 Boko Haram insurgents have killed residents at the border town of Fotokol in Cameroon.
 Fotokol residents had reported to news men that as many as 100 people have been killed earlier on  Tuesday when the sect invaded local mosque and homes.
Chadian news website al Whida said that Chadian forces had pursed the Boko Haram fighters into Gambaru and Ngala in Borno state killing 200 of them while nine of the Chadians soldiers lost their lives.
The pursuit followed a Boko Haram attack on a military base of the Multinational Joint Taskforce along Nigeria’s border with Cameroon.
The taskforce comprises Chad, Niger, and Nigeria and precedes a proposed regional force of 7,500 troops authorized last week by the African Union to fight Boko Haram.
Chad had recently carried out air strikes on the insurgents position. Cameroon’s Information Minister Issa Tchiroma declined to comment on the reported massacre, while defense spokesman Didier Badjeck said the death toll was not known.
