Bamenda: Security Reinforced as Nkwen Attack kills Six

It is business as usual in the North West regional capital Bamenda, hours after officials of the Bamenda Regional Hospital and the Nkwen District Hospital indicated that at least 6 civilians died from the attack by unidentified gunmen in Nkwen.

Witnesses say the gun, men allegedly separatists, stormed a leisure spot in Nkwen and opened fire shooting indiscriminately at the crowd that turned out to commune with a Nigerian film producer known as Slyvester Madu who was in Bamenda to shot a movie.

Four people were injured in the attack. Five people died upon arrival at the Nkwen district hospital while two injured cases were transferred to the Bamenda Regional Hospital.

The medical adviser of the hospital, Dr Samuel Agwafor said four people were admitted, a fifth died on arrival, one is responding to treatment while the others are stable and have been discharged.

Defence and security forces have opened investigations to crackdown the perpetrators and bring them to book.

The incident has been described by security experts as hit and run tactics of the separatist who seek to institute fear among the civilian population through killings, kidnappings and attacks on individuals in Bamenda and other parts of the region.

Administrative officials have strongly condemned the barbaric acts and called on the population to collaborate with authorities to track down those responsible for the heinous actions.
