Boko Haram Attacks the Army Barack Killing Atleast 8 Soldiers.

At least eight Cameroon soldiers were killed in an attack by Boko Haram. This is as per the report given by the governor of the region where the incident occurred.

The heavily armed Boko Haram fighters "arrived at around four o'clock in the morning on six vehicles", the governor of the Far North Region, Bakari Midjiyawa, told CRTV television.

"We deplore the deaths of our six soldiers, who died in action, and four more were injured."

The attack occurred in Sagme, a few kilometres from the border of Nigeria, where Boko Haram originates.

According to the official police report which has been confirmed by several local sources, 8 soldiers were killed on the spot.

Boko Haram is a strong powerful independent body. They have killed more than 36,000 people since 2009 and driven almost two million people from their homes in northeastern Nigeria.

In addition, they have also frequently kidnapped civilians, particularly women and children from those regions.
