Boko Haram terrorists killed at least four civilians and wounded several others in an attack from Friday, July 15, to Saturday, July 16, on Moutchikar village in the Koza sub-division of Cameroon’s Far North region.
Local sources said the terrorists came in large numbers and took the villagers by surprise.
“The villagers, in panic, had to escape into the bushes and nearby hills. During this general disarray, the terrorists gunned down four persons,” one of the sources who pleaded for anonymity said.
“Besides the dead, there were also persons wounded who currently receive medical attention in health facilities.”
HumAngle learnt that villagers, after the attack, went to the sub divisional office of Koza to express their anger to the administrative authorities.
The administrative authorities, on their part, assured the population that the necessary measures would be taken to ensure the security of the people in the zone.
