The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has expressed its dissatisfaction with the killings in the North West and South West regions.
In a February 21st 2020 statement on Cameroon, the WFP says it “is disturbed by news of the killing of a beneficiary by military men at the site of a food distribution near Ekona, in the South West Region of Cameroon”.
“We condemn the breach of humanitarian space by armed groups and security forces in the crisis affecting the South West and North West regions of Cameroon,” WFP says.
“Our sympathies and condolences are with the bereaved family,” said WFP West Africa Regional Director Chris Nikoi.
Nikoi went ahead to “urge respect of humanitarian operations and the protection of civilians by all parties.”
A number of other bodies have also condemned similar acts with one of the latest being the February 14 massacre that left more than 35 dead.
