17-Year Old Girl Arrested With Explosives In Cameroon

A 17-year old girl has been arrested with explosives in Cameroon in an area where Boko Haram has been wreaking havoc in recent months, leaving many dead and adding to the growing number of displaced persons and refugees.

Bintou Aboubakar was arrested on Tuesday morning at Zeleved locality in Cameroon’s far north by members of the civilian task force in the region, reported Cameroonian newspaper,L’Oeil du Sahel.

The newspaper said one of the suspects was able to escape and security forces had swung into action for his/her arrest.

Boko Haram has been wreaking havoc in Cameroon since 2014, leaving thousands of people dead and hundreds of thousands displaced.

Many people have been kidnapped and radicalised youth who may want to return home often face rejection from the communities they so badly hurt.

In neighboring Nigeria, the story is even worse, with tens of thousands killed and millions displaced.
