French Cameroun military officers raided the village of Bamendakwe in Up Station Bamenda, the chief city in the Northern Zone of Southern Cameroons over the weekend killing three Ambazonian civilians. The troops loyal to the regime in Yaoundé were ordered by the Francophone governor Lele L’Afrique to destroy an Ambazonian security check point located in Bamendakwe.
Cameroon Concord News sources hinted that the French Cameroun soldiers entered Bamendakwe on board a taxi owned by a relative of Minister Paul Atanga Nji and opened fire on innocent civilians.
Yaoundé announced late on Sunday that 2 separatist fighters were killed during the operation. However, we gathered that Ambazonia Self Defense Forces retaliated immediately after the Francophone soldiers stormed the village killing two of them.
It should be noted that the French Cameroun military has carried out numerous raids on Bamendakwe killing women and children. Our chief correspondent in Bamenda reported that some 18 young men and women have so far been in Bamendakwe among them two persons with mental disorder.
