The armed forces invaded the area, shooting and killing everyone around the vicinity. Those who fled the compound at that time only came back later on to find lifeless bodies all over the place.

According to what Cameroon Concord gathered, security forces invaded the motel where they were made to believe that Ambazonian fighters were hiding.

It consequently happened that they arrived the compound when the fighters had left as reports have it.

The victims of the shooting were all boys including an 18 year old girl. Others who got injured were rushed to the hospital for treatment.

In reaction to the killings, Barrister Agbor Balla, president of the Fako lawyers association said “Pinyin, Bali, Batibo our hearts are with you during this painful moment. Seeing images of more than 40 youths dead in 48 hours. We must stand up together as one and reverse this senseless war. The barrister said.

The minister revealed in a declaration which he made on 22 May 2018 that, the soldiers fighting in the two English speaking Regions of Cameroon, are doing their job with professionalism.

He debunked every information that is circulating about the misbehaviour of the security forces in the Anglophone Regions.

Reacting to the accusations against him, the US Ambassador said, his statements were misinterpreted by the press.

US ambassador accuses Cameroon of human rights violations http://cameroon-concord.com/headlines/us-ambassador-accuses-cameroon-of-human-rights-violations http://cameroon-concord.com/headlines/us-ambassador-accuses-cameroon-of-human-rights-violations US ambassador accuses Cameroon of human rights violations

The US ambassador to Cameroon has accused the Biya regime of gross human rights violations in fight against Anglophone separatists in the two English-speaking regions of the nation.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Ambassador Peter Henry Barlerin made accusation in a state on the website of the US embassy in Cameroon after meeting President Paul Biya on Thursday.

"On the side of the government, there have been targeted killings, detentions without access to legal support, family, or the Red Cross, and burning of the separatists, and burning and looting of villages," he has discussed with Biya.

"On the side of the separatists, there have been murders of gendarmes, kidnapping of government officials, and burning of schools," he has added.

The US diplomat however appreciated the historic decision by Cameroon to investigate an alleged case of torture by government forces. He lauded Defence Minister Joseph BetiAssomo's recent communique about eventual punishment for military men who tortured a suspected separatist to death recent.

"We continue to call on both sides to stop the violence immediately. I asked the President to use his leadership to encourage both sides to listen to each other. One cannot have a dialogue until both sides are willing to listen to the others point of view," he pointed out.

2018 election in Cameroon: Did US ambassador ask Biya to step? http://cameroon-concord.com/headlines/2018-election-in-cameroon-did-us-ambassador-ask-biya-to-step http://cameroon-concord.com/headlines/2018-election-in-cameroon-did-us-ambassador-ask-biya-to-step 2018 election in Cameroon: Did US ambassador ask Biya to step?

US ambassador to Cameroon has technically advised President Paul Biya to step down. Ambassador Peter Henry Barlerin made the revelation in a statement on the website of his embassy following a meeting with Cameroon's strong man.

{loadposition myposition}

 

The two men met in Yaounde on Thursday.

He said he told Mr Biya to think of leaving a legacy and proposed that he should follow the example of Nelson Mandela and George Washington.

"Finally, the President and I discussed upcoming elections. I suggested to the President that he should be thinking about his legacy and how he wants to be remembered in the history books to be read by generations to come, and proposed that George Washington and Nelson Mandela were excellent models" Ambassador Barlerin has revealed.

Mr Biya has been in power since 1982, apparently unwilling to hand over the mantle to someone else. By contrast, Nelson Mandela voluntarily stepped down as first black president of South Africa after his very first mandate.

George Washington in a similar spirit set the pace in US democracy by stepping aside after his two terms in office as first president of one of the most powerful nations in the world.

Cameroon looks forward to organising presidential election later in the year. Mr Biya is likely going to stand again after more than three and half decades in office.

Anglophone Crisis: Cameroon admits human rights abuses for first time  http://cameroon-concord.com/headlines/anglophone-crisis-cameroon-admits-human-rights-abuses-for-first-time http://cameroon-concord.com/headlines/anglophone-crisis-cameroon-admits-human-rights-abuses-for-first-time Anglophone Crisis: Cameroon admits human rights abuses for first time 

Cameroon's defence minister has admitted for the very first time that his men have violated human rights in their handling of the unrest in the English-speaking part of the nation.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Joseph BetiAssomo made the confession recently in Yaounde, days after a suspected Ambazonian separatist was tortured beyond repair by the armed forces.

Images circulating on social media featured a man being kicked, beaten, and rolled in mud by men in uniform.

While some sources believed the suspected separatist, popularly known as General, did not survive the torture, the minister stayed silent on the topic.

Mr Assomo revealed that the soldiers will be held accountable, as investigations are being carried out.

Cameroon has denied previous claims of the use of excessive force on Anglophone separatists and civilians. Several rights groups have criticised Mr Biya's approach to the unrest in Southern Cameroons.

Scores of civilians are believed to have been shot and killed, beaten to death, tortured to death in detention, and a lot more. Allegations that the Biya regime has all rubbished.
