The population of Mbalangi, Mbonge subdivision of the South West region have reportedly killed three separatist fighters in the area.
The Amba boys are said to have been killed as they attempted disrupting a football match in the community.
According to inhabitants, the separatist fighters attempted to disrupt an ongoing football match claiming it was organised against a separatist-imposed ghost town.
Confusion is said to have swept across the community when the separatist fighters set a home ablaze.
In retaliation, scores of youths in the community descended on the armed men and manhandled them to death.
A local quoted one of those killed as having blamed the people for ” behaving as if the country is fine while the country is not. They tried to kidnap some players so they can go and kill them, but the crowd was alerted and few separatist fighters were apprehended and killed.”
The Senior Divisional Officer for Meme division, Ntou’oudong Chamberlin, later met the population.
He thanked the youths and assured them of the security put in place to ensure the smooth running of their daily activities in Mbalangi.
During his visit to Mbalangi, the administrator said, ” I came on behalf of the Head of State to appreciate the youths of Mbalangi who have finally decided to send away those criminals. We are going to do everything to ensure that the security is guaranteed in Mbalangi.”
