A suicide bomber has blown himself up in Cameroon, killing himself and no one else, but passing another message that the war against the Boko Haram insurgency may take time to end.
Cameroonian newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel, which has been reporting virtually daily attacks by Boko Haram in Cameroon, said the suicide bombing took place in Magdeme in the country’s far north, not that far from the border with its eastern neighbour, Nigeria.
That attack came only two days after a Cameroonian soldier who was in a joint military patrol with the Nigerian army died in the Borno state locality of Kumshe.
He was killed when his vehicle climbed a landmine planted by the “godless, mindless” militants.
In recent weeks, several attacks have occurred in Nigeria and Cameroon and several troops have been killed, an indication that the regional war against Boko Haram is far from over.
