Cameroon government security officials have confirmed the deaths of two of its servicemen reportedly tortured and killed by unknown Ambazonian militants. In a recent video circulated by some Southern Cameroons activists on social networks, armed separatists tortured and beheaded two Cameroon government army soldiers.
We gathered that one of the soldiers killed was serving with the firefighter’s brigade in Bamenda in the Northern Zone of Southern Cameroons-Ambazonia.
Security sources confirmed that “One of the young soldiers was kidnapped Monday, then tortured, before being executed,” a security source at the Ministry of Defense who requested anonymity hinted Cameroon Concord News. Yesterday, 36 people were briefly kidnapped before being released.
