Suicide Bomb Attack Put To Death 28, Injured Dozens in Cameroon

According to the reporters, not less than twenty eight people had lost their lives when the suicide bombers targeted the town in northern Cameroon on Monday. This attack is said to be one of the most worst attacks yet in the Central African nation as it struggles to contain an overflow of violence blamed on Nigeria`s Boko Haram.

Also at least 65 others had been injured in the deadly bomb attack. All the victims were been sent to the nearby hospitals.

As per state owned radio and local officials, the explosion took place and struck a busy market and entrances to the town of Bodo, which borders the Islamist insurgency`s strongholds in the north eastern Nigeria.

At present the situation is stable and the security officers are in place, as reported by an officer who asked for anonymity as he was not permitted to provide any information to the media.

As said by a Cameroon troop commander, Gen. Jacob Kodji, “We have deployed soldiers to the area to assist the local defense group because we are informed a few fighters may have escorted them, {the bombers} to Cameroon from Nigeria.”
