Judith, popularly known as “Ma Ju” was the lone civilian victim in an explosion orchestrated by separatist fighters in Cameroon’s South West region.
On Tuesday, September 5, 2023, Ambazonian fighters detonated an improvised explosive device, IED, targeting a military patrol truck.
The truck was overturned but casualties were not immediately known. Hours later, news began to filter out that Judith, the lone civilian died in the attack.
CNA gathered that the lady was on her way to the West region, Dschang, neighboring Alou in Lebialem, where the incident took place.
The military personnel in the truck decided to give her a lift, before being attacked on their way.
