Yesterday, June 16, residents of the Mile 2, Nkwen area rescued a gendarme named Mankolo who was ambushed by Ambazonian fighters.
According to reports by the Cameroon News Agency (CNA), the gendarme had left his fellow officers in quest of food.
The gendarme was allegedly assaulted by Ambazonian fighters who raided a restaurant, shot him in the hand, and stole his rifle.
Having witnessed the awful event, civilians present at the restaurant came to the gendarme’s aid.
While some were using tissues to bandage the wound, others could be heard speaking in an attempt to calm the gendarme.
Mankolo was subsequently taken to the Mile 3 hospital, where he is undergoing intensive care.
In a recent video, Ambazonian fighters claimed responsibility for the attack, stating it was carried out by Butabu Kwifo soldiers.
