One of the Honorable members of Parliament from Ngoketunjia Divison of the war-ravaged North West Region says armed robbers are responsible for the killings and kidnapping of civilians in the two Anglophone regions.
The Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement, CPDM party MP made the revelation last Thursday, July 28, 2022, during the seventh session of the North West Regional Assembly.
“Let me tell you, they killed senators, these are not Ambas, these are armed robbers who are pretending to be Amba fighters. There are no armed robbers in Yaounde, Douala, and the other big cities of Cameroon. They have all moved to the North West and South West regions. We must do everything to eliminate these dangerous elements so that we can develop our communities,” Njingum Musa told the North West Regional Assembly.
The Parliamentarian’s outing came at a time when Separatists who are fighting to restore an independent state called “Ambazonia” have come under increasing fire for the massive killing of civilians.
Njingum Musa’s declarations, however, contradicts some credible human rights organisations that have also documented civilian killings carried out by separatist fighters as well as government forces.
They say many more unarmed civilians will continue to die needlessly as the violence continues unchecked.
