The terrorist group is now targeting Cameroonians

BBC News - Nigeria

Suspected militants from Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram have hijacked a bus in northern Cameroon, abducting at least 20 people, residents say.

Militants reportedly seized a bus carrying market-goers and drove it toward the border with Nigeria.

Some reports put the total number kidnapped in Cameroon as high as 30.

Boko Haram has escalated its attacks outside Nigeria in recent weeks, targeting neighbouring Cameroon and Niger.

The insurgency has forced a postponement of Nigeria's presidential and parliamentary elections from 14 February to 28 March.

The bus was seized near the border area of Koza and driven towards the Nigerian border 18km (11 miles) away, a resident told the Associated Press news agency.

Their new goal is to join ISIS and basically mimic their atrocities. Boko Haram merging with such an evil group will put the rest of the international community on their toes. Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad are currently in the worst possible conditions because of Boko Haram. Government troops from all affected countries are fighting back but it seems their efforts could only hold off the enemy rather than annihilate them.
