A former separatist fighter has been killed by his former colleagues in Lewoh, near Fontem as he returned home almost 2 years after he absconded from the fight.
According to reliable information given to MMI from sources in Lewoh, the ex-fighter, whose only name we got as Sammy, escaped to Yaoundé after deciding to abandon the fight.
After leaving the fight, Sammy reportedly fled to Yaoundé where he spent over two years, away from the war in the Anglophone zones.
“Sammy returned with the hope that all had returned to normal in the village, where he was shot by fighters on ground,” explained a source.
After being spotted by active separatist fighters in Lewoh, he was shot on the spot and killed on Friday, June 24, 2022.
It is unclear why Sammy was summarily executed. While some hold the view that he was treated as a traitor and could not be trusted, others highlight that this is another sign of how things have degenerated into chaos in the conflict-hit regions.
Some shades of opinion highlight the fact that Ambazonian fighters have become judges, juries and executioners, mainly against their own.
Sammy’s body has been laid to rest.
