Members of the Nigerian sect were planning an attack against a military post before being trapped.
According to sources from the Joint Multinational Force (JMF) to fight against Boko Haram, the Cameroonian army killed on the night of November 8 to 9, more than 20 activists of the group of the Islamic State (IS) of West Africa.
Members of Boko Haram heavily armed were about to launch an attack on the outpost of the Cameroonian army located in Sandawadjiri. “Our soldiers were on alert and they cancelled the attack killing more than 20 members of Boko Haram and wounding several others,” reports our source.
Recently, Boko Haram addresses only military facilities in Cameroon and Nigeria. Last week these followers of Boko Haram attacked the military post in Nigeria Mallam Fatori killing five soldiers, including a Lieutenant Colonel.
Last Monday, a vehicle carrying Cameroonian military had mounted a mine on the Wambaché-Limani axis in Far North. Three soldiers were seriously injured according to military sources.
The attacks came as the Multinational Joint Force (Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Cameroon) is about to launch a decisive offensive against Boko Haram in the Lake Chad area and in its stronghold in Sambisa.
Since February 2014, Cameroon is plagued by incessant attacks of Islamist insurgents in the Mayo-Sava, Mayo Tsanaga and-Logon and Chari divisions.
