Abuja: Boko Haram militants have reportedly killed at least 70 people in an attack on the Cameroonian town of Fotokol on the border with Nigeria.

The Islamist militants attacked civilians in their homes and in the town`s mosque, local officials said, setting many buildings on fire, BBC reported.

The attack comes a day after a regional force said it had driven the militants from a Nigerian town near Fotokol.

The Boko Haram insurgency has left thousands dead over the last six years.

The militants, who now control a large stretch of land in northeastern Nigeria, have also displaced around a million people.
