According to Daily Mail, numerous villages in the area were cleared out and schools torched by the terrorists even despite the presence of elite troops of Battalion D’Intervention Rapide (B.I.R).
Speaking with Sky News, residents said Boko Haram raided villages during the daytime to snatch boys.
One of the boys narrated how he refused to join the terrorists, causing substantial tension, however he managed to escape from them.
While Nigeria accuses Cameroon of being unable to prevent the insurgents from crossing the border and thus letting them hide in the neighbouring country, the spokesperson of Cameroon’s Defence Ministry Lieutenant Colonel Badjeck claims speaking with Sky News:
“They [Boko Haram] are not in Cameroon. Why would we allow that? This is bad for Cameroon. We are suffering too at the hands of Boko Haram.”
It would be recalled that more than two months have passed since the abduction of over 250 Chibok school girls. The feared sect claimed responsibility for the kidnap 3 weeks later stating that they would sell the girls in the market.
Numerous experts alleged that the students might have been splitt into groups and relocated to the neighbouring countries. Later Cameroon and Chad claimed they might block the main routes said to be used by insurgents.
Despite the international support in the find-and-rescue operation, the abduction victims still remain in captivity.
