Cameroon separatist fighters have carried out over half a dozen attacks in the littoral region with Monday’s attack coming barely a week after one of the armed groups, the Ambazonia Defence Force, declared that they were “taking the war into the French-speaking regions” of the country.
In a previous attack, separatist fighters were accused of burning down the Penda Mboko Gendarmerie station.
