Militants of Ambazonia, a separatist group in South West Cameroon, have reportedly killed at least 20 people in a community in Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State.
Chief Cletus Obun, a former member of Cross River House of Assembly and an aspirant of House of Reps for Boki/Ikom federal constituency, confirmed the incident, saying it happened on Sunday.
“I can confirm that the Ambazonian soldiers crossed the Nigerian border Sunday morning to attack their compatriots who fled into Nigeria and refused to join their forces to fight.”
“They killed nearly 20. No one is sure yet if amongst those killed, there are Nigerian citizens.”
He said the remaining Cameroonians who also speak Bokye language of Boki people have now flooded Bashu community, not far from Danare, where Nigerian troops have a small camp.
