Anger has filled the hearts of the people of Guzang, a village in Batibo Sub Division, North West Region of Cameroon, after one of theirs, a lady in her 70s was allegedly raped and shot to death (execution style) by members of Cameroon’s defense forces.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, October 19.
Our findings revealed that the incident happened when the victim returned from having a bath and just when she was about applying lotion on the body, soldiers forced their way in and met her naked.
“The woman had just taken her bath and was in her room when the soldiers entered. many who saw them took cover and after sometime in her room, we heard gun shots. When they left, we rushed there only to see her naked body in the pool of her own blood. We are saddened and I feel like fighting back, enough is enough,” Acha, a native of Guzang said.
There has been no word from the authorites of the region including the Fon of Guzang, Mbahyamsig III on the incident.
This is coming weeks after a grand mother and a nursing mother were executed in Bali Nyonga and two others in Andek by government forces.
There are fears that these killings of unarmed civililians is rather escalating the consternation among the population of the embattled regions where a Separatist war is still ongoing.
