800 Cameroonians arrested over the links to Nigeria-based Boko Haram group. One of the arrested is Prince Yerima Abba Yusufa. Despite army claims that Boko Haram is defeated, the group recently issues a new video.
Cameroonian investigative journalist, Bisong Etahoben, has stated that the country’s authorities have sentenced 109 supposed Boko Haram members to death. Nigerians in their reactions praise the government of the neighbouring country for this decision. Cameroon is among the 5 West African countries that have been badly affected by the attacks of the deadly Boko Haram sect.
Muhammadu Buhari during his inauguration on May 29, 2015, promised to wipe out the insurgents. He gave his army chiefs three-months deadline to end the insurgency in Nigeria. Buhari in December last year announced that Nigerian army has technically defeated the terrorists.
However, it seems that the war is still far from the end.
