Military and Civilian Casualties Recorded in Bui Blood Bath

The armed conflict in Kumbo took a new twist, August 4, 2021 with several military and civilian deaths registered in Bui division. This was in an incident that happened in the area August 4th. An improvised explosive is said to have gone off, targeting a military convoy heading to Tadu in a village called Firkov few minutes from the administrative headquarters, Tobin. The explosive is reported to have hit and killed about 7 military elements. Survivors, our source said, suffered severe cuts and bleeding from the explosion. The incident provoked the remaining military elements who continued the journey on foot” a source says. He explained that “… along the way, a group of men, a carpenter and 4 of his apprentices who were returning from Tadu obviously unaware of the incident, met the military on foot at the next village called Yungkui. Out of fear and panic, they jumped off their bikes and ran into nearby bushes”. The source adds that the military opened fire at them, killing all. A lady and another elderly person have also feared dead as their whereabouts remain unknown. DHPI noted that it has become a trend now for the Cameroonian military forces to always take their frustration on the civilian population whenever they are provoked, attacked and some of their members killed by the non-state armed groups. With the rate at which the military are dying in their numbers, the government continues to give a deaf ear to calls for her to rethink her method of solving the conflict and climb down from her high horse and call for an all-inclusive dialogue.
