Boko Haram insurgents have attacked the border village of Kamouna in Cameroon, roasting nine children to death in an ensuing inferno on houses.
Sources told Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC that many houses and properties were also destroyed by the rampaging terrorists.
Recently, UN’s agency for refugees (UNHCR) said in a report that there have been 18 recorded attacks by Boko Haram in northern Cameroon in 2015 alone, forcing almost 100,000 Cameroonians from their homes.
The governor of Cameroon’s Far North Region, Middjiyawa Bakari, in May said over 62,000 Nigerian and Cameroonian children of school age have been denied education because cross border attacks by Boko Haram have prevented the government from getting educational facilities to the displaced persons.
“The government and aid agencies are grappling with a complex emergency situation,” Bakari said.
