Far North: Confrontation Between Chadians And Cameroonians Leaves Many Injured, Property Destroyed

Following a clash between Chadians and Cameroonians in Gobo, a locality in Mayo Danay Division, many have been left seriously injured with huge property damage recorded.

MMI reports that some inhabitants of Gantchedem a border village in Chad, attacked Gobo after blaming the residents of theft.

It is believed that a large number of cattle was hijacked by inhabitants of Gobo and transported over to Cameroon.

This reportedly led to a huge conflict between the two localities that resulted in houses set ablaze. Residents were equally molested with many hospitalized at the integrated health center of the locality and loss of several livestock.

A resident of Gobo laments: “I’m speechless this shouldn’t happen between us brothers from two neighboring countries.”

Reports on ground have it that over a dozen people sustained serious injuries, more 300 left homeless and documents razed to ashes.

Meanwhile the Senior Divisional Officer of Mayo Danay will visit the scene to assess the casualties inflicted, while awaiting investigations.
