In response to the attacks, armored personnel carriers and a fighter jet were spotted heading towards the town on Friday morning.

In Cameroon meanwhile, the country’s army managed to hold back an attack from militants in Bodo, North-Eastern Cameroon.

“The attack represented a change of tactics by the militants following a series of battlefield defeats this year in which they have lost territory to a regional force that comprises Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon,” government spokesman Issa Tchiroma said.

“Early Tuesday morning at about 3:40am (0140 GMT) an enemy column in four-wheel drive vehicles opened fire on positions held by our defence forces,” Tchiroma said.

“There followed violent combat until dawn. Faced with the repost of our soldiers, the aggressors beat a retreat leaving behind three dead, a quantity of weapons and a lot of blood,” he said.
