Human Rights Lawyer and Peace Crusader, Barrister Tamfu Richard has promised to drag Chief Ewome Eko John aka Moja to Court.
Barrister Tamfu has expressed the desire to make the ruler and soldier pay for his numerous acts of torture and assaults against civilians in Buea and other parts of the South West Region of Cameroon
He says his attention has been brought to a number of videos wherein “Chief Moja Moja is seen intimidating, torturing, maiming and assaulting innocent Civil Cameroonian citizens for no good reason. To the best of my knowledge, this guy is military personnel of the Cameroon Army and a Chief of a certain village.”
“We can not continue to seat back watching this guy unleashing terror and acts of violence on innocent civilians with impunity,” stated Barrister Tamfu.
He adds that in a recent video he saw Chief Moja Moja kicking a young man into his car boot. “It is not clear what awaits this young man nor certain that the young man is still alive or dead.”
Barrister Tamfu: “I will be leading a criminal complaint against this Chief Moja Moja in the days ahead with other Human Rights Advocates and Lawyers. It is more than time we make him pay for his crimes before a Court of Law. I will teach him that No one is above the Law in Cameroon and that No one can take the laws into their hands as he does with all impunity.”
The responsibility of the Republic of Cameroon in protecting the life and property of its citizens is put in jeopardy by Chief Moja Moja, Barrister Tamfu notes.
Moja Moja who is being described as a ‘licensed’ human rights violator and xenophobe, late last year targeted a 30-year-old pregnant woman, Antoinette Kongnso Gohla, who, alongside her two children, was dragged from her husband’s house in Sandpit Buea, tortured, paraded along the streets and later handed to Gendarmes.
He has on several occasions accosted, tortured, and disfigured many young people in Buea – under the pretext of “huntings Separatists fighting for an independent state called Ambazonia.
Cameroonian authorities have not taken any actions against the traditional ruler.
