MNJTF Soldier, 5 Others Die After Terrorists Attack Cameroon’s Far North Region 

The terrorists attacked several villages, killing at least six people, alongside the soldier who was a part of the Multinational Joint Task Force contingent in Cameroon’s Far North Region.

Six persons, including a Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) soldier identified as Olivier Ngono, were killed over the weekend by Boko Haram terrorists during an attack on Kismatari and Morgo villages.

According to military sources, Boko Haram terrorists entered Kismatari village in the Kolofata council area of Mayo Sawa division between the night of Sunday, Aug. 7 and Monday, Aug. 8, 2022, killing three civilians before launching another attack on Morgo in Koza sub-division of Mayo Tsanaga division in the same night where they killed one civilian and wounded one other.

The wounded individual, who was identified as Malla Tchengueou, was later admitted into the Adventist Hospital in Koza, where he is currently receiving medical treatment. 

“The soldier was a passenger on a motorcycle when the terrorists hiding in the bushes nearby in Gogolom opened fire, killing him and the motorcycle rider,” a military source revealed.
