(Business in Cameroon) - On November 18, 2014, the Cameroonian Defence Minister, Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o, received a donation of military equipment from Germany in the form of 120 all-terrain vehicles which “have proven themselves in past military operations in areas such as Afghanistan.”

In speaking about the donation, which included 60 Mercedes WOLF jeeps and 60 UNIMOG trucks, Minister Mebe Ngo’o noted that “this large donation is for the fight against Boko Haram and will support the participation of Cameroonian forces in the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA).”

Indeed, for several months, the Nigerian Islamist sect, which has attacked several areas of northern Nigeria bordering the towns and villages of Extreme-North, Cameroon, has persisted in carrying out incursions in Cameroon. Boko Haram, which has already kidnapped and later released several expatriates and Cameroonian nationals, can expect a robust response now from the Cameroon at the border it shares with Nigeria.
