Thousands flee to Cameroon after Boko Haram attack in Nigeria

Nigerian soldiers patrol in the north of Borno state close to a Islamist extremist group Boko Haram former camp on June 5, 2013 near MaiduguriBoko Haram on Monday overran a border town in northeast Nigeria, forcing residents and soldiers to flee in the latest indication of the militants’ growing ability to strike at will and unchecked. The attack on Gamboru Ngala came after the town was almost entirely destroyed in a devastating assault in May that left more than 300 people dead and prompted outrage at the lack of military response. Many residents sought refuge from the latest strike across the border in the northern Cameroon town of Fotokol, where Cameroonian troop reinforcements were sent, a security service source told AFP. Nigerian soldiers were said to be among the exodus, according to locals and the Cameroon military, who said “more than 450” had fled their posts on Sunday from elsewhere in Borno state in fear of Boko Haram attacks.
