Boko Haram abducts wife of Cameroon’s deputy Prime Minister

Militants engaged Cameroonian soldiers for some time, a commander said.

————————–

Cameroonian authorities said extremist sect Boko Haram abducted the wife of the country’s deputy prime minister Sunday.

The wife of Deputy Prime Minister Amadou Ali and her maid were kidnapped in Cameroun’s northern town of Kolofata, according to the Information Minister Issa Tchiroma.

The attackers reportedly stormed their residence and took the woman away.

A military commander in the area said Boko Haram militants engaged Cameroonian soldiers in the town for some time.

The deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Ali, managed to escape the assailants to a neighbouring town, commander Feliz Formekong was quoted by Reuters news agency as saying.

A local religious leader, named Seini Lamine, was also abducted from the same town in a separate incident.

Mr. Lamine, who is called the Lamido, is the mayor of the town.

Cameroun strengthened security at its border in April after Boko Haram abducted nearly 300 school girls in Chibok, Borno State.

More than 200 of the abducted girls remain in captivity.
The attack is the third Boko Haram attack into Cameroon since Friday.

At least four soldiers were killed in the previous attacks, reported Reuters.

    Boko Haram should kidnap Hippopatience and Dumbo, then take them to Sambisa Forest so they know terrorism is serious criminality. Cameroon was one of the countries that foolishly joined Dumbo in declaring war on terrorism in Paris… a costly mistake that denied Chibok girls their freedom which Ahmed Salkida had negotiated. I wish the BH will face the politicians alone who can grant their demands, and leave innocent Nigerians in peace!

      (Does it mean that IBB and all these Muslim traditional rulers and Governors that are sponsoring Boko Haram to kill Christians and burn our churches in the North are not aware of the passage in the Qur’an that says there must not be compulsion in Islam as Mohammadu Buhari asserted in a widely publicized interview on Saturday, the 21st of April, 2011?

      A: I have worked so closely with Mohammadu Buahri for five years, and I can prove it that General Buhari is the most notable outspoken jihadist hardliner in Nigeria who is also strategically sponsoring Boko Haram.

      Q: General Buhari told a group of pressmen in April 2011 that there is no compulsion in Islam and it is a religion of peace. He quoted Surah Al-Baqarah Chapter 2:225. What can you say to that?

      A: What I can say to that is General Buhari, like all other true Muslims, is a hypocrite who is shying away from the fact)

            really ? what about his family, friends

          • Mosaku 147

            Do you think he cares? if his wife and kids are anywhere around Nigeria,they will be guarded by 200soldiers,65 mobile anti-terror police,45 DSS,35 civil defence,25 firemen and 15 NEMA officials and ‘safely’ escorted to the airport to fly first class on BA. But if their 40 helicopters have arrived,they will only need half the number of security to fly on both sides with them to the nearest West African capital to study European /American laws and countries they share extradition pact with so as not to fall and get the ibori treatment.
            But one thing you can be sure of, God no go gree them escape.they must face whatever crisis that arises from their actions.
            As for his friends,the can die for all he cares.

        ‘Strategically sponsoring Boko Haram’. If you are right as claimed,why then has Mr President not ordered his arrest? Is it because he is scared of him? Correct me if I am wrong,but I thought the laws on terror in Nigeria and most countries of the world stipulates that arrest can be made on suspects,if it’s proven that they are in any way or form rendering assistance to terror groups.
        Is Buhari bigger than Nigeria? Wetin go happen sef if he is arrested? What would have happened had he been killed by BH? Nothing I dere to submit if your assertions are true. But you can be very sure that something will surely happen if anything happens to him. Jonathan himself knows Buhari has got nothing to do with BH.
        Buhari’s biggest and only problem is that he talks too much when he decides to talk and most times he is knowingly misquoted by his ‘enemies’. I am not his fan as such,but I think he should be left to be.

    Waiting for Asari Dokubo, Madam patience, Orisejafor and other Jonathanians to give us the reasons, that BH is not just evil or terrorists but that this was also stage managed, it is APC, it is Muslim vs. Christians or that it is because of 2015. The wise knows that BH is pure evil that will kidnap or kill Christians and Muslims. All we need is a true and strong leader who will fight BH to submission rather than dividing people along religious and ethnic lines, who will take responsibility as commander in chief for failures, and who will command a military that rather than gun down innocent protesting people in kaduna/ Zaria, burn BRT buses in Lagos, close maiduguru airport to a governor & pilgrims and harass newspaper vendors , will go to Sambisa forest to wipe out BH. God will give us such a leader not thier “Dia ris god ooo”

    Ose. Don’t get the Scottish Referendum the wrong way. Nigeria is not the UK. Compare Nigeria to Sudan or Ethiopia/Eritrea. In the UK, they don’t have leaders like Babangida who annuls an election. A free and fair election. In the UK, you do not have leaders like Jonathan who does not give a damn about accountability; In the UK, $9.3M belonging to the Nigerian People will not be laundered in a failed arms deal; In the UK, the Chancellor of the Exchequer would not accuse the government of misappropriating or not accounting for $20b. These are some of the more recent macabre stories from Nigeria. We will be free of the clutches of slavery that shackle us in Nigeria. It is natural and will happen. The UK is not Nigeria.
