Boko Haram militants launched an onslaught on the Cameroonian village of Yam Gazawa, late on Monday burning down buildings and stealing livestock. The attackers completely destroyed 9 houses - including the home of the traditional ruler and killed two of his relatives. Yam Gazawa is located in the Maya Tsanaga Division in the Far North region.
In another attack on Wednesday, a member of a non state policing group in Mora was murdered by Boko Haram fighters. Our intelligence officers in the Far North region are now saying that both the Cameroon government spokesman and minister of communications, Issa Tchiroma Bakary and the Cameroon military spokes person, Colonel Didier Badject have politicized the coverage of the war against the Nigerian Islamic sect.
