The remaining four hostages kidnapped last week in a school in Cameroon's North-West region capital of Bamenda have been released, journalist Peter Tah reports

More than 80 people, majority of them students at Bamenda's Presbyterian Secondary School, were taken on 4 October by gunmen.

The government has accused separatists in the English-speaking region of being behind the kidnapping.

The Anglophone separatists have, however, denied they were involved.

The secessionist movement took up arms last year to demand independence for the North-West and South-West regions - the two English-speaking regions in a country where French is the most widely spoken official language.
