Suicide bomber attack in Maroua kills 1, injures 5 0

A suicide bomber attack blamed on the Nigerian Islamic sect, Boko Haram on Saturday killed one person and left five people seriously injured in the locality of Kolofata located in the Mayo-Sava Division in the Far North region.

Cameroon Concord News gathered from a well-placed security source that only the kamikaze, a young man of about 15 years, was killed in the explosion.  The wounded were rushed over to the military hospital in Kolofata.

This is the second suicide bombing that occurred in Mayo-Sava since the beginning of April. In the early morning of April 3, two women kamikazes were killed at the entrance of Mora behind the technical high school.
