Boko Haram leader threatens Cameroon in YouTube video

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has threatened Cameroon in a video message on YouTube, warning that the same fate would befall the country as neighbouring Nigeria.The video, which was posted on January 5, is directly addressed to Cameroon`s President Paul Biya after repeated fighting between militants and troops in the country`s far north.”Oh Paul Biya, if you don`t stop this, your evil plot, you will taste what has befallen Nigeria… Your troops cannot do anything to us,” Shekau said in Arabic.

Boko Haram fighters had in the past launched attacks on northeastern Nigeria from bases inside Cameroon but recent months have seen an increase in strikes within the country.The attacks have taken a similar form to those in Nigeria from hit-and-run raids to kidnappings.Boko Haram, which began its violent insurgency in 2009, has taken over swathes of territory in three northeastern Nigerian states, and declared some towns as part of its Islamic caliphate.Last weekend, fighters captured the key town of Baga and the headquarters of the Multinational Joint Task Force in the Lake Chad area, tightening its control of the remote state of Borno.
