Crisis in the Noso: MINDEF Confirmed the arrest of a Cameroonian soldier in Connection to the barbaric act in Bamenda


In a press release published on the antennas of the National Post (CRTV) this February 19, 2020 during the 5 p.m. newspaper, Joseph B├ęti Assomo minister delegate to the Presidency in charge of Defense announces the arrest of a soldier. Indeed, the latter opened fire on two individuals in a hospital in Bamenda. The drama occurred very early today in the capital of the North West region.
"Indeed, arrested by a patrol from air base 501, which was precisely tracking a group of secessionist terrorists, the Toyota brand Tercel type vehicle registered NO 366AB fled after refusing to comply, forcing the patrol to launch in pursuit, "said the press release.

The vehicle and its two occupants will thus take refuge in the aforementioned hospital center. And that's where they will be killed, we learn.

"… The suspect vehicle will change course despite the usual warnings, before attempting a hideout in the parking lot of Saint Mary Catholic Hospital, the place precisely where a soldier will open fire in violation of the rules of engagement", specifies the press release from MINDEF.

The driver of the vehicle, a certain Fuh Augustine, born on February 1, 1971 in Bafut, was fatally injured. The second occupant of the car, Fruh Romanus, was "shot in the left leg two weeks ago on the Mbengwi-Bamenda axis during a confrontation with the defense and security forces. The result was an amputation of the said leg at Saint Mary Catholic Hospital where the latter received care as an outpatient, ”it reads.

Soldier's arrest

The Minister of Defense informs that the “soldier who shot was immediately arrested at the gendarmerie company in Bamenda. The flagrant investigation ordered as soon as opened is under way and the quintessence of its conclusions could be made public in due course. ”
