The Cameroon army has been accused of killing two separatist fighters arrested in Bafut on June 22, 2022.

The two fighters, identified as ‘General’ A4 and Mama G, were found dead on Saturday, July 16, 2022, in Bafut.

According to local sources, the two were among seven persons arrested on June 22, 2022, during a birthday party in Bafut.

HumAngle understands that the seven separatist fighters arrested were accused of being terrorists, and at the time of filing this report, only the corpses of two have been found. The fate of the five others is not yet known.
