Separatist fighters attack security post in Cameroon
Government forces have stepped up surveillance operations in the restive Anglophone region of Cameroon.

Two officers were injured on Thursday (November 3rd) when separatist fighters attacked a Gendarmerie post in Foumbot, Noun Division in the West region of Cameroon, authorities said on Friday.

The fighters swarmed the security post in large numbers in an attempt to steal weapons, officials from the National Gendarmerie Headquarters in Yaoundé, the country's capital, said.

Authorities have named She Joseph as the suspect who they say is the commander of the separatist fighters who attacked the Foumbot security post.

According to reports, separatist fighters demanding an independent state known as Ambazonia, have resorted to targeting security posts and officers to steal weapons.

Meanwhile, government forces have stepped up surveillance operations in the restive Anglophone region of Cameroon.

Security personnel are placed on alert and warned not to move separately.
