Yaounde: 27 soldiers in Kondengui over mutiny in Far North region 0

27 soldiers combating the Nigerian Islamic sect, Boko Haram in the Far North region of La Republique du Cameroun have been detained at the Kondengui central prison in Yaoundé. The Biya Francophone regime says the troops expressed their dissatisfaction against the government by blocking a major road in Far-North with barricades in protest against the non-payment of their premiums and deployment allowance.

Cameroon Concord News learned that the incident had displeased the military authorities who ordered the arrest of the 27 soldiers that were involved and taken to Yaoundé. The ministry of defense attempted an explanation and stressed that the Yaoundé regime will not tolerate indiscipline in the ranks, especially in the far north, a region currently facing too many Boko Haram incursions.

Sanctions were imposed on the soldiers concerned, in accordance with instructions from the head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces noted the Minister of Defense, Joseph Beti Assomo.
