Cameroon: 4 Killed in suspected Boko Haram attack in Kolofata-Northern Region

A suicide bomber has killed at least four people including a gendarme officer in an attack today in Cameroon's Northern town of Kolofata, according to local French daily newspaper L'Oeil du Sahel.

Residents said they heard a loud explosion earlier today at Kolofata- Northern Region. The bomber was suspected to be a Boko Haram member, the local newspaper wrote.


It seems to have become a daily affair in Cameroon’s far north region with regular bomb and gun attacks, which leave many dead and send thousands away from their ancestral land.

In all, Boko Haram has killed more than 2000 civilians in Cameroon since 2014 in over 500 attacks, including 50 suicide bombings. About 150 soldiers and policemen have also died during that unconventional war.

Thousands have been kidnapped and hundreds of thousands have been displaced. But Mr. Biya has not found time in three years to show solidarity to troops or populations running helter-skelter and wondering where the leadership is.
