Members of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram have again killed a police constable in the Far North Region. The Islamist sect Boko Haram has continued its attack in Cameroon.
On Friday July 18 morning at about 12 noon when Muslims were preparing to close shop for the Friday prayer, the members of the sect stormed the town of Amchide. With their bikes, they toured the city by firing several shots into the air another reports say. The attackers took advantage of the disarray to loot shops in the Amchide market. The armed gang then headed to the police station at Nariki where they opened fire on the policemen who were on duty. Police Constable Messi Seraphim died following multiple bullets received from these attackers. His colleague, the detective Ombe Serge was injured and rushed to the military hospital in Maroua. This umpteenth attacks by members of Boko Haram on security services in Cameroon gives the impression that the sect is short of weapons and ammunition for its various operations in Nigeria and is trying to refuel in police and gendarmerie stations in Cameroon.
Lately, the Nigerian terrorist group attacked a police station in the Northern Region of Cameroon barely two days after the gendarmerie Brigade at Bonderi (Mora) was attacked. Several weapons and ammunitions were allegedly taken away by the attackers after wounding the policeman who was on guard.
