In recent years the Islamist group Boko Haram has waged a series of attacks in northern Cameroon. In predominantly Muslim parts of the country, radicalization is setting in. Church activities have been hindered or disturbed in areas where Boko Haram has been active.
Due to the displacement of people, churches have not been able to function normally in those parts of the country. In other areas, government security injunctions have set heavy restrictions on church activities.
