12 Boko Haram Hideouts Located In Cameroon

The Nigerian armed forces have located about a
dozen hideouts of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram, in
neighbouring Cameroon.

Consequently, the Federal Government is mounting
pressure on the neighbouring country for collaboration in
routing the insurgents.
President Goodluck Jonathan and President Paul Biya are
already in talks on how to deal with the security challenge,
authoritative sources said yesterday in Abuja.
Nigeria is said to have tabled four conditions before
Cameroon for its consideration on the issue.
A military source said that many Boko Haram leaders and
field commanders have relocated to Cameroon from where
they direct operations in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states,
the latest being Sunday’s massacre of about 50 students of
Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe State and
Wednesday’s attack in Madagali and Michika Local
Government areas of Adamawa State.
The source said: “We have been able to establish that Boko
Haram now operates fully from Cameroon where they have
more than a dozen of deadly bases. Most of their wanted
leaders live in havens in the Francophone country.
“The sad aspect is that they have been operating with
impunity in Cameroon. We do not know why they enjoy
such latitude.
“We have done reconnaissance which confirmed that the
sect has been coming in and out of Cameroon to wreak
havoc on innocent villages and communities in Nigeria.”
The Federal Government, the source said, has been liaising
with the Cameroonian government although it is yet to get a
decisive response.
