Acquaintances of Bernard Meh, a resident of Mutengene, a small town in the restive South West region have been worried following his disappearance.
Picked up by a vigilante group in collaboration with the forces of law and order in the town ten days back, they say his whereabouts remains unknown.
“He was with his friends when the military officer came to him and informed him that his boss wanted to see him … They both climbed on a bike and drove off to the military camp…,” a source tells us.
The source who is close to Bernard’s family says their quest to know his whereabouts has met several dead ends.
“Since that faithful Wednesday, we have searched all the stations including the military camp but we can’t find him,” he explains.
Bernard’s family extended their search to neighboring towns; Tiko, and Buea, still to no avail.
He adds that “We tried to do some investigation about the military man who came to pick him up and we got the man’s name and number.”
This move however failed too as the officer in question is said to have threatened them.
“We are deeply worried because his phone too is not going through … His wife is four months pregnant,” our source laments.
Contrary to any belief that Bernard might have done something wrong, our source says “…he runs an off license and practices music…”
“…We just want to know his whereabouts…,” he pleads.
What has become of Bernard’s whereabouts like many others arrested within the context of the Anglophone crisis remains a mystery.
