Cameroon President Paul Biya has described separatists in the country’s restive Anglophone region as criminals and has vowed to halt their deadly attacks on the central African country.
His comments carried on national radio comes on the back of a new attack that killed two policemen in the region. Earlier in the week, four soldiers had been killed.
Overall, the number of security officials lost to the separatists attacks is ten. According to the president the signs are clear now as to what the separatists are intent on doing but that the country will put a stop to their activities.
“I learned with emotion of the murder of four Cameroonian soldiers and two policemen in the south-west of our country. I think that things are now clear to everyone. Cameroon is the victim of repeated attacks by a band of terrorists claiming to be part of a secessionist movement.
