Three soldiers of the Cameroonian army died Tuesday, December 16, 2014 in the locality of Zelevet, border town with Nigeria.

According to security sources, the mine exploded as troops of the 42nd motorized infantry battalion in a pick-up at Zelevet were driving for patrol in Mora. The vehicle carrying the soldiers at the front was destroyed by the explosion of the mine.

The same source indicates that two other soldiers who were in the vehicle were seriously injured while three of their comrades died.

The explosion on Tuesday came three days after that of Achigachia where three other soldiers from 42nd BIM were killed and their pick-up completely destroyed.

These outlaws of the Boko Haram sect would certainly have opted to undermine the district Mayo Moskota and continue thier attacks which the Cameroonian defense forces have always responded in the strongest terms.

To find a solution to this cowardice and barbarity of Boko Haram fighters, the Cameroonian army must quickly bring mine detectors that will precede the patrol vehicles and convoy. They should also send de-miners on the ground because the information available says several mines were laid by night in the villages of Zelevet and Krawa Mafa.

Since June 2013, thousands of Nigerians consisting mostly women and children moved into villages of Zelevet, Krawa, Mafa in the borough of Moskota Mayo, Mayo-Tsanaga department.

The Nigerian nationals entered the villages to find the tranquility, following the repeated assaults of the Islamist sect Boko Haram in the town of Bama in Nigeria.

Sources say that it was after the massacres of their pastors and evangelists that the people of Bama packed up to Cameroon.
