Emerging reports suggests that a bloody clash which took place in Goshi town has led to the death of 27 jihadist.
The Associated Press reports that Cameroon soldiers killed at least 27 Boko Haram fighters after launching a cross-border operation in the Nigerian locality of Goshi that also resulted in the death of one soldier, a senior military official said.
At least seven other soldiers were injured in the operation early Thursday, said Gen Jacob Kodji.
Kodji said the Nigerian Islamic extremist group launched a series of attacks in Cameroon earlier this week.
“At least 27 Boko Haram fighters were killed in Thursday morning’s operation,” said the commander of Cameroon troops in the area.
The soldiers remain on the battle front there, he added.
Ashigashiya straddles the order of northern Cameroon and Nigeria. Regional forces from both countries have since December 2015 been launching raids on Boko Haram strongholds along their boarders.
It will be recalled that six people were killed in Cameroon on Wednesday, February 10, following a double suicide attack in the village of Nguetchewe, which lies close to the border.

Titled “Naira On Trial: To devaluate or Not?” had business tycoons, professionals, analysts, among others in attendance.
The keynote speakers took turns to share their insights on the topic focusing on the merits and demerits of devaluating Naira.

– Kanu makes a striking revelation that the death of some Biafrans is inevitable but their sacrifice will be worth it in the end when Biafra eventually becomes a reality.

Communicating his thoughts through his brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, the radio Biafra director said: “They will kill us but by the end Biafra will come,” the 48-year-old added: “I am a prisoner of conscience and killing unarmed Biafran protesters is a crime against humanity.”

Twenty other pro-Biafra agitators reportedly got injured in the course of a surprise attack launched by security operatives.

Tears flowed freely inside the Ekiti State Judiciary premises on Friday as a Chief Magistrate’s Court remanded 16 students of Afe Babalola University (ABUAD), Ado Ekiti in prison custody for their roles in the mayhem that rocked the institution last Sunday.
They are being prosecuted for attempted robbery, arson and burglary allegedly committed during the riot that occurred on the campus of the private university.
They were accused of attempting to rob a branch of Wema Bank located inside the campus, setting houses of ABUAD security staff members ablaze and burglary of a boutique belonging to the wife of the university’s founder, Mrs. Modupe Babalola.
Parents of the remanded students broke down and wept profusely as their children were being marched into a Toyota pick-up van belonging to the state command of the Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) heading for the Federal Prisons, Ado Ekiti.
The affected students are to remain in prison custody pending an advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
The mother of the only female student among the accused persons amid sobs asserted the innocence of her daughter who was said to be in her final year at the university.
A distraught mother of one of the embattled students lamented saying: “I have been fasting and praying, why is my child implicated in this case? I have struggled to give him the best education, I didn’t know this is where it would take him. My child is innocent oh!”

=> REVEALED: Possible locations of Chibok girls identified by the Nigerian Air Force-Nigerianeye
Possible locations of the abducted Chibok school girls may have been identified by the Nigerian Air Force ,according to indications last night.
The Director of Public Relations of the Air Force, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, told Channels Television that the force has therefore abstained from attacking the identified areas to avoid hitting the girls.
The latest aerial bombardment of Sambisa forest,Famuyiwa said, had been aimed at the logistics base of the Boko Haram sect and not areas where the Chibok girls could be located.
He said:“We have no fears that the girls are not there because hat particular location has been under surveillance for quite a while and we suspected maybe it’s a kind of ammunition depot or maybe a workshop that they are using as their logistics place.
“Once you take off the logistics base, of course you gradually weaken the resolve of the enemy to be able to prosecute any campaign.”
Group Captain Famuyiwa said the military is deploying the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to maximum use in its battle with Boko Haram because it is cheaper to run and reduces lives.
The UAVs,he said : “have the capability to be airborne for up to eleven hours and they are quite cheap to maintain. So, we have been able to employ the UAV to a great extent to carry out reconnaissance and surveillance basically for intelligence gathering on the activities of the Boko Haram.”
He said that the UAVs have also helped the Air Force to understand the terrorists’ pattern of movement and “how to be able to counter them should they want to strike or spring any surprise”.
The girls were abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School,Chibok,Borno State.
Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo said last week that the girls may never be found again.
