Southern Cameroons War: 3 Francophone gendarmes killed in Kembong
Three French Cameroun gendarmes have been killed in Kembong village in Eyumojock Sub constituency in Manyu today Sunday the 11th of February 2018. The three were killed as the Francophone dominated army was conducting operations following reports of “imminent attacks” by the Ambazonian Defense Force.
The so called Cameroon military spokesman Colonel Didier Badjeck confirmed the news earlier today and stated that the perpetrators of the crimes have already been arrested. On Friday, an internal memo from the Cameroon Ministry of Defense reported threats of “imminent attacks” by the Ambazonian Defense Force against “several cities” in Southern Cameroons. A curfew has been introduced in the territory.
Since the beginning of the Ambazonian crisis, the Biya regime has reported that only 26 members of the security forces have been killed by suspected separatists. However, no record of the number of civilian deaths has been established from an official source since the beginning of the crisis. Nearly 40,000 Southern Cameroonians, mostly villagers have fled to Nigeria.
