26 soldiers injured in Cameroon road accident

xinhua | At least 26 soldiers were injured, 10 of them critically, when their military vehicle overturned on a steepy road on Saturday in Cameroon’s Northwest region, police said.

The accident temporarily blocked traffic in Bamenda, chief town of the region where the tragedy occurred as emergency crews worked to extricate the soldiers from a valley where the vehicle fell.

Witnesses told Xinhua, it appeared a wheel came off the vehicle as it descended the road.

The soldiers were on the way to reinforce security in parts of the region where separatist fighters were operating actively, according to army sources.

The Cameroon army is intensifying military operations in the region following repeated raids by separatist fighters who want to create an independent nation in the two Anglophone regions of the Central African nation. Enditem

  1. No country on planet earth has ever defeated an IDEOLOGY manu militari. LRC will not be the exception.

    Simply put, LRC is simply wasting innocent lives, precious time, meager resources and energy in SC.
    The war is UNWINNABLE. The NEGOTIATING TABLE is the only path to ending the war.

    • The myth of the INVINCIBILITY of the BIRs was shattered beyond the reasonable doubt by the BOYSES IN THE BUSHES ON THE BUSHES on the 17.09.2021. Twenty BIRs were neutralized and stripped naked, the images posted on the web for the world to see. Two amoured vehicles amounting to almost a billion FCFA were burnt down, weapons and other hardwares were seized.
      In sum, the military of LRC was humiliated beyond imagination by the BOYSES IN THE BUSHES.
      It was the MOTHER OF ALL EMBARASSMENTS AND HUMILIATIONS for Dictator Biya.

      SHAME ON DICTATOR BIYA.
      SHAME ON LRC.

      THE WAR CONTINUES…..

  2. anything that is base on ideology not cool blooded rational calculated thinking is bound to fail because the architects are guided by emotion not logic.in all confrontations,those who remain calm rational and thoughtful always come out victorious because thier decesions are carefully thought wieghed implemented and adjusted when necessary.
    what determine pre conditions for negociation is military prowess.the taliban could impose conditions on the united states because they were winning the battle militarily.

  3. Bah Acho, you claimed you were building a dam but cannot reveal where it is located.

    If the dam turns out to be just as your grammar and spellings, we can tell that it is only in your cretinous skull that it exists.

    You are an epitome of an insipid obnoxious charlatan.

    • AMBAMAN,,,,, I am not controlled by emotions but calm careful rational thinking.first I should ask myself what the consequences of giving out such information will be, exactly like I said you should have ask yourself what the consequences of taking up arms against younde would be before doing it. But since you are brought up in a society deculturised by Christian dogma. You allow emotions to take control of your mind. No calm thoughtful rational calculation before action.the result is what we are now facing. Even in this situation you refuse to be rational in your accessement.
