A government official in Cameroon has taken up arms against Boko Haram following a terror attack in his locality.

Local newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel, reported early Sunday that the head of the Mayo-Moskota sub-division in the Mayo-Tsanaga division, Cameroon’s far north, joined those fighting against Boko Haram terrorists following an attack in Zeleved locality.


Pictures of the government official holding a gun and wearing a bulletproof vest were taken in Mozogo locality, just hours after the Boko Haram attack in Zeleved, L’Oeil du Sahel said.

It was not clear whether the government official has military training.
