Terrorists Kill Traders In Darak, Cameroon

The four soldiers were killed at night in the Far North region, evidencing that terror groups remain a threat to civilian lives in hat part of Cameroon.

Terrorists of the Boko Haram terror group killed four traders in Darak council, Far North region of Cameroon, on Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2022.

According to the Logone et Chari division prefect, Fombele Mathias, the assailants targeted Katikime village, a Lake Chad island in the Darak Council area.

This attack contradicts the Cameroon government’s claims that it has significantly defeated Boko Haram terrorists in the country. In the past few months, there has been a spike in the number of Boko Haram attacks in the Far North region of Cameroon, which borders Nigeria, and the number of deaths and destruction has increased with each attack.

Lake Chad is a vast area of water and marshland made up of inhabited islands to the west, some of which are hideouts for Boko Haram terrorists from Nigeria as well as their dissident branch, the Islamic State West African province (ISWAP).
