Cameroon, under the attack of Boko Haram: The jihadists are like the beste of the Apocalypse from so many heads
the ROME - "Boko Haram is like the beasts of the book of Revelation as a Hydra with very many heads. As soon as he cuts one, it will grow back immediately another." So, bishop Bruno Ateba, bishop of Maroua-Mokolo in the north of Cameroon, describes to Aid to the Church in need, the impotence of the local populations in the face of apparent invincibility of the terrorist group of islamic matrix, which in the past few years has crossed the boundaries of Nigeria and is terrorizing the neighboring Countries, as Cameroon, Niger and Chad.

That video that shows the killing brutal 10 christians. "Not a day goes by without news of new attacks and incursions by the terrorists from the border between Cameroon and Nigeria – continues the prelate - The kidnappings and executions of the farmers have led to a veritable reign of terror". The fear of the local populations, and of christians in particular, became more acute after the dissemination of the video of the brutal killing of 10 christians from that part of the Province of West Africa of the Islamic State (Iswap), a branch departing from Boko Haram in 2016. "After the spread of the video, in a time when people thought that the terrorist group had been completely eradicated, the horror re-emerged in the north of Cameroon – said bishop Ateba - In my diocese, there have been 13 attacks in the last few weeks. A church has been burned on the day of the Epiphany. We are still investigating, but the evidence indicates that it was a terrorist attack".

the flight of The people from the devastated village. Also some of the villages in cameroon close to the border of nigeria have been destroyed, as reported in the last few days to ACS monsignor Barthélemy Yaouda Hourgo, bishop of Yaouga. "Bablim, my native village, no longer exists – said the bishop - The terrorists have killed a young man of my family, and have completely devastated the whole village, including the house in which I was born. All, except the sick and the elderly, were forced to flee in the nearby town of Mora, which is 17 km away." Monsignor Hourgo invites us in a particular way to pray for the many displaced persons who, in the coldest period of the year for the fault of the terrorists no longer have a house in which to shelter.

Hundreds of thousands of displaced persons caused by the Boko Haram. Would be, in fact, over 270 thousand of the cameroonian people displaced by the violence of Boko Haram, which in 2019 would have committed more than 100 attacks in the Country, killing over a hundred civilians. And unfortunately, the terrorists can always find it easier to recruit new staff, as noted by bishop Ateba. "The poverty, the insecurity and the lack of future prospects makes our kids targets that are easy to manipulate for the jihadists".
