Two Cameroonian soldiers killed in ambush by suspected separatist fighters

XINHUA | At least two Cameroonian soldiers were killed on Wednesday in an ambush by suspected separatist fighters in the country’s restive Anglophone region of Southwest, according to security and local sources.

The soldiers, on their way to buy some basic commodities from a nearby village, were ambushed and killed in Ekondo Titi locality of the region by gunmen, a security official reporters while opting for anonymity.

Separatist fighters who want to create an independent nation in Cameroon’s two Anglophone regions are known to be active in the locality, according to security reports.

Government forces and separatist fighters have been clashing in the regions since 2017.

  1. And their guns, were harvested by the separatist soldiers. And the good
    thing, is also that they are free from the war. Others want to escape but
    there is no way, but they are lucky, the boyses, showed them the right way.

    • JOSHUA,,,,reading your comments it is easy to sense that you are a wereh neng[follower of long nose tattooed jesus,christian].because only a christian can think in such an emotional non reflective way.if not you should have asked yourself what the result of all this will be.to know what the result will be we can turn to eritrea,somaliland,south sudan and east timor.

    This present situation is a perfect example of why emotionally based logic will always be a black man downfall. It’s always about me, me and me. I have a question for people like you who are rooting for this madness. Who do you think has a higher chance to be labeled a terrorist organization by the world let’s say 10 years if this is still going on? The government or the rebel lion? Now before you answer this I need you to look up the history of civil war in Africa and what usually happens after the 10 year mark and the 20 year mark. We really have a serious problem in Africa with emotions and wonder why more disciplined and rationally based culture have been enslaving mentally for centuries

    • They went to buy some basic commodities.What a joke. Were they not aware there is an ongoing assymetrical war and they are a pricey target?

  3. This will not last 10 years. Lrc is broke and soldiers are demoralized; you get killed for going to get a bite, you Captain don’t give a shit about you. AFCON has to remind lrc that Yaounde is unsanitary and has cholera. Fight or no fight; what has this regime done for the country in 40 years? Small Gabon hosted international contest with no hiccup! Think about that or lookup the word failure?

      Once again this is an emotionally based statement with no long term planning and no ramifications on what that will mean to all the generation of (poor) kids in those regions. Do you honestly believe that you as a movement could ever come close to the budget of a government?? Have you ever ever studied wars strategies and planning? If that’s the case that’s scary because you’re obviously out of touch with reality and completely blinded by your emotion. And are you saying Gabon the monarchy is a better government lol This is not your fault this behavior was planted into great great grandparents psyche by the real enemy. You know the person that have you believe that you’re more Of an English man than an African lol To the point where you’re willing to die for something you don’t understan

      • FAI FANSO,,,,,, how long have you been saying that the so called LRC is broke? remember from the very beginning I said if you are calm thoughtful and rational enough not allowing emotions to control your thinking. You will realize you are fighting a lost battle.you responded that you are fighting assimilation and I said why not go for an African language like kiswahili already used widely in East Africa. You said it is not your language. I then ask you if English is your language.

  5. The NEGOTIATING TABLE is the only path to peace. Nothing more nothing less.
    At the negotiating table, the ROOT CAUSE of the Anglophone Queston will be discussed.
    The ROOT CAUSE can mathematically be illustrated thus:

    SC + LRC = 0 + LRC = IMBECILE NONSENSE FALSEHOOD

    It is common knowledge and a celebrated fact that only the recognition and acceptance of the ROOT CAUSE will and can set LRC free.

    The truth is that:

    1. SC is SC, LRC is LRC. Simply put, SC has NEVER EVER disappeared into thin air
    2. SC and LRC are two INDEPENDENT nations EQUAL IN STATUS
    3. LRC has ZERO LEGAL AUTHORITY to give an independent nation a so-called SPECIAL STATUS
    4. There is no place on planet earth known as “NOSO” of LRC

    CONCLUSION

    The war can and will only stop AFTER the ROOT CAUSE has been resolved.

  6. BAH ACHO Whaen are u going to start championing the movement to impose Kiswahili in the courts and schools in Cameroon?

  7. KONGOSSA,,,,we are Africans with a civilization and values system. We should not allow aliens to brainwash and uproot us culturally to think that we are British or French to the point of killing each other.my strategy to impose this language is under construction. It takes time.

  8. @BAH ACHO Please do fast.I can’t wait

  9. BAH ACHO – Please read the article in “Business In Cameroon” dated November 8, 2021 titled ” Cameroon Raises XAF 40.5 Billion” If you are not capable of understanding it, this is a summary. The national debt as of 9/30/21 was 11,109 billion, (does not include unpaid bills and salaries) representing 42.5% of GDP. At this rate lrc is moving into a highly indebted nation, the article says not me. Lrc’s debts were wiped clean less than 10 years ago and here we go again; the credit cards are maxed out and noting to show for the debt but toilet tissue and shampoo taken from the Intercontinental Hotel in Geneva!
