The dreaded Islamic sect Boko Haram Monday launched an attack on a military base in the northwest Cameroonian city of Kolofata, police say.
The attack came a day after blasts struck an open market selling mobile handsets in the town of Potiskum, Yobe State, one of three Nigerian states after Adamawa and Borno that have been hit by Boko Haram.
“As soon as people heard the first gunfire they fled the city,” a police source told a news agency on Monday, adding: “The gunfire was very heavy.”
