Fighting Boko Haram: Landmine kills Cameroonian soldier in Kumshe area of Borno state, Nigeria

A Cameroonian soldier has been killed in Kumshe area of Borno state, Nigeria, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Cameroonian newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel, said the soldier was killed when a security vehicle he was travelling in climbed a landmine planted by Boko Haram in Kumshe.

Cameroon and Nigeria have been fighting Boko Haram in the Sambisa forest for several years now.


Boko Haram days ago killed at least seven Nigerian soldiers and injured about 19 others following an ambush in Borno state.

The latest deaths among Nigerian and Cameroonian soldiers, many argue, are an indication that the terrorists are far from being defeated as repeatedly claimed by Nigeria.
