Boko Haram insurgents have killed seven people in Dogba village, Far North Region, Cameroon. The attacked by Boko Haram also witnessed the assassination of the head of Mangrave neighbourhood, Amadou Allilou.
According to Mustafa Buker a relative to Amadou Allilou, the insurgents storm the area at 2am on several front with guns and machetes.
They began attacks in the room of the eldest son of Amdaou Alilou, who was forced to show the room of his father. He was brutally beheaded after offering a sum of 2.5 million to the terrorists to spare his live and that of his family.
In a swift offensive response by the village vigilante groups, six of the Boko Haram Militant were killed with three captured.
Security sources say, the attack on Mangrave was to settle scores with Amadou Allilou, given that he played a vital rule over the years in sabotaging and denouncing Boko Haram insurgents.
According to the Governor of the Far North Region, Midjiyawa Bakary “he use to give us information about the operations of the Boko Haram insurgents”.
The Governor equally congratulated the vigilante group for the offensive attack killing six and capturing 3 of the insurgents.
Mr Midjiyawa Bakary extended condolences and word of consolation from the Head of State Paul Biya to the bereaved families. He also offered the sum of 500000 CFA FRS to the vigilante group thanking them for their collaboration.
The population of that village was in total dismay, as cries of men, women and children could be heard from every angle mourning their loves ones.
