About 60 people were kidnapped in an attack in one of Cameroon’s majority Anglophone provinces

Around 60 people were kidnapped on Monday in an attack on separatist militiamen in the Lebialem department of Cameroon in one of the two Anglophone majority provinces of the African country.

Local sources, quoted by the Journal du Cameroun newspaper, have indicated that the event took place in the village of Mouck Leteh, and added that the kidnapped people were forcibly removed from a bar where they were at the time.

This medium has shown that Lebialem’s Red Dragons are suspected, one of the armed groups operating in the region, although there is currently no claim to responsibility for the incident.

The event also took place days after contacts between detained separatists and the government of Cameroon became known to reach a ceasefire agreement that Yaoundé rejected.
