Cameroon Special Forces loyal to the regime in Yaoundé say they have arrested the main agent recruiting soldiers for the Southern Cameroons Defense Force. Our source within the military leadership hinted that AYUK NKEN Franklin was arrested in Bachuo Akaegbe village some 12 kilometers from Mamfe the chief town in Mamyu.
The Francophone dominated army also revealed that he was arrested in possession of three weapons of war and ammunition. The army added that his mission was to enlist and train young people in combat.
We understand that on the night of 7 to 8 December 2017, five Ambazonian militants were shot dead by the Cameroon Defense Forces, who responded to an attack by nearly 200 freedom fighters on the Mamfe gendarmerie post.
Three of the Southern Cameroonians killed were named as Tako Prosper Arrey, Anyong Patrick Abong and Disengi Kendry. Constable KELLY Hervé on duty at the Mamfe Gendarmerie Territorial Brigade was killed during the attack and ten members of the defense forces were wounded.
