Another officer, Private Biloa was shot along the Bali Bamenda high way, sources have confirmed.

Their vehicle approached a barricade which had been mounted by suspected separatist fighters. The latter have been waging a campaign for a break away state called Ambazonian which was declared independent on October 1, 2017.
