A pregnant nurse has been shot dead by Cameroonian soldiers in Kumbo, a war torn town in North West Cameroon, Friday January 18, 2019, locals say. Soldiers loyal to President Paul Biya shot and killed the pregnant nurse at close range, eyewitnesses have told National Telegraph.
Her corpse is presently lying at the Shisong General Hospital, National Telegraph has confirmed. At least, five other persons have been killed in other parts of Kumbo yesterday, Thursday January 17, 2019 after soldiers embarked on indiscriminate shootings.
Since the beginning of an armed conflict that broke out in the two English-speaking Regions, soldiers have killed thousands of innocent civilians including children and pregnant women. In some cases, aged persons have been burnt alive in their homes including physically challenged persons who couldn’t escape to havens during military raids.
Hundreds of villages have been burnt down and over a million refugees registered in Nigeria and other parts of Cameroon or the World. Thousands are also reportedly held in various detention centers under deplorable conditions.
Armed groups in the two Regions are said to be fighting for the Restoration of the statehood of the former British Southern Cameroons after peaceful protesters demanding for reforms, met with iron replies from soldiers.
