On Tuesday morning, a priest of the Catholic Church, Father Elvis Bangsi, as well as three teachers from the Catholic school in Kembong, a village located in the South-West region, were injured by armed men posing as separatists.
Witnesses, cited by journalists in the region, also report that the attackers identified themselves as separatists who had come to ensure that classes did not resume.
According to other information, the same village had already been attacked on Monday September 25 and around ten people had been kidnapped. The separatists are reportedly demanding the payment of a ransom of 50 million FCFA for their release.
It should be noted that this attack took place less than 24 hours after the kidnapping of ten neighborhood chiefs by armed men also presenting themselves as separatists. These neighborhood leaders were reportedly kidnapped for advocating the resumption of classes in the region.
