In a statement, the Security Council noted the  attacks in Chad, Cameroon and Niger in recent days were "heinous", reports cited.

The actions of Boko Haram constituted one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, it said.

Nigerian extremist group Boko Haram attacked  Ngouboua village in Chad Friday, killing one local leader, one soldier and  injured several others. It was the extremist group's first attack in Chad.

Since last week, the Nigerian town of Diffa has come under heavy attacks. The Security Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organisers, financiers and sponsors of acts of terrorism to justice.
