Authorities have confirmed the death of one person and several others after an explosive device went off in the restive North-West region as the students were marching in commemoration of the country’s youth day in Nkambe town, Cameroon.

The regional governor, Adolphe Lele L’Afrique said Anglophone separatist fighters were suspected to have staged the attack.

Attacks against students, teachers and educational institutions are common in Anglophone Cameroon.

The incident is seen as an attempt by the separatists to enforce a boycott of education, which they imposed over seven years ago.
