Boko Haram Bomb Blast Hits Amchide In Northern Cameroon

A loud explosion was heard in Cameroon on Tuesday night in the same area where Boko Haram terrorists have been wreaking havoc in recent time.

Cameroonian newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel, said the bomb blast occurred in Amchide, a locality in the the country’s far north, which was recently hit by Boko Haram.

Casualty figure was unknown as the blast happened in the night in this central/west African country.

 

Boko Haram has been wreaking havoc in Cameroon since 2014, leaving thousands of people dead and hundreds of thousands scampering for safety away from their ancestral land.

In neighboring Nigeria, where the insurgency began in 2009, more than 25 thousand people have been killed by Boko Haram and over two million others have been displaced.

Nigerian leader, Muhammadu Buhari and Cameroonian President Paul Biya, had all vowed to crush the ISIS partners in West Africa, but as days turned into weeks and weeks painfully turned into months and years, it soon became clear that they had failed as the terrorists continued to kill.
