Militant offensive has forced thousands of civilians to flee Nigeria into neighbouring Cameroon. Subsequently, militants have intensified their attacks in Cameroon’s villages and towns. As in Nigeria, Christian populations in Cameroon are particularly targeted.
This is particularly true of the village of Cherif Moussary, where a church was ransacked and the residence of the pastor burned down. Many Christian families were stripped of their properties; ‘even kitchen utensils were not spared’ local sources told World Watch Monitor.
