Two armed bandits in the night of June 8th 2011 were shot dead in Bamenda Cameroon, by elements of the central police district. The two culprits were members of a gang on a wanted police list in the city. According to residence of the Foncha street area, panic gripped the neighbourhood when a fierce fire exchange ensued between the police and the criminals. Two of the victims dropped dead and were later identified as Akenji Pascal and Adakah Divine Fru. These boys in their early thirties had assorted identification papers, ammunitions and plenty of stolen cash on them. Speaking to the press shortly after the incident senior police constable Nsom Bende said they had received information of the fugitives and their operation through a tip up and then decided to confront. The police officers on duty were shocked by the gun skills of the criminals. Before their demise these fellows had wrecked many business firms in the city of Bamenda, one that fateful night carting away with 300,000fcfa. The suburbs of the Bamenda city is a no go zone these days at night but the police has vowed to wage a ceaseless war against banditry and fey mania.
