Boko Haram Frees wife of Cameroonian Deputy Prime Minister after Heavy Payment

Boko Haram militants have released the wife of Cameroonian Vice Prime Minister Amadou Ali, ten Chinese workers and district heads kidnapped a few months ago.

The kidnap victims were released on Thursday after intense tripartite negotiations involving Cameroon, Chinese interests, and representatives of the Islamist group.

SaharaReporters confirmed that Mrs. Ali, who was abducted by the militants in July, had arrived in Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon, following her release.

A source in Cameroon disclosed that a hefty ransom was paid to the Boko Haram terrorists.

Our Cameroonian sources also disclosed that Boko Haram militants also released at least 10 Chinese workers abducted in Cameroon as well as a district head and his children.

Mrs. Ali was abducted in July in Kolofata, a town in the far north region of Cameroon. The terrorist group killed three persons in the operation to abduct the wife of such a major Cameroonian government official.

Although the Cameroonian government had given the impression that the Vice Prime Minister's wife had been rescued by the country's military, the woman remained in captivity until Thursday.

Cameroonian government officials are expected to address the media tomorrow regarding the release of Mrs. Ali and several other victims of abduction.
