Boko Haram Issue

Militant group Boko Haram released two Italian priests and a Canadian nun it abducted in northern Cameroon in April.

Priests Giampaolo Marta and Gianantonio Allegri and nun Gilberte Bussier, who had been kidnapped from their parish in Tcherein Cameroon’s Far North region on April 4, were released near the Nigerian border. Security forces escorted them to the military base in Maroua, from where they were flown on board a military aircraft to the capital, Yaounde.

Earlier, suspected Boko Haram militants have abducted more than 60 women and girls, some as young as three, in the latest kidnappings in northeast Nigeria and over two months since more than 200 schoolgirls were seized.

Analysts said the kidnapping, which happened during a raid on Kummabza village in the Damboa district of Borno state, could be an attempt by the Islamist group to refocus attention on its demands for the release of militant fighters.

Boko Haram has indicated that it would be willing to release the 219 schoolgirls that it has held hostage since April 14 in exchange for the freedom of its brothers in arms currently held in Nigerian jails. Nigeria initially refused to sanction any deal but efforts have since been made to open talks with the group, with a possible prisoner swap part of discussions. Read More…
