The Nigerian Islamic sect, Boko Haram committed carnage on Wednesday, July 12, and Thursday, July 13, 2017 in Waza, a locality in the Logone-et-Chari Division, Far North Region which is close to the border with Nigeria.
The regime in Yaoundé has not established the circumstances of these suicide bombings but what we do know from security agents operating in the area is that the first provisional record of the terrorist attack reported 9 deaths.
Latest figures published by Guibai Gatama, the most reliable journalist covering the Boko Haram conflict in the Far North revealed that the death toll has increased to 14 including 32 injured persons.
Boko Haram is yet to claim responsibility for the murderous attack. However, Cameroon government officials have blamed the attacks on the group and a statement to that effect will be made public by the so-called government spokesman and minister of communication, Issa Tchiroma Bakary who returned to Yaounde late yesterday from a medical trip to Europe.
