Cameroon Separatist Fighters, Invade Nigeria, Kill 20

Pro-independence movement fighters from Cameroon, popularly known as Amba Boys have killed at least 20 people in a community in Nigeria. "Ambazonian militants regularly saunter into the Boki, where there are many Cameroonians, to wreak havoc or unwind," A former Nigerian lawmaker said and added that the Cameroonian separatists razed down the village.

Chief Cletus Obun, who is a former member of the Cross River House of Assembly and an aspirant of the House of Reps for the Boki/Ikom federal constituency said the Ambazonian soldiers crossed into the Nigerian community near Bashu in the Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State to attack their compatriots who fled and refused to join them to intensify the fight against President Paul Biya's government. He said the remaining Cameroonians who also speak the Bokye language of Boki people have now flooded the Bashu community, not far from Danare, where Nigerian troops have a small camp.

The incident comes a few months after Nigerian Senate Deputy Minority Leader, Emmanuel Bwacha alleged that Cameroonian militants invaded the Manga community in Taraba State, gunning down the village head and some residents of the community.
