Over 20 persons have been killed in Menka, Pinyin in Santa subdivision, after indiscriminate firing of guns at a crowd by the military at a Motel in that area.
The armed forces invaded the area, shooting and killing everyone around the vicinity. Those who fled the compound at that time only came back later on to find lifeless bodies all over the place.
According to what Cameroon Concord gathered, security forces invaded the motel where they were made to believe that Ambazonian fighters were hiding.
It consequently happened that they arrived the compound when the fighters had left as reports have it.
The victims of the shooting were all boys including an 18 year old girl. Others who got injured were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
In reaction to the killings, Barrister Agbor Balla, president of the Fako lawyers association said “Pinyin, Bali, Batibo our hearts are with you during this painful moment. Seeing images of more than 40 youths dead in 48 hours. We must stand up together as one and reverse this senseless war. The barrister said.
