According to military sources, the outpost of the army at the Dambore-Ardebe in the Makary subdivision was attacked in the night of 30 September to 1 October 2016 by heavily armed men believed to be Boko Haram fighters.
The results of this umpteenth attack reported a soldier killed two of his comrades wounded. The two wounded by bullets were taken to the Mada hospital where they were put under intensive care.
The sources informed that arms and several ammunition were swept away by these off-the-law. “This position of the navy was completely burned by suspected members of Boko Haram” before their withdrawal to Nigeria according to our source.
Makary, which shares borders with Nigeria, is often targeted by Boko Haram fighters. On October 5, 2012, Abba Djidda Alahdji, the deputy mayor of Makary, was shot at close range at his home in Gambarougara. Boko Haram blamed him for his friendships with the Nigerian police.
According to geo-strategists, the locality of Makary constitute the hub of Boko Haram in Cameroon. Worse, the same sources say that the people of this locality cooperate more with Nigerian terrorists than the Cameroonian army.
