Body of Cameroonian Soldier Killed By Boko Haram In Nigeria Arrives Home

The body of a Cameroonian soldier who was killed in Nigeria on March 13 while fighting Boko Haram has arrived Cameroon, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

L’Oeil du Sahel newspaper said the body of Ganava André who was killed around the locality of Kumshe in Nigeria arrived Maroua, the regional capital of Cameroon’s far north, on Tuesday.


Boko Haram has killed about 150 Cameroonian soldiers and policemen since 2014 and about 2000 people about the same period in over 500 gun and bomb attacks, including more than 50 suicide bombings.

Not long ago, as attacks escalated in Nigeria, the governor of Borno, the birth place of Boko Haram, said he needed help now “more than ever before”.

President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria and his government have repeatedly claimed that Boko Haram had been decimated but recent incidents show that the “godless, mindless” militants are far from being defeated.
