Cameroon Concord has learned that 8 soldiers from Cameroon's Rapid Intervention Unit (BIR) in its French acronym have been killed in overnight fighting in Manyu on Monday, December 4th 2017.
AmbaNews, an activist news platform confirmed that two separate incidents in the Local Government Area of Eyumojock left a total of eight soldiers from La Republique du CameroUn dead.
One incident took place at Babong village where a group calling itself Tigers claimed responsibility for TAKING OUT four BIRs. A serious gun battle had ensued between the BIR soldiers and the Tigers (one of the defence groups, fighting for the restoration of the independence of Ambazonia). The Tigers succeeded to bring them all down. In a private message from the commander of the Tigers to the AmbaNews news room, he recounted the operations and tactics his group used and then ended; "we brought down four homeland invaders".
In a second encounter which occurred almost simultaneously, an identical number of four soldiers were brought down trying to gain access into Akwaya South from AgborKem village.
In both operations, the weapons of La Republique'an armies were taken away.
Both stories have been confirmed by a top Ambazonian military officer in Mamfe currently serving La Republique du CameroUn.
