Four persons are reported dead following a shootout that took place Saturday, November 9, 2019, in Ngoketunjia Division, North West Region.
Sources say two were killed in Bamukumbit and two others in Balikumbat.
According to residents, it resulted from shootings in the area by the Forces of Law and Order.
“The two persons killed in Balikumbat were Amba boys. They were killed by La Republique soldiers as the corpse of late military man whose head was cut off by unknown gun men in Bamenda last month was returning back home in Balikumbat. The two killed are blood brothers,” a source told Mimi Mefo Info.
In the wake of a major national dialogue to seek lasting peace to the Anglophone crisis, a government soldier was beheaded and dumped in Bamenda by suspected Ambazonian fighters.
The soldier hails from Ngoketunjia Division of the restive North West Region of Cameroon.
Government soldiers have been fighting pro independence fighters who took up arms late 2017 to defend the their territory and fight for its independence from French Cameroon.
