The truth has finally surfaced about the 2018 viral video which showed the shooting to death of women and children by unknown soldiers. In a thorough investigative model by BBC Africa Eye, using google map, and other video forensic techniques, four Cameroon soldiers were identified as killers of the women and children and have been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.

The Cameroon government had earlier tagged the viral video as “fake news” and an attempt to discredit the government, whereas the incident truly occurred in a village in the far north of Cameroon.

The gory footage which runs below, shows the victims being hooded and shot. They were accused of involvement with Boko Haram Islamist group which was terrorising northern Nigeria and neighbouring border communities.

The victims, who included a baby tied to one of the women’s backs, were then marched down a dusty road, blindfolded and shot 22 times.

Video forensics of the footage has helped in sentencing five out of the seven soldiers who were tried by a military court in Yaoundé, Cameroon, the soldier who filmed and shared video of the killing, was sentenced to two years, while two, were absolved of blames and therefore acquitted.
