This crisis had witnessed the killing of a student Gendarme on Sunday at Nguti and at Talangai. Fighting erupted between government forces and the Restoration forces. The Gendarmerie Post came under heavy attack, situated along the Kumba - Mamfe Road. This attack was carried out by three heavily armed separatist fighters who have a deep hatred for the Gendarmerie elements,whom they say aren't supposed to be in Southern Cameroon's because it isn't a French territory.
These separatist fighters opened fire on the 18th of February and killed the young student Gendarmerie officer, Degoume Jean Claude. On the same day on Mamfe - Bamenda express, there was as well another confrontation ground between the forces of LA Republique Du Cameroun and the separatist fighters.
This confrontation was necessitated in order to dislodge the separatist fighters, who have mounted a control post. These separatist fighters were now doing control of vehicles and it resulted to hold up and traffic flow became to challenging. After the intervention of the military, traffic flow became more fluid and no casualties were recorded .
The confrontation in Talangai has orchestrated another vast movements of people moving out as refugees. These people are fleeing from the silly and huge inappropriate retaliatory attacks og the scouts of LA Republique Du Cameroun. Driven by malice , deep hatred for Anglophones and the vicious instructions of the President and the Minister Delegate in charge of Defence, Joseph Beti Assomo. The separatist fighters are fighting for a cause vastly supported by the population and this is frustrating the state scouts.
