Boko Haram blows up bridge linking Nigeria and Cameroun
The Boko Haram on Thursday took a strategic step to frustrate Nigerian security forces from crossing over to Cameroun to hunt its operatives down by bombing the sole bridge linking Borno State, Nigeria and Cameroun.
The bridge is said to be located at the border town of Gamboru, where the insurgents killed over 100 persons and destroyed buildings on Monday.
Reports quote residents of Gamboru as saying that the development had cut off some of their relatives from Nigeria and left them stranded in Cameroun.
According to a report, the way out for travellers to and from Gamboru, is to go into Banki near Bama local government area of Borno into Cameroon and later enter Gamboru from another Cameroonian village.
It was also reported that several persons are still trapped under rubbles following the attack.
