Cameroonian soldiers have freed a kidnapped senator of the ruling party, plus several other hostages, in an operation in the country’s English-speaking North-West region, the army says.
It should be recalled that Senator Elizabeth Regina Mundi and her driver were kidnapped in Bamenda last month.
She was ambushed at Foncha Street in Bamenda and taken off her Prado Jeep to an unknown destination. Mundi is a member of President Paul Biya’s ruling party.
Army spokesman Cyrille Atonfack Guemo said in a statement that a dozen separatist fighters were killed, many were injured, and others fled during the Monday night raid.
The Ambazonian Defence Forces (ADF), a separatist group, claimed responsibility for the attack.
The rebel group is one of several fighting for independence in the North-West and South-West Anglophone regions.
