Following the publication of a report on what reportedly happened in Ngarbuh in Donga Mantung division in the North West of Cameroon by the government, some Cameroonians say the report is still wanting.
However, the military has been pointed as having committed the atrocity.
One of those who criticize the report is Barrister Tamfu Richard.
The lawyer says the Ngarbuh report lacks essential elements.
Here is what he has written.
1- How many people were killed in total?
2- How many houses were destroyed?
3- Where are the survivors and what means of subsistence do they have?
4- Where is the guy who was arrested supposedly sending images to Human Rights Watch?
5-Report says the vigilantes will be searched for, why? The SDO of Donga Mantung should release the name of those who create and finance them. What happens to the SDO & Governor who visited the area and told lies?
6- The Ngarbuh massacre led to more conflict between Fulanis and locals, what is put in place for reconciliation?
7- Governor announced a presidential commission on February 27 why does the report talk of 17.
8- Will another commission be created to access losses, damages, deaths etc for compensation?
9-What is the legal status of the vigilantes?
10- How do you convince me that this is not a pattern of military excesses?
11-The evidence is flagrant, that trial should not drag on like that of the soldiers who killed mother and children some years back in the North.
12-Can we revisit all the reports of massacres in the NW/SW published by NGOs?
Bar. Tamfu concludes that if human rights watch did not say they have satellite report images, the report should have been different.
Other Cameroonians are calling for the dismissal of some members of government who sit in Yaounde and give orders to the military to kill in the Anglophone regions.
