Residents of Matondo II village, popularly known as Number 19, under the Konye Subdivision have been hit with yet another violent military raid. The raid recorded huge material damage.
Villagers told Mimi Mefo Infos that they were scared off yesterday by the sounds of gunshots, causing them to flee into the bushes.
A villager who witnessed the incident from a close location revealed that bike riders, who had also been scared by the gunshots and took off, were mistaken for separatists by the soldiers.
“…they followed the bike riders into the village thinking they were Amba boys, then they proceeded to burn down houses and motorbikes.” A witness told us.
Two houses were completely razed to the floor by the soldiers, as well as seven motorbikes.
The villagers managed to escape to the bush before the arrival of the military.
For now, it is still unknown if there were any human casualties following this violent attack from the military. There is equally no information about the motorbike riders who had been chased into the village by the soldiers in their raid.
