Bekatako, a village not far off from Ekondo Titi, in the Ndian Division, South West Region where some 4 students and a teacher were killed by alleged Separatists was targeted by the Cameroon army today morning, who were searching for separatists fighters.
The attack is said to have left at least one civilian dead, as he was deliberately shot by the soldiers because he attempted to run away from them.
