Suspected Boko Haram militants have reportedly abducted a Cameroonian businessman, Alhadji Moussa and several of his family members.
The incident happened on Wednesday morning in Karenan (far north of Cameroon). They were to an unknown destination, security sources told APA.
The attackers, apparently from neighbouring Nigeria and wearing uniforms of the African Union’s Joint Multinational Force (FMM), according to eyewitnesses broke into the businessman’s home, after arriving on board two all-terrain vehicles of the Cameroonian army.
Their well-coordinated assault lasted only a few minutes. No claims have so far been made, and a manhunt has been launched by the army to find the hostages, whose number was not specified.
