About 39 Boko Haram insurgents have been killed in Cameroon, the country’s defence ministry said on Sunday.

The militants were said to have met their waterloo during an attack in three different communities located in far north of Cameroon near Nigeria.

According to a statement released by the defence ministry and obtained by AFP, the attack took place on Friday and four Nigerian refugees also got killed.

However, details of the casualties suffered by the army were not given.

Cameroonian troops were also said to have engaged the militants in a serious battle until they moved out of the country’s borders.

Three vehicles belonging to the militants, several machine guns and explosives were also said to be destroyed during the operation.

Cameroon, which shares a border of more than 2,000 kilometres (1,200 miles) with Nigeria, has been affected by the insurgency in the north-eastern part of Nigeria.

Between May and July, 10 Chinese workers alongside 17 Cameroonians were abducted in the country.

Though they were released five months later, Paul Biya, president of the country, vowed to ensure that activities of the sect are brought under control.

The ceasefire reached with the group has not put an end to the attacks, giving rise to the belief that there some factions of Boko Haram are opposed to a peaceful resolution of the crisis.
