The Cameroon army says its troops have killed three separatist ‘Generals’ and five others in the Northwest region in the last one week.
According to Brigadier General Nka Valere, Commander of the 5th Joint Military Region, one ‘General Cross and Die’ was killed on Oct. 29, in Ntamafe, a locality in Mankon, Bamenda II sub division.
“Cross and Die was among eight separatist fighters killed in different operations carried out by Cameroon’s military on Oct. 29 and 30, 2021,” General Valere announced, adding that the notorious General headed a separatist camp in Ntankah.
He was killed while attending a funeral of one of his relatives in Ntamafe.
The army also announced that the separatist fighter, General Princewill who masterminded the attack early Friday morning Oct. 29, on the Bamenda-Santa highway was also killed in a special operation at Mile 87, Bali road along with five of his colleagues.
According to the commander, another separatist General who went by the name Tiger was also killed by the government forces on Saturday, Oct. 30.
A separatist leader in the diaspora who goes by the name Capo Daniel confirmed the death of General Cross and Die in a social media post in which he said the separatist was ambushed by security forces in two unmarked civilian vehicles after attending a funeral service.
People celebrated the death of the separatist fighter who was notorious for many atrocities against the population in Bamenda.
Several Bamenda residents later turned out at the Bamenda Hospital Roundabout on Saturday to personally confirm that Cross and Die was really dead as his body was displayed at the said Roundabout by the military.
These new killings of separatist Generals follow earlier killings of four other Generals namely Mad Dog, Lion, Tiger, and Trouble.
The army said it is now poised to kill notorious General No Pity after he narrowly escaped during an operation in Akeh.
The ongoing successes of the military against separatist Generals and their fighters is attributed to the improved intelligence gathering by the security forces, cooperation from the population and increasing disagreement within the different separatist groups.
