Cameroon – Adamawa: Four members of UN mission killed by armed men!

Written by Deckson N.

Four members of a UN mission were killed on Tuesday in the locality of Kontcha, according to community sources.

The information is confirmed at KOACI by the services of the Governor of Adamaoua.

4 people, including a UN official of Kenyan nationality, 02 Nigerians and 01 Cameroonian, were killed around noon on 31 January 2017 by unidentified gunmen not far from the town of Kontcha in the Faro-and-Deo division, Adamawa region, precisely towards the border between Nigeria and Cameroon.

The crew stationed for several days in the locality was working on the demarcation of the boundary between Nigeria and Cameroon, resulting from the decision rendered by the International Court of Justice of The Hague, about the Bakassi conflict.

The Hague decision had recognized the Bakassi peninsula to be owned by Cameroon, the subject of dispute between Cameroon and Nigeria.

The investigation opened by the police, should determine whether it was an act of banditry, a robbery that went wrong because of the high presence of bandits in the region. Or, specify if it was an armed attack of the elements of Boko Haram, KOACI learns.

The Nigerian Islamic sect, now known as the Islamic State of West Africa, is rampant on the border between Cameroon and Nigeria and in much of Lake Chad.
