The National Secretary General of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) party in Cameroon, has outrightly condemned the abduction of its female Member of Parliament.
Honorable Wainanchi Honorine Nchabi, a Social Democratic Front (SDF) member of Parliament in Boyo, North West Region of Cameroon was on Sunday February 5, 2023 kidnapped by Separatist fighters — and taken to an unknown destination.
Reports say Hon Wainanchi was abducted on the Bambui road in Mezam Division of the restive North West Region.
She was returning from her constituency when the armed men swoop on her, MMI has learned.
Speaking to the media, the SDF SG, Maître Adeline Djomgang criticised “targeted attacks on the SDF” and urged Separatists to hold the Yaounde government to account.
“We the SDF are not in power, we didn’t cause the war, they should go after the government which is in power. They can come for the SDF when we are in control. And when the time comes, we will stand for federalism and not decentralisation,” stressed Maître Djomgang.
Several SDF MPs have been targeted with at least one of them shot death by Separatists. Djomgang says the attack on SDF party officials must stop.
“It seems they are gradually taking out all SDF big wigs and deliberately sparing their CPDM counterparts, which to me is not right,” she said.
Unconfirmed reports say Hon Wainanchi’s abductors are demanding for 36 million FCFA in exchange for her freedom.
The National Assembly is yet to react.
