Cameroon Concord News has learnt that 4 of the 71 British Southern Cameroonians arrested in Bamenda and taken to Yaoundé have died while being held prisoner by the Francophone army. Our informant hinted that the 4 were deliberately killed.
The Biya Francophone regime has blatantly refused to open up any investigation as recommended by many international human rights organizations including Amnesty International over the killings, rape and arrest of many Anglophone Cameroonians in Buea, Bamenda, Kumba and Kumbo.
A sister publication Cameroon Intelligence Report has identified Prime Minister Philemon Yang and nine senior military officers including the governors of the North West and South West regions in a report that accuses them of responsibility for the deaths of many Anglophone Cameroonians recently.
The Francophone army had run amok during the unrest in Bamenda, Buea, Kumba and Kumbo killing dozens of innocent people in summary executions. There is a huge military buildup in Bamenda, the regional capital of the North West region and many Anglophone civilians are now subjected to arbitrary arrest and their mobile devices confiscated.
