There have been cases of targeted killings in Oku Sub Division, Bui Division of the North West Region of Cameroon, a resident of the village in anonymity has told Mimi Mefo Info.
In his words “…two women were caught by a vigilante group and handed over to the military for summary execution. The crime of the women was that they could not speak the native Oku language and thus believed to be spies of the Anglophone militiamen called Ambazonia fighters.”
Our source further states that people believed to be loyal to the government of Cameroon have been offered ten thousand francs cfa each, as financial motivation to denounce and report any one that have a link with the ambazonia fighters to the military.
Other sources in Oku indicate that one suspected ambazonia militia camp has been bought over by authorities and the fighters secretly lay their arms while another ambazonia camp still in the village have turned down all financial and material temptations from the state for them to willingly surrender their arms and return to normal life.
This has increased tension in the village.
Inhabitants of Oku have been attesting that one of their sons Fai Yengo Francis has masterminded the project of stamping out Ambazonia fighters in the village that has brought untold misery on them.
Fai Yengo Francis is the president of the national commission for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR).
The commission created in December 2018 by president Paul Biya has as a main responsibility to disarm and reintegrate people that have taken arms against the state of Cameroon.
To the villagers, Fai Yengo Francis a former top civil administrator in President Paul Biya’s government and today president of DDR wants to set an example of the mission of the DDR commission by putting an end to the fight for the restoration of Ambazonia statehood in his native Oku village.
Contacted on phone by Mimi Mefo Info on Tuesday March 5th 2019, to comment on the accusations on the Commission of Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration, the President Fai Yengo Francis responded saying “…they are giving 10.000f for what? I know nothing about that and I am not aware of anything as such. It is not true.I live in Yaounde and therefore do not understand what is happening in Oku…”.
As the reporter insisted that the information of extra judicial killings in the process of fighting ambazonia boys in Oku has been given by the villagers, Mr Fai retorted “…please Mr.Journalist crosscheck your information .It’s not true”.
As the tension intensify in Oku village, villagers have fled to bushes for safety.
