Several areas of Cameron’s Far North region have for the past weeks been affected by heavy floods.
The situation just got worse days back when four persons were swept away by the floods.
Four members of the elite Rapid Intervention Battalion, BIR, The Guardian Post newspaper reports that they were swept away in the Moskota locality on July 23rd.
“The soldiers were returning from a mission in Dzamadzaf when their vehicle tipped over at the level of the Moskota bridge and was carried away by the waters” the paper reports.
The vehicle was later retrieved “by the army rescue unit the following day alongside the corpse of one of the BIR soldiers” it adds.
The country’s defense ministry is yet to make an official declaration on the incident.
