“You Are Dead, You Are a Coward”, Group Tells Shekau

Thousands of people took to the streets of Cameroon’s capital on Saturday to denounce Boko Haram’s bloody insurgency and call for the killing of the group’s leader Abubakar Shekau.

“This march symbolises Cameroon’s unity against Boko Haram,” the country’s Labour Minister Gregoire Owona told marchers in Yaounde, before shouting “Shekau!” In response, the crowd which organisers said numbered 10,000-15,000, chanted: “You are dead, you are a coward.”

Several ministers led the vocal, but peaceful march, which saw protestors waving the flags of Cameroon, Chad and Nigeria.

“It was important to be here for me, for my brothers who are on the front, for my country,” said marcher Philomene Ekombo, a Cameroonian flag in hand.
