Several security meetings are being held in Yaounde, Cameroon’s capital following threats of terror attacks from Boko Haram.
Joseph Beti Assomo, Minister of Defence yesterday March 3, sent out a note to top ranking officials of the ministry including Jean Baptiste Bokam, Secretary of State in charge of the National Gendarmerie, Rene Claude Meka, Army Chief of Staff, among others, with instructions on how to prevent such an attack.
The minister’s orders included the deployment of foot soldiers and motorized troops for surveillance at ministerial buildings in the city center and places hosting public gatherings. He also urged all soldiers to improve their level of vigilance.
Another move which the minister suggested could avert any possible attack was that the army infiltrates a dreaded Muslim neighborhood in Yaounde known as Briqueterie.
BaretaNews is confident that Cameroun muslims are just like any other Cameroonian, peaceful and loving. The government should not target muslim neigbourhoods.
