Despite the lull since the Cameroonian army managed to significantly reduce the destructive capacity of Boko Haram terrorist, this week was deadly on the front of the war against the Islamic sect from Nigeria. Insurgents have stepped up incursions into Cameroonian territory, killing four people, including a brave soldier.
First on the night of Monday, October 17, 2016, a violent terrorist attack on Tagawa, a village in the Far North Region, took stock of three civilians killed and houses burned. The Cameroonian army managed to rout the Islamists in several other attacks before losing one of its valiant men in the night of Wednesday 19 to Thursday, October 20, 2016 during an offensive of suspected members of Boko Haram against the post Brigade of the 42nd mountain infantry, stationed in Mayo-Moskota, Far North Region.
The soldier killed during this well targeted offensive is Lieutenant Philip Kaldossa, former resident of the Joint Military School in Yaounde, from the Adamawa Region.
