There has been widespread shock in Nancho, Bamenda, the capital of Cameroon’s restive North West Region, where the body Asanji Michael, a Chomba Prince, was dumped by his killers yesterday evening.
Asanji left his Chomba village at 1:00PM — and was reportedly intercepted by what relatives have described as “unknown assassins.”
“The assassins were three in number and they drove him to an unknown destination,” a source told MMI.
“Ambazonian fighters are responsible. They seized him around Mama Bridge, that leads to Bali,” another source told Mimi Mefo Info.
“Asanji was later found dead in his car with his hands tied behind and all his gadgets lying in the car,” continued our source.
Asanji is a prince from Chomba, North West Region of Cameroon and his death comes at a time when traditional authorities have come under constant attack, since the onset of the ongoing conflict in the region.
Traditional and political authorities have not yet reacted to this incident.
It should be recalled that on March 9, 2022, the traditional ruler (Fon) of Esu, another village in the North West Region, was killed together with his wife in an ambush, and to date, the killers have not been brought to justice.
