About 50 elements of the Boko Haram islamist sect are reported to have dropped their arms and surrendered themselves to vigilante groups in Kolofata, a locality in the Far North region of Cameroon precisely in the Mayo-Sava Division, border with neighboring Nigeria.
The close to 50 fighters are said to have surrendered in two rounds Sunday July 18.
Authorities in the region are yet to issue a statement on this.
