The soldiers displayed the corpses of the slain separatist fighters in public view for residents to see.

Four Anglophone separatist fighters were killed in the Northwest regional capital of Bamenda by a Cameroon army patrol unit. 

The incident happened on  Sunday, Sept. 12 around 11:45 p.m., after which soldiers displayed the half-naked and bloodied bodies of the four separatists at the Finance Junction.

“The four separatist fighters were killed in Ntarikon, not far from the residence of Ni John Fru Ndi, the National Chairman of Cameroon’s leading opposition party, the Social Democratic Front (SDF). They were on board a green Carina E car with registration number 159430,” a military source revealed.
