Divisional Officer places 23 alleged Boko Haram accomplices under police surveillance

23 alleged accomplices of Boko Haram have been placed under police surveillance in the district of Yagoua in the Far North region of the country. The Divisional Officer Kwenti Ndoh Simon decided to put all 23 under police surveillance and ordered a major investigation. They are believed to have hosted their cousins ​​or brothers from Nigeria mostly members of the Islamic sect.

DO Kwenti has also reacted to concerns from human rights groups over his decision saying his administration does not witch hunt, "we are not in the stigmatization of an ethnic group, it just happens that they are linguistically and culturally close”. The DO added that in as much as they helped them to settle by providing accommodation or hospitality, the Cameroon government has the right to know these Nigerian relatives and their role in the on-going conflict.
