The Idagodja military post in Tourou, department of Mayo Tsanaga, sustained an attack this morning around 3:00 a.m. According to a security source contacted by SBBC, the attack carried out by Boko Haram assailants left one dead [a soldier of the 43rd Motorized Infantry Brigade], one missing, one seriously wounded and 11 slightly wounded.
Two of the assailants were killed but the remaining convoy reportedly made away with military equipment.
Although weakened, the Islamist sect Boko Haram is still active in Cameroon. After the death of its leader Aboubakar Shekau in May 2021, the group fell under the banner of the fratricidal war, the Nigerian insurgents reorganized themselves under the banner of the Islamic State in West Africa. After that reorganization, they hattacked several military targets.
