At least two persons are feared dead in Bafia, a village in Muyuka in Cameroon’s South West Region.
Locals say they were shot this morning in an exchange of gunfire with security forces.
The two are believed to be dead. Locals say they are suspected separatist fighters.
“We were returning from fetching water without knowing what was happening when we saw two dead bodies being guarded by the military,” a local told MMI.
The corpses, our source added, were dressed in civilian attire, casting doubts over their identities.
Thousands of civilians, separatist fighters, and soldiers have been killed since the conflict became an armed struggle.
The latest deaths come under a wee after Prime Minister Dion Ngute ended a peace visit to the embattled North West and South West Regions.
