19 KILLED IN BOKO HARAM ATTACK

At least 19 people were killed when Boko Haram gunmen raided Bia village in Cameroon’s Far North Region on the night of 16 April. Many of the victims were reportedly beheaded during the attack on the village located on the shores of Lake Chad. The insurgents have carried out several attacks on Cameroonian territory.

Such cross-border raids prompted Nigeria’s neighbours earlier this year to revamp a regional counter-insurgency force that has driven Boko Haram out of several towns and villages in north-eastern Nigeria.
