Attack on opposition leader
GUNMEN have abducted the leader of Cameroon’s main opposition party, John Fru Ndi, from his house.
Nkedze Emilia, a senator of the Social Democratic Front party, said the men were heavily armed with weapons.
“When they got to his house, his guards resisted and one of them was shot on the leg,” he said. “But our leader was forced into a car and taken to an unknown destination.” The senator said the wounded guard was being treated in hospital. “We are afraid,” he said.
It is the second kidnapping of Fru Ndi this year. In April he was abducted by members of Cameroon’s separatist movment but was later released.
