The Member of Parliament for Bafut and Tubah Sub Divisions in the North West region has decried a recent military attack on the Bafut Palace. In a letter to President Paul Biya, Honorable Fusi Naamukong said the attack was a second of it’s kind.
Among the damages recorded he said was the destruction of “eight Queen Mothers’ houses, shattering three ancestral houses, looting property” among other things.
” The diabolic act has vandalized the entire population, sending it’s occupants into the bushes” he added. The Head of State he requested in the letter “should bring the culprits of the act to book, noting that the it had been envisaged that the palace was to become a UNESCO heritage site”.
The Bafut Palace attack it should be recalled is not the first of it’s kind as rights group, Center for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa, CHRDA months back said hundreds of villages had been razed to the ground in the conflict-hit Anglophone regions of the country. It is hoped that the National Dialogue will address the situation on the ground.
