B'Haram Recruits Hundreds Of Young Cameroonians To Attack Cities

Since the Ebola virus became a plague from hell, the activities of Boko Haram has been sort of masked because the attention that the sect wants is not given to them.  The sect has recruited and trained hundreds of young Cameroonians and forced them to carry out attacks in their own country.  This attack may equally spread to other parts of the Cameroon if care is not taken. 

“Boko Haram has recruited many young people” from Cameroon’s Far North region, a police officer from the area told AFP on condition of anonymity.


“They are now asking them to prove themselves on home ground,” he said.

“At a recent meeting, Amadou Ali said he had ‘a list of 450 young people’ from Kolofata (his hometown) who were recruited by Boko Haram,” according to the police officer.

“The ease with which the perpetrators were moving in the town, where they controlled the streets, and the precision with which they attacked the homes of the deputy prime minister and the sultan reinforce our belief that some Cameroonians were in their ranks,” the same source said.

French is common in Cameroon, which was once a colony of France. The other languages are spoken on both sides of the border with Nigeria, which was once under British rule.

“Children from Kolofata were conscripted, drugged, manipulated and sent against their own city,” the policeman added.
