Reports say a female primary school teacher in Ekona, Muyuka Sub Division in the South West region has been shot.
Che Rhoda was shot early Tuesday 6th September, 2022, on her way to school.
“she had left their family home and was on her way to school when she was shot along the road. She was shot by pro-independence fighters,” narrated a source, who confirmed that that Separatists, fighting for an independent state called ‘Ambazonia’ were responsible.
No Separatist group has, however, confirmed the shooting yet.
Che Rhoda who was rushed to the hospital is now “battling for her life,” said our source.
Another witness told Mimi Mefo info that: “the shooting has been going on since 7:00am and teachers are targets and the young lady who was shot is even a child from Ekona.”
Today’s incident is coming on the second day of school resumption for the 2022/2023 academic year.
While some Separatists have threatened some school-going kids, other groups have urged children to go back to school after halting classes in the Anglophone Regions for over five years.
