Mayor of Lagdo among 15 passengers abducted in East Cameroon

The Mayor of Lagdo is among 15 other passengers abducted in the night of Thursday in a bus travelling from Garoua Boulai to Bertoua in the eastern region by heavily armed men, Cameroon Concord has learnt. As we earlier reported today, Cameroon government sources have hinted that the gun men were from rebel groups from the Central African Republic.  We understand Mama Abakai went to the East region to attend a funeral ceremony of the step mother of the the Sub-Prefect of Lagdo.

Local media reports say  Lagdo is in total confusion and sadness  as the inhabitants do not know the fate of their mayor and the other passengers in the bus. The proliferation of weapons in the Central African Republic has puts the Eastern Region of Cameroon in constant insecurity. Kidnapping of villagers are now common and rampant.
