Boko Haram Kills 8, Kidnaps Many After Reading Names From Hit List In Cameroon

 Residents in northern Cameroon say suspected Boko Haram fighters have killed eight people and kidnapped an unknown number of others for collaborating with Cameroon security forces in the nation’s border village of Aisaharde near a military base in Mora.

Pia Robert, a resident of Aisaharde village, near a military base in Mora, said in a telephone interview that about 30 assailants stormed the village early on Thursday and moved from door to door reading the names of people from a list. He said when someone’s name was read, he was accused of collaborating with Cameroonian soldiers and immediately killed or taken away.

He said three women and five men were slaughtered and their houses were burnt. He added that Cameroon soldiers arrived three hours after the incident, saw the corpses and started investigations, but it is still early to say how many were kidnapped.

Midjiyawa Bakary, the governor of Far North Cameroon, confirmed the attack, saying a few houses were burnt and the military is combing the hills on the border with Nigeria to track the assailants.
