The six hostages including two children were presented to the administrative and traditional authorities of the Barki and Darwi II villages on Tuesday.
An assault launched this weekend, with elements of the 5th Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) in Meiganga, resulted in the release of six hostages.
These six people, including an 8 year old girl and a boy of 13, had been retained in captivity for 6 weeks in the forest.
The hostages were kidnapped by gunmen at a place called Darwi, near Meiganga in the Mbéré division in the region of Adamawa. Their tormentors demanded 8 million CFA francs.
According to information provided by the people, Cameroonian security forces launched the assault that led to their release.
Part of the region of Adamawa, which borders the Central African Republic, is the target of acts of banditry attributed to gangs, rampant on both sides of the border.
