Kumba : Suspected Ambazonia fighter killed at SDO’s residence

At least one person suspected to be an Ambazonian fighter has been killed this morning in Kumba following a suspected attack on the residence of the Senior Divisional Officer for the Meme Division.

According to local reports on the scene, the suspected fighter was shot and killed at about 1.00AM on Monday morning as he attempted to spy on the residence of the SDO Ntou’ou Ndong Chamberlain. A knife was later discovered on the body of the fighter.

Sources say gunshots were exchanged between the soldiers and fighters before they took off their heels.

This is the fifth attack on the residence of the Senior Divisional Officer of Meme in recent months as the Division has been placed under high security alert following the escalation of violence in that part of the country.

One suspected fighter was also killed in Konye in an attack on the Konye gendarmerie brigade last night.
