Information claiming death of army general is “fake” – Cameroon army


Cameroon army Thursday dismissed as “fake” claims from armed separatists that they have killed an army general in an ambush in Southwest, one of the two troubled English-speaking regions of the country.

“Information relating to the death of General Bouba is circulating at this moment. While finding this joke of very bad taste, I beg you to consider this information as fake,” Colonel Didier Badjeck, spokesman of the Cameroon army said in a statement.

Separatists claimed that the army general was killed when they ambushed his convoy on Feb. 8 but the government “has been hiding the information.”

The armed separatist forces want the two regions, North West and South West to secede from the majority French-speaking nation and form a new nation called “Ambazonia.”

Clashes started in November 2017 and about 430,000 people have been displaced internally according to United Nations. Enditem

  1. So, the government says it is fake news and you believe them….why don’t they parade the general then. Let the General himself come out and address a Press Conference, afterall he is a General and should be used to the limelight. The General should come out and hold a Press Conference – say, guys here I am, I am not dead yet. At that point we’ll believe this government which has become so used to lying that people don’t know if to take them seriously anymore. They are so bereft of solutions/ideas for the ongoing war that innocent young men are dying in their droves in vain while old men are going around celebrating their 86th birthday – what an irony.
