US to support Cameroon military in Boko Haram fight

The United States will help Cameroon’s army secure equipment to fight Boko Haram, its embassy in Cameroon said on Wednesday, as it deepens its commitment to countering the jihadist group. Boko Haram militants have killed and kidnapped thousands in a six-year insurgency in Nigeria and are stepping up cross-border attacks on neighbours despite a major regional offensive against them. “My government is working on a logistic pipeline of material that will enhance Cameroon’s ability to defend itself from Boko Haram,” US ambassador to Cameroon Michael Stephen Hoza said in a notice published in a local paper on Wednesday.
