Gunmen have attacked a school in north-west Cameroon, abducting five teachers and several students.

Eyewitnesses said one student was wounded in the head during Wednesday’s attack on the high school in a village in Menchum Division. Reports said.

Some students say “the attackers told them never to set foot in the school again.”

A local official said “the army had been deployed to find the abducted students and teachers.” 

Separatist fighters have tried to force schools to close in the country’s two English-speaking regions.

The UN says more than 800,000 children are out of school due to the separatist conflict.
