Cameroon fights Boko Haram fighters; send them back into Nigeria

The Cameroon’s army has reported that it has been constantly fighting off the Boko Haram militants over the weekend. As a result, they have managed to kill 41 Islamist militants. The Nigerian Boko Haram fighters changed their strategies when they coordinated attacks on five towns and villages simultaneously. Earlier they used to perform hit and run raids on small settlements.

Boko Haram has been operating to carve out an Islamist caliphate. They are most active in the northeast Nigeria but are now spreading towards Cameroon which is alarming as the region is already unstable due to the attacks from the Islamist militants in the Sahel. Cameroon has retaliated by sending thousands of soldiers to its Far North region to fight off the militants and is also planning to launch air strikes if necessary.

The militants took control of an army camp in Achigachia after a fierce fight for a brief period of time but later withdrew as they were under huge pressure due to the air strikes carried out by Cameroon. After the incident the fighters moved back into Nigeria. The Cameroon government has not revealed the casualties as of now because they say it’s not the right time for that.
