Issa Tchiroma Bakary, Cameroon Minister of Communication has debunked allegations that members of the Boko Haram sects are using Cameroon as a base to destabilize other countries. While refuting the allegation, Issa Tchiroma Bakary wondered whether it is tenable that the insurgents could be running to hide in Cameroon and at the same time carrying on attacks. In a briefing with the Press today March 4, 2014 in Yaounde, Communication Minister also disclosed that during the confrontation of last Sunday in the Northern Region of Cameroon, a member of the Boko Haram sect was killed as well as one Cameroonian soldier. According to the Communication Minister, the insurgence suffered great damages. He used the opportunity to congratulate Cameroonians soldiers for their steadfastness and mark of patriotism in defending the territorial integrity of Cameroon. Concerning the number of people that lost their lives during the confrontation between members of the Boko Haram sect and Cameroon soldiers, a school of thought holds that there is a consistent-inconsistency in the information given that RFI earlier announced today morning that 7 deaths were recorded, six on the side of the insurgents and on the side of the Cameroon army.
