Anglophone crisis: Gov’t spy phone chats to capture secessionists

The government of Cameroon has embarked on a phone spying mission to capture secessionists and those fuelling the current crisis rocking the country’s English speaking regions.

Southwest Governor Bernard Okalia Bilai
The revelation was made by Bernard Okalia Bilai, Governor of the South West Region earlier this week while evaluating the security situation of the region. Governor Okalia said he already has 10 names of people who continue to disturb the peace of the region. To him, government’s plan to tap private conversations of the population is to fish out all those who promote the crisis secretly.

“We are considering arresting all those involved in the uprising. There are some people who pretend to be disturbed about the situation but are backing secessionists behind the scenes”.

While reacting to alleged plans to ruin school examinations in the region, the governor said more troops will be deployed to the regions to maintain order. To him, the South West region cannot be demilitarised when people still carry out ghost towns, burn public property and intimidate the population.

Recently, Cameroon’s secondary education minister, Jean Ernest Massena Ngalle Bibehe visited the region to re-echo government’s call for schools resumption. He insisted that end of year examinations will run smoothly despite the fact that classes have not been effective. Minster Bibehe said his ministry would do everything to ensure that end of course examinations in the region run efficiently.

  7. It is sad to find our senior administrators talking , acting desperately in situations that could be handle with reasoning . I pray to live a situation where administrators will understand that everyone just need a better country because the mentality given their utterances and actions are highly questionable. We need to redesign our educational system base on our values. what we have now is the manifestation of a school of thought that is alien to our values.” Beat him arrest him jail or shoot him” Not our values., not a language from one Cameroonian to another even if we differ in views
