Nsongo Deline is no more. The Buea-based youth was shot dead point blank yesterday at Bongongo 1 Barombi, PM Dion Ngute’s village, in Cameroon’s South West region.
Sources close to his family say he had gone to visit his family when the incident happened.
They were celebrating in a bar when soldiers misunderstood the sounds for an attack.
“While they were celebrating, the soldiers thought ambas had entered the village so they took some of them including him so that the could go and catch the ambas,” a source explains.
A soldier suspected of having an issue with the boy allegedly shot him in the process.
“As they were going, they stopped ata building close to the bar and pointed the boy with the gun already loaded and suddenly we just heard gun shots,” he says.
“… it was my brother that had been shot death on the skull ….. His brain had been scattered,” our source laments, adding that “after that, they left as if nothing happened.”
Thousands have lost their lives for no fault of theirs as gun battles between soldiers and separatist fighters battle on in a close to four years war.
