Q: "The poachers responsible for the elephant deaths were speculated to come from the neighboring country of Cameroon"

A: It might make more sense if you remove "neighboring" for a second.

"come from the country of Cameroon"

The "neighboring" in this sense refers to Cameroon being Gabon's neighbor.

"The neighboring country to Cameroon"

"to" instead of "of".
