Mohamed Ibn Chambas, the UN secretary-general’s special representative for West Africa, said in a statement on Wednesday that the attack took place near Kontcha, Cameroon.
The contractor’s nationality was not released.
Three Nigerians and one Cameroonian also were killed in the Tuesday afternoon attack.
