Boko Haram abducts wife of Cameroon's vice PM

The wife of Cameroon's vice prime minister was kidnapped and at least three people killed in an attack by Boko Haram militants on the vice prime minister's home in the northern town of Kolofata today, Cameroon's information minister and government spokesman said.

A local religious leader, or lamido, named Seini Boukar Lamine, was also kidnapped, in a separate attack on his home.

"I can confirm that the home of Vice Prime Minister Amadou Ali in Kolofata came under a savage attack from Boko Haram militants," Issa Tchiroma said.

"They unfortunately took away his wife. They also attacked the lamido's residence and he was also kidnapped," he said, adding that at least three people were killed in the attack.
