The BIR, elite unit of the army of cameroon, is on the front line in the fight against the group jihadist nigerian Boko Haram in the region, cameroon's Extreme North.

According to Premium Times, this was disclosed by the Acting General Officer commanding, GOC 8 Task Force Division, Stevenson Olabanji, when he visited troops of the 118 Task Force Battalion under his division at their front-line location in Gudumbali village of Guzamala local government area of Borno state.

The statement said the GOC issued motivational orders to the troops, asking them to always ensure their weapons are serviceable.

He added that the final phase of the operation to dislodge the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists who are still operating in remote islands within the Lake Chad Basin is in the offing.

According to Antigha, part of what Olabanji had said included, "The tempo of ongoing clearance operations will be increased, so be prepared".

The primary Boko Haram base in the Sambisa Forest was cleared a year ago by the army, but the group has successfully launched deadly attacks in Borno state.

Abu's claims were corroborated by online newspaper, Sahara Reporters in a tweet.
