Southern Cameroons Struggle: Militants kill police officer in Ashong 0

A police officer was killed over the weekend in Ashong, in the Northern Zone of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia in the midst of fighting between Southern Cameroons separatists and troops loyal to the Biya regime in Yaoundé.

Cameroon Concord News gathered that the gendarmerie brigade was attacked around 10 am GMT by armed men who reportedly came from Batibo, not far from Ashong. Three gendarmes who were providing surveillance were shot. One was killed by bullets and two others were wounded.

A well-placed security source revealed that three other gendarmes who were inside the brigade were wounded during the exchange of fire. The Ambazonian fighters made away with weapons and ammunition.

Recently, the so-called new Minister of Territorial Administration, Paul Atanga Nji directed the French Cameroun governors in Southern Cameroons to ban the circulation of motorcycle taxi in the districts of Batibo and Widikum in the Momo County and in Mundemba, Muyuka, Kumba, Mbonge and Konye in the Southern Zone.
