The US Embassy in Yaounde, Cameroon’s capital, has described the killing of a wardress in Pinyin, Mezam Division, North West Region as a horrific and aggravated murder.
Ayafor Florence who works at Bamenda Central Prison, had travelled for a funeral in her native pinyin village on Saturday September 28, 2019 and was kidnapped on her way to Bamenda. Her body parts were only found on September 29, on the road.
“We extend our deepest condolences to her surviving family” US Embassy said in a press release.
“We urge the authorities to undertake a thorough and balanced investigation of this and other atrocities and bring the perpetrators to a fair and transparent trial” the statement added.
The embassy went on to call on stakeholders in the Anglophone crisis to “enter into an open-ended dialogue without preconditions”.
The prison wardress’ murder comes as one of several extra judicial killings resulting from the armed conflict.
Ambazonian fighters who were accused by government, have denied responsibility for the killing.
