Boko Haram kills dozen in twin attack – Cameroon

Published on

A dozen people were killed on the night of Sunday, 7 April 2020 in the Far North region of Cameroon after a twin suicide bombing which was blamed on the Islamist sect Boko Haram.

This is according to local sources contacted whom the African Press Agency (APA) contacted by phone.

The assault by the jihadist movement, perpetrated in Amchide, a town near the border with Nigeria, claimed the lives of at least seven civilians, while fifteen others were wounded. A few hours earlier, two soldiers were ambushed in Zigague, a stone’s throw away.

Boko Haram’s attacks, which a year ago were carried out almost every day, simultaneously and in droves, are now reduced to sporadic raids, or even to landmine ad attacks in the Sahel.

We also note that the government has, for many months stopped communicating about the attacks attributed to Boko Haram, and their death toll.
