3 Die In Boko Haram Attacks On Two Cameroon Communities

Boko Haram fighters are continuing their attacks against civilians in the Far North region of Cameroon despite the claim by the government that security forces have decimated the power of the insurgents.

Three persons were killed in two separate attacks by Boko Haram terrorists on Mora and Waza in the Far North region of Cameroon.

According to local sources, the attack took place over the weekend. The first victim has been identified as 18-year-old Mahama Talla, who was hit by a bullet at night in his house in Guirbala quarter.

“The attack also resulted in the wounding of one Gazawa Gara by stray bullets. Also, on March 11, at about 1 p.m. in the village of Blassaleu within the canton of Limani, the body of a man identified as Ali Kangado, a farmer living in Homaka, was found by villagers. Residents in the town suspect Boko Haram terrorists as being the perpetrators of the killings,” a source revealed.

The second attack took place on national highway number one, between Waza and Mora still in the Far North region. 

“The corpse of Sonkuyat Duclair, a driver was found by soldiers a few days ago in an area called Maison Blanche situated six kilometres from Waza on the highway between Waza and Mora,” said a local source. 

“The unfortunate man was surprised by the Boko Haram terrorists in the company of another driver and two mechanics while they were repairing a truck loaded with avocado pear bound for Kousseri.”

His colleague, Nguemeta was wounded by a bullet while despite the intervention of the defence and security forces, Duclair died, local sources revealed.

Despite repeated claims by the government that it has reduced the fighting spirit of the Boko Haram terrorists in the Far North region, the combatants of the sect continue to multiply attacks by the day.

On Jan. 8, 2021, 13 civilians, including eight children and one adolescent were killed in an attack by the terrorists on the locality of Mozogo.
