Cameroon: Gendarme officer shoots child to death in Buea

An officer of the National Gendarmerie has reportedly shot to death a child who was going to school early morning in Buea, South West Region of Cameroon.

According to eyewitnesses, the child was being accompanied to school in a vehicle by her mother when the gendarme stopped them around the check point in Molyko.

In an attempt to park the vehicle off the road, the gendarme is said to have immediately opened fire from the back which burst through the back screen of the vehicle before hitting the child who died instantly.

The angly crowd immediately descended on the scene to effect mob justice on the gendarme as activities have been paralysed in Buea.
