A training session of the Eagles of Carthage scheduled for Thursday morning, turned very short due to terrorist threats in Buea, the city in which the team is housed.
Tunisia’s scheduled clean-up session after the match against Mali was canceled due to terrorist threats. Gunshots were even heard yesterday in Limbe. “Members of the Tunisian Football Federation decided today to cancel the clean-up session of the Tunisian selection scheduled following the match against Mali at the African Cup of Nations. The Confederation of African Football and the local authorities of Limbé would have asked the members of the Tunisian delegation to return to their place of residence because of terrorist threats,” wrote our colleague Kawarji, a Tunisian journalist.
It should also be noted that threats were issued before the start of AFCON 2021. Anglophone terrorist groups are threatening to attack and have sent threatening letters to Group F teams (Tunisia, Mali, Mauritania and Gambia ). In the middle of the CAN last Tuesday, opposition senator Henry Kamende was killed in Bamenda, another English-speaking city that does not host the CAN.
