La Republique: Far North inhabitants fear escalating Boko Haram incursions as troops leave for Ambazonia 0

At least seven people have been killed in the Far North region of French Cameroun in the space of three days, in several attacks attributed to the Nigerian Islamic sect, Boko Haram. Cameroon Concord News gathered that in Bogo, a small locality in the Diamaré constituency, a rich merchant was killed on the night of Thursday, November 2, 2017, by unidentified men.

According to security sources, three men aboard a motorcycle shot the merchant at close range in his home. The militants did not take anything from his residence.  On the night of 4th November, 3 people were also killed in Mahola, a town located in the Mayo-Sava Division, just over 30 km from Mora, targeted by Islamist armed incursions. Before disappearing, the attackers took away cattle and 8 motorcycles. The attackers arrived on board motorcycles and fired shots.

The French Cameroun security forces have always attributed these murders to Boko Haram fighters. Troops have been withdrawn from the Far North region and deployed to Southern Cameroons leaving the inhabitants vulnerable to attacks coming in from neighboring Nigeria.
