Boko Haram Seizes Town On Cameroon-Nigeria Border by erunz(m): 4:15pm On Oct 23, 2015
Boko Haram Islamists on Friday seized control of a town in the far north of Cameroon which lies on the border with Nigeria, security and regional sources said.

“They now control Kerawa,” a security source told AFP on condition of anonymity, referring to the Nigerian Islamist group.

The information was confirmed by another source close to the regional authorities, who said an unspecified number of civilians had been killed in the assault.

“Boko Haram has controlled Kerawa since Friday morning,” the source said adding the Cameroonian army had sent in reinforcements.

It was not immediately clear whether troops had engaged in any fighting with the Islamists.

The security source “several people” killed inside the mosques in the town on Thursday, quoting an unconfirmed report that 11 people had died.

Kerawa, which has 50,000 inhabitants, is located in the Kolofata district that is regularly targeted by Boko Haram.

There is a military camp inside the town, which was last hit by a double suicide bombing on September 3, which claimed at least 30 lives.

Cameroon, Chad and Niger have formed a military alliance with Nigeria and Benin to battle the extremists, who this year declared allegiance to the Islamic State.

The Islamists’ grip on the region has suffered as a result of offensives launched by local armies.

But the group maintains strongholds in areas that are difficult to access, such as the Sambisa forest, the Mandara mountains and the numerous islands of Lake Chad.

Also on Friday, at least 28 people were killed in a suicide bombing at a mosque in Maiduguri in northeast Nigeria.

Since 2009, the insurgency has claimed at least 17,000 lives.

Re: Boko Haram Seizes Town On Cameroon-Nigeria Border by ShowYourCertificate: 4:18pm On Oct 23, 2015
This is serious. I personally think Boko Haram has gone way beyond our leaders. This is because our leaders politicised it.

When Boko was attacking us and running to Cameroon in the past, the Cameroonian government were politicising the whole situation by refusing to help us. They rather chose to humiliate us back then. Well Boko Haram is now causing havoc in their territory. Ain't karma a b**tch

When Boko was attacking us, the APC was busy using the attack to score political points. They rather chose to humiliate the GEJ government instead of condemning the Boko Haram activities and supporting the government of the day. Well APC is now in power and Boko Haram is growing from strength to strength, undermining Buhari's war against terrorism. Ain't karma a b**tch

They all got whats coming. They need to apologise else karma will keep striking.

[b]I don't really understand this.

One moment are winning the war, the next moment we are not. . . It is not good to politicize or bank on the tragedies of others to achieve political support like APC did during the campaign season.

The masses always knew that politicians making promises during campaign is like the promises a guy makes just to get a girl into bed.

We are now seeing that Boko Haram is not the fault of the previous government because am sure this present government have learnt its not about talking the talk but walking the walk.

Let us politicize this now because that will never solve our problems. People are dying every day damn it.

Let us throw away any form of political alliance or sentiment we may harbour and support this government to see (hope) if it can bring this to end.

That is the least we can do now because frankly this concerns us all not just the government...

Nigerian military are still issuing warnings when these guys are making it clear to them to shove the warnings up their Asss... why not stop this talk and selfie parade and start full military pounding.

This boko haram menace brought a whole military power like Nigeria to a Childish state...

Just negodu undecided

Just as I pray that God will see us through this challenges, I also rejoiced with GEJ cos he would have blamed himself for winning Second term. Now dat a northerner is in charge and d problem still persist in the north, let's see if his people/party will accuse him of insincerity in handling the task.
