Anglophone Crisis: Cameoun delegation confirms 100+ death-toll to UN committee

A delegation from La Republique du Cameroun has admitted that about 100 lives were lost on October 1, 2017, when Ambazonians celebrated what they termed a restoration of their state. This was during a meeting with the UN committee fighting against torture. The delegation from Cameroon comprised officials from the ministries of justice and external relations, the national gendarmerie, and the Cameroon ambassador to the UN in Geneva. The meeting took place on November 8 and a report was published by the UN committee the following day, according to media reports.

The meeting discussed the current violent atmosphere in Cameroon including the Boko Haram insurgency in the Great North. The report disclosed that the Cameroonian delegation had pointed out that the unrest in Southern Cameroons began with teachers and lawyers voicing concerns which later degenerated into a 'fully-fledged violent separatist movement', causing the loss of lives and property. In the early aftermath of the massacre, government spokesman Issa Tchiroma had declared that only five persons had lost their lives including three prisoners who had attempted to escape as a result of the prison break in Kumbo.
