Nigerian Security Forces Locate 12 Boko Haram Hide Outs in Camerron
The Nigerian armed forces have located about a dozen hideouts of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram, in neighbouring Cameroon.
Consequently, the Federal Government is mounting pressure on the neighbouring country for collaboration in routing the insurgents.
President Goodluck Jonathan and President Paul Biya are already in talks on how to deal with the security challenge, authoritative sources said yesterday in Abuja.
Nigeria is said to have tabled four conditions before Cameroon for its consideration on the issue.
A military source said that many Boko Haram leaders and field commanders have relocated to Cameroon from where they direct operations in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states, the latest being Sunday’s massacre of about 50 students of Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe State and Wednesday’s attack in Madagali and Michika Local Government areas of Adamawa State.
The source said: “We have been able to establish that Boko Haram now operates fully from Cameroon where they have more than a dozen of deadly bases. Most of their wanted leaders live in havens in the Francophone country.
“The sad aspect is that they have been operating with impunity in Cameroon. We do not know why they enjoy such latitude.
“We have done reconnaissance which confirmed that the sect has been coming in and out of Cameroon to wreak havoc on innocent villages and communities in Nigeria.”
The Federal Government, the source said, has been liaising with the Cameroonian government although it is yet to get a decisive response.
