There was an attack at Kembong Cameroon where three soldiers were killed by Separatist fighters overnight, four other soldiers were injured during the attack at the South-west region

Source from two military men and a separatist fighter on Sunday said that the attack in the town of Kembong came hours after President Paul Biya in an address that was televised that the situation in Anglophone Cameroon was stable meanwhile there was fighting and Riot in the country.

“ADF forces carried out the attacks,” said Cho Ayaba, the leader of the Ambazonian Defence Force, an armed separatist group.

Residents in the Anglophone regions told Reuters last week that the army burned houses in the village of Bole and shot residents on Feb. 2.

An army spokesman said claims that houses were burned and people shot in Bole were “totally false”, and he denied that soldiers were mistreating residents in other villages

The problem all started in 2016 when the government came against English-speaking lawyers and teachers who protested against working in French which has now turned into a crisis.

These has augmented a separatist movement party with some armed group which wants to split Cameroon’s English-speaking minority from Yaounde to form a new state known as Ambazonia
