The leader of the outlawed Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium has been visiting injured Southern Cameroons activists in the various medical facilities in the territory. Camereoon Concord News understands Barrister Agbor Balla was at St. Martin de Porres Catholic Mission Hospital, Njinikom in the Bamenda State and was reportedly motivated by the dedication of the doctors, nurses and Reverend Sisters handling the difficult situation.
Our Chief Correspondent in Bamenda hinted that Balla and his entourage were visibly touched by the case of Muhmara Njong, a 24 year old young man from Ndop, who was never part of the October 1 celebrations but got caught, brutalized and shot in the leg by troops loyal to the Yaounde regime. He was attending a family funeral before the army stormed the venue. Muhmara Njong told the leader of the Consortium that the soldiers got into their vehicle and drove on his bleeding leg.
The nurses revealed to the Agbor Balla delegation that, his surgery lasted several hours with the doctors removing veins from his left leg just to save the right leg. Barrister Agbor Balla told the wounded and medical staff that Anglophones must continue to unite and show strength and solidarity even in the face of pain and weakness, because together we are stronger and all our wounded brothers and sisters will return stronger.
