Suspected Boko Haram insurgents have reportedly killed over 30 Cameroonian villagers, a security official disclosed yesterday.
A regional governor, Mijiyawa Bakary, told the local by phone that the estimated 30 people killed were civilians.
“We do not yet have all the facts, but our divisional officers and security officials are filling us in,” Bakary said.
The attack took place at Mbaljuel village in northern Cameroon, just a few kilometres from Cameroon’s border with Nigeria, L’Oeil du Sahel newspaper said.
The insurgents also carried out a similar attack along the Waza-Mora highway on Friday, killing one Cameroonian soldier.
