Written by News Room on May 30, 2022
Militants of Ambazonia, a separatist group in South West Cameroon, have killed at least 20 people in a community in Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State.
Former member of Cross River House of Assembly and an aspirant of House of Reps for Boki/Ikom federal constituency, Chief Cletus Obun, confirmed the incident, saying it happened on Sunday.
He said the remaining Cameroonians who also speak Bokye language of Boki people have now flooded Bashu community, not far from Danare, where Nigerian troops have a small camp.
When contacted, Information officer of 13 Brigade of Nigerian Army Calabar, Captain Tope Aluko, said they were yet to confirm the latest attack, which happened six months after a similar invasion in Taraba State.
Ambazonian militants regularly saunter into the Boki, where there are many Cameroonians, to wreak havoc or unwind.
Senate Deputy Minority Leader, Emmanuel Bwacha, had raised the alarm over how suspected Cameroonian militants gunned down the village head and some residents of Manga community in Taraba.
