BOKO Haram, the Nigerian Islamist militant group, are suspected to be responsible for a suicide bombing which has killed 10 people in Cameroon on Saturday.
An army commander from the Nigue, a village near the town of Fotokol, said “The initial figures speak of 10 dead including the suicide bombers and around a dozen wounded.”
L’Oeil du Sahel, a local online publication in the Far North of Cameroon, reported that at least four suicide bombers were involved in the attack.
Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for numerous attacks in Cameroon, Nigeria, Chad and Niger this year.
The Far North region of Cameroon is a disadvantaged area and the militants were stationed there until last year when the government began to target the group.
