Two farmers and a leader of a vigilante group were killed by the terror group Boko Haram late Tuesday in Cameroon’s troubled Far North region, according to several security sources.
The leader of the vigilante group was shot dead in Goldavi while the two farmers were kidnapped and later killed in Gouzoudou locality.
The militants also stole “lots of cattle” from villagers, local officials said.
Increased Boko Haram attacks in the remote areas of the region has seen an exodus of villagers in recent days according to local humanitarian workers.
More than 2,000 people have been killed since Boko Haram launched attacks in the Far North region since 2014, according to security reports. Enditem
