The Mayor of the Bangem council, Ekuh Simon and his deputy Enongene Epie Manga, have been abducted by armed men suspected to be Ambazonian fighters.
Mayor Ekuh and his deputy are reported to have been taken hostage because they had been trying to convince youths of that area to take part in the 20th May celebrations.
In videos circulating on social media, the two men are seen seated in a forest with their hands tied behind their backs and guns pointing at them.
The abduction took place in the village of Ndibsi in Bangem subdivision, and the kidnappers said no one in that area should take part in the march past, else the two men would be killed.
