This is just as the troops attached to the Multinational Joint Task Force in Northern Cameroon arrested 10 members of the ferocious death cult.

“A Multinational Joint Task Force (MJTF) set up by Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Benin and Cameroon to fight Boko Haram across borders, ambushed a group of the terrorists on Wednesday near the town of Fotokol.

“It is located close to the border with Nigeria.

“No soldiers were killed during the clashes, according to Dobekreo,’’ the MJTF Commander, Bouba Dobekreo, said.

“Ten other elements of the armed group were arrested, and heavy weapons, including machine guns, were also seized,” he added.

Boko Haram has been weakened in recent months due to intensified strikes by coalition troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad, and Cameroon. French and U.S. troops are supporting the regional force.
