Boko Haram attacks Cameroonian military base

The Nigerian extremist sect, Boko Haram, has attacked a military base in Cameroon with at least one soldiers killed, local media have reported.

The attack occurred early Monday, about a week after Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, threatened attacks on Cameroon after the country’s military launched repeated assaults against the sect.

A Cameroun-based journalist, Bisong Eta, who tweeted about the attack, said the attack was repelled by the Cameroonian military and that calm had returned.

“@ChiefBisongEta1 Cameroonian soldier Onana Balla died in the BH attack on the Kolofata army base this morning. Attackers chased away. All calm now,” he tweeted.

Boko Haram has conducted several raids in Kolofata in the past, which was often repelled by the military.
The insurgents had in July last year kidnapped the wife of the country’s Vice Prime Minister, and a mayor in the region, Seini Boukar Lamine.

Reports say the country’s authorities entered into negotiation with the sect leading to the release of those kidnapped.

In his latest video, Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau warned President of Cameroun, Paul Biya, to suspend his country’s attack on the group or face reprisal.

    Oh yeah, it is still the Kanuris and Fulani that are power hungry, that wants power by all means, and want to dis-stabilise Dumbo Joe’s government. Useless people.

      Those bishops no fear God at all. Instead of them to tell Jonathan the truth.

    Somebody tell Jonathan that when an commander is failing repeatedly you change him. The Kenyan president removed the commander when Al Shabab killed bus travellers, immediately! Nigerian commanders cannot take back territory from a rag tag army. It is clear how they could not defeat rag tag Biafra for 3 years. Even civilians know to use the “sack”. Recall Ihejirika(we did not hear of mutiny when he led the army and he put significant pressure on Boko Haram) if need be or consult the middle rank to know who the able commanders are.
