40+ police officers have had their heads cut off by African terrorists. It happened in The Congo. Officials reported that an ambush was conducted by the militia. The militants are known as the “Kamuina Nsapu.”
Congo government officials said that the militants attacked the police convoy which was moving from the cities of Tshikapa and Kananga in Central Kasai province. Six police officers were spared because they spoke the local Tshiluba language.
The militia fighters rarely carry firearms, they are often armed with machetes. They got away with cars and guns. Nkande Myopompa who is Kasai Governor said investigations were underway.
The Congo has been prone to large-scale violence which erupted in August when security forces killed the militia's leader. The United Nations has reported that more than 400 people have been killed and 200,000 displaced.
The Government made a report on Tuesday saying that 67 police officers and many soldiers had died in the clashes. Many of the dead have been dumped in mass graves.
United Nations has identified 10 of the alleged mass grave sites while seven others are being investigated. Unknown attackers in the Congo kidnapped two UN experts. The American and Swede were kidnapped last week, and they are still missing.
The Congo rebellion has posed the most serious threat to the rule of President Joseph Kabila.
The Kamwina Nsapu militia has been fighting Congolese forces since August, when security forces killed their leader. Approximately 400 people have been left dead due to the violence. Human rights groups and the UN have warned Congo's military against excessive use of force.
