Incessant Attacks Force More Nigerians To Flee To Cameroun

Musdapha Ilo, Maiduguri

More Nigerians have fled to neighbouring Cameroun Republic following attack on yet another Borno village by Boko Haram, leading to the death of 29 persons.



    The attack was launched on Chukungduoa village of Gamboru Ngala local government area, few kilometres from Gamboru which had its own share of attack two weeks ago.
    The latest attacks have force many of the villagers in the area to flee into border communities in Cameroon, complaining that their security could no longer be guaranteed by Nigerian authorities.

    In the attack on Chukungduoa, the gunmen drove into the village in 15 vehicles and several motorcycles and were armed with AK47 rifles, Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDs, petrol bombs.

    Apart from those killed, several others sustained gunshot wounds and are now receiving treatment at a hospital in Cameroon.

    Virtually all the buildings in the village were razed down with fire and only three surviving structures can be seen in the village.
    The attack was launched just over a week after the withdrawal of military troops from the village.
