Kumba: Explosive Device Found Near Local Police Station

The explosive was dropped a few meteres away from the local police station

Early morning on Thursday January 7, a locally made explosive has been discovered in Kumba, capital city of Meme division in Cameroon’s restive Anglophone regions

The explosive was dropped a few meteres away from the local police station, probably intended to attack the military on duty

“The city is in panic” an inhabitant said adding that military presence on the streets of Kumba doubled as they go about their business timidly

Ambazonia separatist fighters have a record of using locally made explosives in their fight against the government military soldiers in Cameroon

A recent explosive early this week left at least 5 soldiers dead
