` Cameroon Deploys One Thousand Troops and Armoured Vehicles to Nigerian Border Region ‘

#AceWorldNews – YAOUNDE – May 27 – Cameroon has deployed some 1,000 troops and armoured vehicles to its border region with Nigeria to counter a rising threat from Boko Haram Islamist militants.

“Their mission will be to carry out reconnaissance and be ready to respond with enough fire power,” Reuters quoted the Central African nation’s defence ministry spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Didier Badjeck, as saying on Tuesday.

Boko Haram has carried out attacks in northern Cameroon and is suspected of attacking a Chinese workers camp there this month.
