Consternations gripped inhabitations of Kumba when the police rescue unit invaded the home of a Common Lawyer, Verine Ekole, to chase away a mysterious swarm of bees, which had taken over the residence of the advocate.
Before seeking the intervention of the police, the legal counsel tried unsuccessful to cause the bees to leave his domicile.
At one moment, the man of law vacated his house, hoping to return after the bees would have left to no avail.
He then decided to alert the police rescue unit as the bees engulfed his compound.
As the vehicle of the fire fighters arrived the lawyer’s Sonangfang residence, scores of commercial bike riders watched in awe from a distance how the soldiers battled the bees.
The scene has provoked public discussions as to the origin of the mysterious bees.
Rumours are already making the rounds that the appearance of the bees is not unconnected with the ongoing Anglophone crisis and what has become known today as the ‘Amba Bees.’
Barrister Verine Ekole is one of the lawyers defending the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, PCC, Rt. Rev. Samuel Fonki Forba and Catholic Bishops in court.
In the last Court appearance relating to a suit at the instance of a Consortium of Parents, the man of law was one of those who accompanied the Lead Counsel for the clergy, Barrister Eta Bissong Jr in praying the Court to dismiss the case following the absence of the complainants during the hearing.
