A police officer was brutally killed at his residence on Saturday evening in Mutengene, South West Region of Cameroon, sources have confirmed.
Ekahnjume Simon was brutally killed by armed men who attacked his residence late in the evening before ghosting away after their act. It is not clear if it was an attack carried out by separatist fighters.
His corpse has been deposited at the Buea Regional hospital mortuary as investigation has been opened to track down the perpetrators of the act.
This is the second security officer to be killed in Mutengene in recent weeks after a gendarme officer was killed in Ombe along the Mutengene -Limbe road by unarmed men who made away with his weapon.
