The Cameroon military, on June 8 invaded Teke, a village in Kumba III Subdivision in Meme Division, South West Region, in an operation that led to the death of a self-styled Ambazonian ‘general’ and his assistant.
‘General’ Deco and Neville were reportedly killed in an operation by the Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) officers, who say their aim is to eradicate separatist fighters who according to them have been disturbing the peace and tranquility in the locality.
It is reported that the bodies of the Ambazonian fighters were displayed at the BICEC junction by the military.
The Senior Divisional Officer of Meme Division, Chamberlain Ntou’ou Ndong used the opportunity to call on those still in the bushes, to drop their arms or they will be killed as well: “Let me seize this opportunity to advise the whole population of Meme Division to tell their children to join the DDR in Buea.” the administrator implored.
He further reiterated that joining the DDR is the only way out given to them by the Head of State.
“But for those who want to insist to fight the country, they can be reassured that at the end, they are going also to be neutralized,” Chamberlain emphasized
According to sources, the gang has been a great nuisance to the locality with constant attacks, kidnapping for ransoms, and seizure of farms amongst others.
It should be noted that the self-styled ‘General Deco’ is said to be amongst the inmates who joined the separatist fighters after being released from prison through a presidential pardon.
