At least ten suspected separatist fighters were killed on Friday November 16, in an operation carried out by Cameroon security forces, sources have confirmed.
Security sources say an operation launched in the early hours of Friday enable security forces to ambush the fighters including their kingpin popularly called “General Amigo”.
However, local sources say they were set up by an insider at a funeral before they were ambushed by security forces in Belo.
‘General Amigo’ was last seen in a video on Monday November 12 alongside another ring leader ‘General RK’ as both men seem to reassure their followers of their ‘unity’.
Fighting has intensified in the North West region of Cameroon this week with over twenty five persons killed and several houses burnt in the Bui, Donga Mantung and Menchum Divisions.
