At least three people, have been killed in an alleged Boko Haram attack near a mosque in Kerawa, a city in Cameroon’s Far North region this Friday, Anadolu Agency website reports.

The website quotes Mohamed Bamsi, an Imam of the mosque, who said the bombers blew themselves up when they noticed that members of a vigilance committee had spotted them near the Kerawa mosque.

“The bombers died in the explosion, while a faithful, who was about to enter the mosque, was also killed,” Bamsi added.

Meanwhile, a military officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to media, said security forces were expecting an attack from Boko Haram. “There is at least one attack perpetrated by Boko Haram in the region every Friday. So this Friday should not be the exception,” he added.

Going by reports, more than 20 civilians have been killed in Boko Haram attacks between January and June 2017 in Cameroon’s Far North region.  The UN reports of 26 million people being affected by the terrorist and more than 2.6 million displaced.
