Not less than 18 people were killed in an attack by Boko Haram insurgents in the Lake Chad region, NAN quoted a Chadian military source as saying.

“Boko Haram elements attacked a village south of Daboua, not far from Chad’s border with Niger, at around 9pm on Thursday,” the military source said.

The insurgents were said to have “cut the throats of 18 people, wounded two others and kidnapped 10 women”.

Chad has seen a recent increase in attacks by the terrorist group.

In May, six people were killed, including four government officials and a soldier, in a Boko Haram attack on a Chadian army checkpoint on an island in Lake Chad.

Chad, Cameroon and Niger have all joined the military effort by Nigeria to crush Boko Haram.

Niger’s army said on Saturday that it killed “10 terrorists” after one of its military positions in the south-west of the country was attacked by Boko Haram.
