(Translated from French)
When we went to press yesterday ,
Wednesday, January 15, 2014 , we
learnt through reliable sources of an air attack by elements of the Nigerian armed forces against the
followers of the Islamic sect which led to a chase.
According to reports , the Nigerian
Army helicopter fought a battle with sectarian Boko Haram who were forced to flee their Nigerian roots to Cameroon. Meanwhile ,
they find refuge in the distance from the town of Limani in the Logone and Chari region of the Far North. There would have been some subsequent bombing. No
source could indicate damage caused by these targeted strikes (? ) Therefore , the Messenger is not able to assess the losses.
However, other sources provide
informed that for two weeks, Nigerian planes have been flying over the territory of Cameroon by mutual agreement with the
Cameroonian authorities . For others, it is nothing . For now, no official information has filtered through from the Cameroonian authorities.
Our efforts to join the representative of the Defence Minister were unsuccessful . As a reminder, it happens more week
without Boko Haram does about her in the Far North .
This is the first family of Moulin- Fournier, who was kidnapped on
board motorcycles according to informed sources for an unknown destination . France, anxious to protect his brave children decides to use all “legal” means to release Tanguy Moulin Fournier and relatives, victims of kidnapping.
Cameroon is utilized. Elements of the national defense forces have returned to the scene to find the effect of traces of the hostages.
The “corridor diplomacy ” is also set in motion for that finish , these hostages are actually released, Friday, April 26, 2013 and then returned to their hexagonal home after a reception at the palace of the unit to the end and claps
immortalization of the last moments to Cameroon before returning to France . After three
months of captivity …
A base for terrorist …
After this settlement , languages are loosened to indicate that the regime of Paul Biya would have paid ransom demanded by the kidnappers. International Relations experts like Professor Jean Claude Shanda Tonme , supported the thesis of paying ransoms with billions . Argument previously
undermined by the Elysée and the Quai d’Orsay and not denied by Cameroonian officials.
The internationalist then indicated in the columns of your newspaper that the role of Cameroon ” is
ultimately limited to receive orders on the conduct in this case. We were almost more than passive actors , like robots guided by the real bosses . Fabius was
visiting to give orders , expedite
” A few months after the terrorist Boko Haram come charging and
attacked a missionary. The priest Georges Vandenbeusch is kidnapped and released a month and a half later, still in Cameroon. The same arguments are brought up to date before colliding . Are
there had ransoms or not? Everyone has their own analysis.
Still, that Boko Haram seems to make Cameroon one of its bases . All things Cameroonian authorities do not hear the same ear . We will return !
