The fighters attacked the convoy in Muyuka, Fako Division, and in Mbalangi, Meme Division.

The increased attack saw the shattering of the windscreen of at least two vehicles of the gubernatorial convoy, while bullet pellets from the fighters, penetrated some of the vehicles in the convoy.

At least, 3 persons are currently receiving treatment, following minor, and major injuries sustained from the attack.

Casualties on the side of the Pro-Independence fighters could not be easily ascertained, giving the speedy nature with which the convoy drove pass the battle scene. However, military sources confirmed that many fighters were killed, during the shooting.

The gubernatorial convoy was en-route to the Kumba, where the Governor visited the gutted section of the Kumba District hospital, and received first hand information, of what transpired that fateful Monday February 11, morning.
