Nigeria: Cameroon special forces kill 162 Boko Haram extremists, retaken town of Goshi


Cameroon’s special forces have killed 162 Boko Haram militants in Nigeria’s northeastern town of Goshi, destroying bomb factories and weapons to retake the extremist stronghold, the government said.

The town is now under the control of Nigerian forces after the operation led by Cameroon special forces from Feb. 11 to Feb. 14, Cameroon’s communication minister Issa Tchiroma Bakary said late Monday.

Cameroon forces freed about 100 people being held by the insurgents, including Cameroonians and Nigerians, he said. Two members of Cameroon’s military were killed, he said. The two, including a senior commander, were reported killed after their convoy hit a vehicle Sunday.

“The town of Goshi in Nigeria was formally identified as one of the Boko Haram posts, hosting factories for the manufacturing of bombs and mines,” Bakary said. He added that the town was also used to house teenagers who are used as human bombs during suicide attacks.
