Nigeria’s neighbouring country, Cameroon on Sunday witnessed a bomb explosion that killed one person and wounded several others.
Reports obtained by CAPITAL POST on Monday, indicated that the bomb blast may have been carried out by the Anglophone separatist group that have been battling the Paul Biya administration for quite sometime now.
According to state television CRTV, the explosion occurred two hours after a procession of school children had taken place to celebrate Youth Day.
CRTV reported that in the town of Nkambe, an improvised explosive device concealed within a food stall detonated not far from the fairgrounds shortly after the conclusion of the parade.
Videos circulating on social media showed children dressed in blue school uniforms fleeing in various directions, while bystanders rushed to aid the injured victims.
“We have counted 40 wounded, of whom four are serious, and one death. The first suspicions are towards the separatists,” stated Adolphe Lele Lafrique, the governor of the northwest region, during a press briefing.
The region has been engulfed in violent clashes between armed separatist groups and the military since 2016.
During this period, President Paul Biya suppressed demonstrations by the English-speaking minority, who felt marginalized in a predominantly French-speaking nation.
