Written by Deckson N.

Around ten assailants were killed on Friday by the army during confrontations in the Kolofata subdivision of the Mayo-Sava division of the Far North region, we learned from a leading security source.

Attackers from the Nigerian Islamic sect Boko Haram, armed with war rifles, and on motorcycles, attacked the Ndaba village (border crossing to Nigeria), and located in Kolofata, forcing people to flee.

Soon, the Cameroonian army under the banner of the Mixed Multi-National Force (MMF), whose first sector is based in Mora, reacted.

According to our source, the record shows about ten assailants killed.

Two other people were killed in the population. Six (6) BIR soldiers – an elite unit of the Cameroonian army – were wounded by gunshots including one serious case.

More than thirty civilians were wounded.

The day before, four (04) members of the vigilante committee of Achigachia died in clashes with terrorists from Boko Haram, who pledged allegiance to the organization of the Islamic state and are called, Province of Islamic State in West Africa.

Early in the morning of Friday, a Kamikaze was killed and 1 civilian seriously wounded, in a suicide bombing in Tchakarmari.

The outbreak of fighting occurred in a context where the authorities announced the military weakening of Boko Haram, but continued its incursions and exactions against the population.
