Another attack of the Islamic sect was diverted by the Cameroonian army in the town of Kerawa.

Members of the terrorist group Boko Haram carried out a raid in the town of Gouzoudou near Kolofata in the Mayo-Sava division. According to military sources of the Joint Multinational Force (JMF), the attack which took place in the night of 1 to 2 September resulted in the death of a 20 year old boy.

The same military sources confirmed that members of the Nigerian terrorist group also kidnapped two people, including a girl aged 20 and a boy of 8-year old, and took them to neighboring Nigeria.

Several shops in the town were emptied of their contents by the attackers. Our source says that the response of Cameroonian soldiers forced the cult members to save their skins by giving up some stolen items on their way. The same source indicates that another attack of Boko Haram was promptly diverted by the Cameroonian troops in the town of Kerawa located about seven kilometers from neighboring Nigeria.

The destruction of Boko Haram bases in Ngoshe and Kumshe, the strengthening of identity checks and setting of vigilante committees in villages, allowed the army to take over the Nigerian sect with its tentacles developed both in Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger.

Militarily speaking, facing the pressure of the troops of the Joint Multinational Force, Boko Haram appears to have lost the ability to conduct major offensive attacks, but continues to multiply deadly suicide operations and isolated attacks.
