3 Boko Haram Members Surrender In Cameroon, Countrymen Say “Kill Them, It’s A Trap”

Although we are headquartered in Washington D.C. USA, our reporters and editors are working around the globe to cover what you care about. We invite you to donate to our fundraiser to help us keep our quality news free and available for all.

Three men, claiming to be members of Boko Haram, showed up in this little Caneroonian town on Friday night, and went straight to surrender to the army, but Cameroonians who reacted on Saturday called on soldiers to execute them, alleging that it was a trap by an enemy coming close to target.

Local newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel, said the three self declared terrorists gave themselves up in Kerawa, Cameroon’s far north to the Rapid Intervention Battalion, known by its French acronym BIR.

But commentators on the social media immediately found the surrender suspicious and said the enemy had moved within target area to inflict more pain to a region already under terror.

Their surrender came the same day two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a market in Meme, a locality just 13 kilometres from the town of Mora in Cameroon’s far north, killing 20 people and injuring at least 52 in the morning.

In the evening, angered by the attacks, the Cameroonian army stormed Djibrilli locality and killed dozens of suspected Boko Haram members.

Boko Haram has stepped up attacks in Cameroon and Nigeria in recent weeks, killing hundreds of people, burning women and children alive and sending many away from their homes even as the Nigerian government claimed that the terrorists have been decimated.

SimonAtebaNews will bring details as they unfold.
