The Islamic Insurgents, Boko Haram that have been attacking the Nigerian innocent citizens had moved its attack to Cameroon with the insurgents trying to smuggle the girls that were kidnapped, but the Cameroonian military won't allow the insurgents as they keep exchanging gun shot every day at the Nigerian-Cameroonian border.
Things seem to take a twist today as Boko Haram insurgents storms the house of the Vice prime minister of Cameroon, Vice Prime Minister Amadou Ali in Kolofata as he celebrates the Ramadan feast with the family.
Confirming the news to Reuters by telephone, Issa Tchiroma said
I can confirm that the home of Vice Prime Minister Amadou Ali in Kolofata came under a savage attack from Boko Haram militants. They, unfortunately, took away his wife. They also attacked the Lamido's residence, and he was also kidnapped
Also the leader of a religious community, also called a Lamido, Seini Boukar Lamine was also kidnapped in the in a separate attack in his home.The Boko Haram members exchanged gun shoot out after the kidnapping with the Cameroonian soldier and at least 3 people have been confirmed dead.
Colonel Felix Nji Formekong, he second commander of Cameroon's third inter-army military region (RMIA3) based in the regional headquarters of Maroua, said
The situation is very critical here now, and as I am talking to you, the Boko Haram elements are still in Kolofata town in a clash with our soldiers.
Last week, more than 22 suspected members of Boko Haram were sent to 10-20 years prison sentences. At the moment, it's not known if this had triggered their action to attack the Lamido and the Vice prime minister wife as this seems to be the modus operandi of the militants while in Nigeria.
