Though the Church is opposed to war and advocates prayer and dialogue as acceptable ways for resolving conflict, Cameroon has officially declared war against the terrorist group, Boko Haram. Among the soldiers engaged in the war against the terrorist group are Catholics, so too are Catholics among the victims of the group’s atrocities. What should be the State’s response to Boko Haram? Should it only rely on prayer and dialogue with the nebulous group? But are there any grounds on which the Church encourages a Just War?
