Bamenda (National Times)-Unknown gunmen suspected to be separatists’ fighters killed a police officer whose names The National Times got as David Asoh in the locality of Sabongari, Dunga Mantung Division, North West region of Cameroon on Sunday April 28 under unclear circumstances.
Unconfirmed reports hold that Asoh had attained the rank of commissioner within the police corps. His assassination many believe is not unconnected to the arm conflict escalating across English-speaking Cameroon.
Sunday’s murder surfaced in the wake of outrage over the recent beheading of a gendarme element Adam Asana in Muyuka, South West Region last week. Days after that, another person was beheaded in Bamenda while another security officer was murdered in Wum, Menchum Division.
While tension erupted in Sabongari, Bamenda the Regional capital city was unstable after a youngster was spotted lifeless with bullet wounds all over his body. This was around the New Church Azire Vicinity.
The increasing condemnation from within and without the country of happenings within the context of Cameroon’s arm conflict seems to be falling on deaf ears as both sides of the conflict seem unmoved.
