(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian Minister of Communication, Issa Tchiroma Bakary, revealed during a press conference on 5th July 2016 in Yaoundé, that on 29th June, “approximately fifty Boko Haram terrorists attacked a post of the mixed multinational Force in Homeka, between the towns of Bonderi and Limani”, in Cameroon’s Extreme-North region.

During this attack, we learned, the Nigerian Islamist sect suffered “significant losses”, while a Cameroonian soldier, whose “condition is not life threatening”, sustained a shoulder injury. According to Minister Tchiroma, this attack comes to “remind that even though the enemy is today agonising, they still have some capacity to create problems”.

For several months, Boko Haram members had not attacked the positions of the Cameroonian army and the multinational Force deployed along the border with Nigeria, rather preferring kamikaze attacks. “Let us not forget, we are in a context of lopsided warfare where the military advantage that we have imposed upon the enemy does not always totally shield us from an act of cowardice from terrorists who always operate with masked faces and by surprise”, Issa Tchiroma reminded.
