NO fewer than 14 people, including eight children, were killed on Friday after a female suicide bomber blew herself up in an attack in a village in northern Cameroon.

Witnesses blamed the attack in Mozogo in the Mayo Tsanaga area on the terror sect, Boko Haram.

A woman and her three children were among the dead.

The other victims were identified as farmers, the young suicide bomber, and a Boko Haram terrorist.

Two people were said to be seriously injured.

“Boko Haram terrorists stormed the village, firing shots in the air. Villagers fled to a park, where Boko Haram fighters brought a girl strapped with explosives,” Midjiyawa Bakari, governor of the Far North Region, said.

The attack came 48 hours after bombs allegedly planted by separatist fighters killed four soldiers and a female journalist on a road near the English-speaking northwestern town of Mbengwi.

Officials ordered the military to hunt down the suspects.

Deben Tchoffo, governor of Cameroon’s North West region, said roadside bombs exploded at about 1 am on Wednesday near a convoy of government officials being escorted by the military.

Tchoffo says the delegation was returning to the town of Mbengwi from the Njikwa and Andeck districts, where the officials went to officially install administrators recently appointed by President Paul Biya.

Tchoffo said the attack was carried out with improvised explosive devices planted by separatist fighters on a road near the English-speaking northwestern town of Mbengwi. He said the three people injured were government officials. Their injuries were classified as life threatening and they were rushed to hospitals.
