The Islamic sect, Boko Haram has floated an FM radio station, which it plans to use in furthering its terrorist acts, and its demand for an Islamic State.
According to a report monitored on the Hausa service of the Voice of America, VoA, on Thursday, the sect has been broadcasting on 96.8 frequency modulation (fm).
Already, residents in Tolkomari, which is in the far northern part of Cameroon, have confirmed receiving broadcast messages from the sect via the new radio station.
According to the VoA report, the station broadcast mainly propaganda materials to counter media reports of victories by troops from Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon and Niger Republic against the Boko Haram militants.
The report said the Cameroonian government is worried by the new development and has commenced investigations towards locating the radio station, which is said to be on the Nigeria-Cameroun border.
This is coming at a time the Nigerian Army on daily basis has continued to claim victories against the sect in the war against insurgency in the North East.
