The Fon of Baforkum, a village Bambui, restive North West region of Cameroon is reported dead.


The body of the traditional ruler who was forcefully taken away from his Palace for the second time over a month ago by suspected separatist fighters was discovered by locals Thursday July 8.

Sources from the region say it was dropped there by the abductors who fired gunshots three times before leaving.

Sources further say the body of the kidnapped Fon looked worn out, probably because of torture.

Local authorities in the region are yet to issue any official statement on the incident.

The late Fon is one among the many victims who keep losing their lives to the ongoing armed conflict rocking the region.
