A separatist group calling itself the Wounded Squade of Bafut Seven Kata has killed a member of the Cameroon armed forces in Bafut, North West Region.
The group released a video of its menbers man-handling the remains of the soldier whom they claimed died in an armbush recently.
The fighters could be seen pulling the dead soldier on the ground while calling on government forces in Bafut to lay down their weapons.
In another video, the armed men brandished a weapon, ammunitions and other military gears they say were ‘harvested’ during the attack.
Bafut is one of the hotest spots in the ongoing war in the two anglophone regions of Cameroon. Many military operations baptised ‘Bafut clean’, organised by the then Commander of the 5th Joint Military Region, Gen. Nka Valère and Gen. Ekongwese Divine and the 5th Joint Gendarmerie Region and the former Regional Delelate of National Security, Police Commissioner Gousmo Emile have been carried out. Aimed at getting rid of separatist fighters in the area, they have all failed as the fighters continue to operate and cause havoc.
“They are everywhere. It is like when one is killed, many others are born. Many have fled the area where the soldiers were attacked for fear that government forces might be planning a revenge attack,” Ngwa Tim told MMI.
