Naga Hamidou took part in a punitive expedition in the border town of Kreda-Wallé.
Engaged in the war against the terrorist sect Boko Haram, Cameroon has lost one of her valiante fighters. The Chief Operating Officer of the Kerawa vigilante committee was killed on September 23, 2016. Naga Hamidou took part in an operation in the town of Kreda-Wallé (between Kerawa and Djimini) in Nigeria, reports our colleague Guibaï Gatama following very closely the situation in the Far North Region.
According to L’Oeil du Sahel newspaper’s editor, the punitive expedition resulted in the death of two Boko Haram fighters, the capture of 4 others and the seizure of 160 head of cattle and 270 goats. The “dreaded” Naga Hamidou died at the age of 55. He leaves two widows and 12 children weeping.
Vigilante Committees are made up of civilians. They provide security in various communities of the Far North Region. These are patriots who stand out for their courage and heroism. Through their actions, many attacks were thwarted from terrorist infiltrations and checks. The highest authorities of the countries recognize the importance of their involvement in the fight. The President of the Republic welcomes the work by rewarding them from time to time, through gifts in kind and in hard cash.
