The failed attack targeted a popular relaxation spot in the city. The Divisional Officer of the Meme division points an accusing finger at the secessionist fighters.
We had a narrow escape ! An improvised explosive device attack was foiled these days in the town of Kumba, Meme division, in the English-speaking Southwest region. In its 9 a.m. newspaper of August 2, 2022, Equinoxe television echoes the incident.
We learn that the bomb was hidden under a chair in a busy drinking establishment in the Buea Road district. If the worst could have been avoided, it is thanks to the action of an individual. Equinoxe Television reports that informed of the planned attack, this citizen alerted the central commissioner of the city of Kumba. Thus informed, the latter will set the security system in motion.
Elements of the defense and security forces led by the Divisional Officer of the Meme, Chamberlin Ntou’o Ndong will deport to the places which they will make all those who were there. And, delicately, they will defuse the device ready to explode. While rejoicing in this salutary action, the Divisional Officer Ntou’o Ndong indexes the separatist fighters.
“You know, we are professionals. We were able to neutralize this attack. You are going to explain to the people what you have seen this evening. We are professional. It is the separatists who are there in the bush who do not know what they are doing. We, on the other hand, we are professionals, ”reacted the land chief of the Meme at the microphone of Equinoxe Television.
Our colleague indicates that following the failed attack, the Divisional Officer of the Meme held a meeting with his collaborators. Objective: to review the security measures in his command unit.
