There is shock and consternation at the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintergration Center, DDRC in Bamenda, North West Region of Cameroon following the shooting to death, of two repentant fighters. The incident reportedly took place on Sunday September 25, 2021.
Though events leading to the shooting remain unclear, sources say the incident happened at a renowned hotel at the Old Town neighborhood in Bamenda.
“They shot three, two are dead and one is under intensive medical care,” a source told MMI.
Reports say anger could be seen written all over the faces of the other ex-fighters — with no one “able to tell what may be running through their minds.” The government has not yet issued a statement.
The center was created some years back by the Biya regime to accommodate former Separatist fighters who have dropped their weapons.
Many however have criticised the initiative, stating that it fails to adequately meet the needs of repentant separatist fighters. Others think a DDR centre can only be created after the bloody conflict in the country’s English-speaking regions has ended.
