The Cameroonian army on Sunday morning repelled a major Boko Haram attack on Kerawa, the district of Kolofata, in the country’s far north region, but many houses were set on fire by the terrorists in the nearby village of Zigué, a report said.

Local newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel, quoting sources, said the militants set houses on fire in Zigue and destroyed a cell tower there, a cellular telephone site where antennae and electronic communications equipment are placed.

On Friday night, Aïssa-Hardé health centre in the district of Mora, also in the country’s far north region, was attacked by Boko Haram and medication and food looted by the terrorists.

The Boko Haram battle seems to have shifted to Kerawa. The locality is divided into Kerawa Nigeria and Kerawa Cameroon. The locality fell to Boko Haram members for some hours about two weeks ago and since then, attacks have multiplied  there.

Boko Haram has killed more than 24, 000 people since it began its insurgency in 2009 and has widened attacks beyond the Nigerian borders.

About 500 civilians have been killed in Cameroon between November last year and this year, and about 4000 people have been murdered in Nigeria this year alone.

President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to crush the terrorists but with attacks  continuing and barbarism increasing, many are expressing doubts.
