The Bishop of the Diocese of Mamfe, His Lordship Bishop Andrew Nkea has visited Kembong village destroyed by the Francophone dominated armed forces recently in one of the most deadliest attack ever since the Southern Cameroons uprising.
Cameroon Concord News gathered the man of God was speechless as he walked across the numerous houses burnt down by the Francophone army. 6 Cameroonian soldiers were also killed, 6 riffles were seized by the Southern Cameroons militants and a pickup 4×4 hilux truck was damaged along the Mfuni road that left some of the passengers seriously wounded.
For a reminder, the village of Kembong in Eyumojock Sub constituency suffered casualties with the most pathetic being the burning down of the home of the late UNDP parliamentarian Chief Alfred Besong by government soldiers. The Cameroon government troops also set fire on the only hotel in kembong including five other buildings. A new brand Siena car was destroyed and a civilian shot on the leg. The villagers have all escaped to the forest and kembong is now a ghost village.
