Kidnap risk increases in Cameroon


Secessionist groups in the anglophone regions of Cameroon have conducted a growing number of attacks on security forces since the last quarter of 2017.  These come on top of a series of protests and strikes since 2016 related to perceived marginalisation by the government of President Paul Biya. The emergence of kidnapping as a secessionist tactic should be of concern to foreign businesses.
 
This podcast covers:
  • The general security threat to businesses in Cameroon
  • The current state of the kidnapping threat in relation to the anglophone secessionist struggle
  • The kidnapping threat outlook for businesses operating across Cameroon
