Cameroon Sentences 89 Boko Haram Members To Death

Cameroun has sentenced 89 members of the Boko Haram terrorist group to death over terror charges.

In contrast, Nigeria where the deadly insurgency started and has recorded tens of thousands of deaths caused by the violent sect, has only convicted a handful of terrorists to prison terms.

Rather than convicting terrorists, who have been caught and detained in special prison facilities in mainly northern Nigeria, the federal government has been expending huge resources on their rehabilitation.

According to a BBC report, a Camerounian military court tried the insurgents over their roles in several attacks in the northern part of the country which borders Nigeria. Since 2009 when Boko Haram launched its campaign of violence, Cameroun has been its next target after Nigeria.
