Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members, Monday, attacked a Cameroon Gendarmes barracks and killed two security men in a gun duel in the Northern part of the country.
According to the reports, the country’s military are currently engaged in a gun battle with the insurgents operating around its border with Nigeria.
Border villages in Cameroon’s north had been deserted following heavy fighting between the Nigerian army and the Islamist militant group Boko Haram in Banki, Borno state. About 30 Cameroonians and Nigerians were said to have been wounded in the attacks, and five are feared dead. The heavy firing between the Nigerian army and Boko Haram created panic in Cameroonian border villages, especially Amchide.
