Five self-proclaimed Anglophone separatist ‘generals’ have been reported killed by the Cameroon army during operations in Nfoyah village, Bafut subdivision of the Northwest region.

“Today, Aug. 18, 2021, in the village of Nfoyah, Bafut subdivision in the Northwest region, the pseudo general Ebube and four of his accomplices were neutralised following intelligence information,” Cameroonian army announced on Thursday, Aug. 19.
