The two Soldiers who were stationed at the Estate were ambushed by Ambazonia fighters while in the yard at the Managers House Wednesday afternoon, CNA has gathered.
It is reported that the third Soldier on duty has gone “missing” since the incident; since he has not yet reported at their base in Ekondo Titi.
The Ambazonia fighters are said to have first attacked a convoy which was transporting oil from Illoani Oil Mill. Reports say the attackers took them unawares in Yaoundé Quarter, a village between Mofaka village and Mbonge.
During the attack, two CDC workers were wounded including one truck driver and his assistant.
