A Cameroon army vessel carrying 37 soldiers from the elite Rapid Intervention Brigade capsized Sunday off the country's southwestern coast.

"Following regular interception of Boko Haram terrorists su*cide bombers by troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE and the serial failures that have trailed their su*cide bomb attacks, recent developments indicate that the terrorist group is now exploiting deceptive tactics to lure unsuspecting members of the public to target areas before detonating their bomb in order to attain maximum casualty", a statement by Nwachukwu obtained by NAIJ.com said.

The Presidency said three soldiers were rescued, but 34 passengers are still unaccounted for. Besides troops, the boat was also transporting equipment for construction work at a military base on the Bakassi Peninsula, where the Brigade has helped to bring security after previous spate of hostage-takings.

"Another antic is by abducting children on errands, strap them with Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) vests and send them back home, where the bomb is set to detonate and kill members of the household", he said.
