Chadian troops took control of the Nigerian border town of Gamboru on Tuesday after launching a ground offensive against the jihadist Boko Haram group, an AFP journalist reported.

The Chadian army crossed into Gamboru, which Boko Haram militants had seized several months ago, from the Cameroonian town of Fotokol after days of intense fighting.

Chad had sent ground troops into Nigeria for the first time on Tuesday to fight Boko Haram in a sign of increased regional pressure on the Islamist rebels after weeks of surging violence.

The Chadian offensive on the town of Gamboru, which borders Cameroon, follows days of clashes with the Islamists who control vast swathes of northeast Nigeria.
