Two military officials and a civilian have died in the Mezam Division of the North West Region following several gun exchanges between the military and some unknown persons. A military officer who confirmed the dead of two soldiers will not give us names and other details.
So far information circulating in Bamenda which we cannot independently confirm following the time of the incident say they were killed in two separate locations one in Bafut and another in Nkwen by gunmen who were on a bike.
The Gendarme shot in Bafut is said to have been on duty at a check point in the village before his death while the soldier in Nkwen was shot while on regular patrol. After the shooting we gathered that there was an immediate reply from the military with the exchange claiming the life of a woman who will later be confirmed dead by the military hospital at up station.
From the very early hours of the morning of Wednesday November 8 till at 5am gunshots could still be heard around Nkwen mile two areas where the soldier and the women were killed by bullets.
Our sources in the military say the bullet seen to be coming from the unidentified killers is not locally made but quiet close to what is being used by the military.
It is the second attack on soldiers after that of Jakiri Monday November 6 since the start of the crisis in the North West and South West region.
Though no one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, many have been quick to say it remains connected to the Anglophone crisis. From common law  lawyers and teachers strike, the school boycott calls, mass street protest, explosions and now shooting of soldiers, they say the problem may just be starting
The security says they have stepped up in other to be able to protect city dwellers and their property.
