April 19, 2015 – Boko Haram Beheads 19 In Bia Village, Cameroon
At least 19 people died on Thursday when Nigeria-based Boko Haram militants crossed into a village which borders Lake Chad.
Bia, a village previously used as a recruiting ground for Boko Haram militants was set on fire by the dreaded militants who decapitated most of their victims.
A security source who requested anonymity said security forces were slow to react to the raid on Bia, located in an area with several military bases.
“We noted a late response by our forces, many huts were burned down,”, the source said.
