The chairman of the Ayah Foundation who doubles as spokesman for the Ayah family has outrightly condemned the brutal killing of at least five workers of the Cameroon Development Corporation, CDC, on Friday.
Ayah Ayah Abine took on his Facebook page to question whether death was the “only punishment,” reserved for the slain CDC workers who were simply at work, in search of means for survival.
At least five of them were shot dead at the CDC plantation by Separatists who claim the workers failed to respect ghost town, imposed ahead today’s 11th February celebration in Cameroon.
Separatists who have been fighting for an independent state called ‘Ambazonia’ believe that the National Youth Day is a non-event, as they have constantly used such events to urge the Yaounde regime to address their plights.
But Ayah Ayah thinks that attacking the CDC workers was unacceptable and inadmissible.
“The penalty for disrespecting ghost town?” He questioned.
He went on to write the following:
“Mimi Mefo Info reported yesterday that at least  CDC workers (parents most probably) were killed for disrespecting the ‘Amba’ imposed ghost towns. Going through a plurality of opinions vis-à-vis this tragedy, I was stunned by the amount of people who rather apportioned blame on DEFENSELESS victims, now lying in the mortuary, than on their STRONG murderers.”
“So, the ONLY penalty/’punishment’ the murderers of these victims had in store was to take away the victim’s LIVE? Really?”
“So the ‘punishment’ for disrespecting ghost towns is INSTANT DEATH? Really?”
“What has really happened to humanity Isn’t there anymore humanity left in us?”
“Has the oppression of the oppressor completely transformed us to the point wherein we’ve completely lost understanding of the sacredness of human life”
“Wasn’t there any other treatment (if necessary at all) that could have been employed by the authors of this abomination on these mothers/fathers but for the irreversible”
“What happens to their kids left behind”
“How can any right thinking person support such inhumanity to humanity for any reason whatsoever”
“And if we’ve come to this point wherein the lives of our own people has completely lost its SACREDNESS before our very eyes 👀 , how different are we from our oppressors,” he concluded.
Nearly 50 people have been injured from the Friday February 10th incident which took place in Tiko, South West Region of the country.
This is not the first time workers of the state’s number one employer are being attacked, injured or killed.
