Players of the University of Buea Football club kidnapped on March 20th at the Campus Wembley stadium have all been released. We have gathered that the players who are twenty in total were found last night at check Point, a locality in the city of Buea. The students were severely tortured by their kidnappers physically with major wounds on their backs.

The head coach of the squad, Nicolas Asongu has confirmed that the players were released minutes after 8pm on March 21th but says they are in an unstable health condition.

Human rights activist, Barrister Nkongho Felix Agbor Balla also announced the release on his facebook page.

Their release was followed by multiple gunshots that were heard minutes after 10pm, probably to announce the presence of their kidnappers or to instill fear on the denizens of the city, for reasons best known to those behind the gunshots

It is alleged that the players were kidnapped by fighters of the Ambazonian Restoration Forces but Kamer Connect cannot independently verify the veracity of this.
