Cameroon: One soldier killed, two injured in Boko Haram attack

Security sources say one soldier of the Rapid Intervention Battalion(BIR) was killed on Friday night breaking Saturday 10 June when a suicide bomber detonated the explosives.
Reports say the attacker had managed to evade security systems to enter the  protected zone of BIR in Kolofata. Two other soldiers got injured, Cameroon-Info.Net reports.
At least three other attackers passed away on Friday without any other casualties.


In under two weeks the Far North has witnessed about ten attacks. The most deadly happened on 02 June and claimed 11 lives and left several persons injured.
Cameroon has been in this war against the terror group since 2014 . Paul Biya unilaterally declared war in France that same year.
As the soul of the fallen hero rests in peace, the fate of some of his colleagues is uncertain, as  possible sanctions await from Biya for having staged a protest to demand unpaid bonuses. The protest occurred a week ago in the Far North. Later on the soldiers were airlifted to Yaoundé.
