Two Cameroonian policemen injured by roadside blast in restive Anglophone region

YAOUNDE, Jan. 26 (Xinhua) — At least two policemen were injured by a roadside improvised explosive device in Cameroon’s restive Anglophone region of Southwest overnight into Tuesday, according to local officials.

The members of security were conducting a routine security patrol in the seaside resort town of Limbe when the device exploded, officials said.

They were taken to Limbe Regional Hospital for treatment. There was no word on their condition.

Armed separatists, who claimed responsibility for the attack, released a video of the blast on social media early Tuesday stating that it was part of their strategy to disrupt the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) which is underway in the Central African nation.

Togo and Rwanda are scheduled to clash in their final Group C match in Limbe Tuesday evening despite repeated threats by separatists who have been clashing with government forces since 2017 in a bid to create an independent nation in Cameroon’s two Anglophone regions of Northwest and Southwest.

Residents said, the streets have been deserted and most of the CHAN matches in the town played in scanty stadiums after separatists announced a lockdown last week.

  1. Wuna nova see anything. We will drop a nuclear bomb in man o war bay sooner.. wicked genocidaire devil.


    Commissions of disarmament are created only AFTER the cessation of hostilities and NOT during active fighting.
    The truth of the matter is that Dictator Biya started his sh*thole UNWINNABLE war hoping that it would last for a week or two, the so-called BLITZKRIEG.
    Unfortunately for him, Amba boys gave him an OPEN-ENDED WAR. That evil BULU Dictator does NOT have the resources and know-how to fight an open-ended war. THAT was the reason he created his so-called commission on disarmament. He thought he could end the war with the help of his dirty trick since he started the war without an EXIT STRATEGY.
    Unfortunately for Dictator Biya, Amba boys (the GENUINE ones) REJECTED the so-called commission on disarmament since WAR IS WAR.

    • The commission on disarmament is now being used by ex-convict Atanga Nji to ” disarm” his FAKE Amba boys and his FAKE Boko Haram militants.
      Believe me or not,
      1. The momentum is UNSTOPPABLE
      2. The war is UNWINNABLE
      3. The FINAL resolution to the Anglophone Question will be gotten this time around come rain come shine
      4. At least 95% of SC remains UNGOVERNABLE
      5. Dictator Biya will be the Most Valuable Casualty (MVC) of this war.

      Dictator Biya should, therefore, fight the sh*thole UNWINNABLE war he foolishly declared on the peaceful people of SC. This is compellin because GENUINE Amba boys will NEVER EVER, I repeat NEVER EVER surrender weapons. They are prepared to defend the land of their ancestors until the last man standing.
