Crisis in Ambazonia: Shock as GHS Fontem burns 0

Government High School Fontem located in the Ambazonian State of Lebialem was burned on Friday, November 24, 2017.  Cameroon Concord News gathered from sources close to the French Cameroun administrative official that flames consumed a good part of the administrative building.

According to French Cameroun news agencies, the fire broke out on the night of Friday around 23:00. An alert was issued to people who were quick to react to save the other buildings of the high school.

The flames were reportedly violent and reduced everything in the office apartment to ashes.  One of the teachers who spoke to the media about the incident observed that the computers, chairs, tables and documents were completely consumed by the fire.

The so-called Sous-préfet of Fontem who visited the scene on Saturday morning declared that the origin of the fire is still unknown for the moment, but an investigation was opened to take stock of the situation . Nevertheless, according to one of the school’s discipline masters, the fire was orchestrated by those who want the doors of the institutions to remain closed. Since the beginning of the Anglophone crisis, many schools in the Federal Republic of Amabazonia have been ravaged by flames.
