The remains of a woman, Odette who hails from Mejung village in Boyo division, and that of the president of Mejung youths in Bamenda have all been buried.
The burial took place Saturday, August 20, 2021 in Mejung village after the removal of the corpses from the Bamenda mortuary.
The two were shot and killed by gunmen on the night of August 7, 2021 at a bar in A2 Street Bamenda.
On that fateful night, gunmen on board a motor bike stormed a bar, took the owner who is husband to Odette. In an attempt to grip one of the armed men, and intervention from his wife and brother, they were gunned down.
Odette’s husband, fondly called Doctor, survived bullets wounds on his arm.
While in the funeral, traditional rites were performed and a curse placed on those responsible.
It was a coincidence that one of the armed men who killed madam Odette with a five months old pregnancy, hails from Mejung. He was also killed on Wednesday, August 17 at Nforya Bafut, when government forces stormed their camp and killed five of them specialized in kidnapping people in the city of Bamenda.
He was buried in the same village, same day as the pregnant woman.
