Two persons have been killed in Luh, a small village in the North West region of Cameroon
On Monday May 31, 2021, villagers say they woke up to random gunshots as government military forces invaded the land in search of separatist fighters
“They arrived very early in the morning and we were woken up by gunshots” a villager said as he recounted the story to this writer in Bamenda
“We heard shooting in many directions and at the end, two people were killed” he added
In videos circulating online, a group of young men are seen carrying dead bodies which rest on their shoulders
The bodies are tied to sticks resting on their shoulders, as villagers walk behind them pouring out tears for the deceased
About 8 others were injured, villagers said
But the government or any of it’s communication arm is yet to respond on the accusation that her military invaded Luh, killing two men, all from the same family
In many shootouts, the government has hardly held it’s military accountable
Although a few stories have reported military soldiers being locked up for torturing or shooting at civilians, no news is heard further as to the punishment instigated on them
And after a while, the story dies down
The year 2021, The Anglophone crisis in Cameroon is topping 5 years since it began in 2016
Both separatist fighters and the government are yet to come to a dialogue compromise.
The result of the constant battle between the two leads to at least one person being killed every day in the English speaking regions of Cameroon
