Bamenda: Heavy jail terms looms over man for raping student

Journal du Cameroun | An uncertain fate awaits Ndifon Tih Asang at the Bamenda Central Prison after he was whisked-off into detention for allegedly raping a student in Kedjom Keku, in the North West Region of Cameroon.

Tih Asang will be appearing in Court on Monday, November 27, 2017, to answer for the allegations leveled against him. Heavy jail terms await him if found guilty by the law court.

According to information gnarled, Tih Asang had tricked the young girl into following him in a nearby bush under the pretext of giving her a concoction to go and remove a certain charm, which the accused said, had been planted in the student’s compound to harm both the girl and her parents.

When they got to the bush, Tih Asang reportedly harvested some leaves and mixed them with other concoction and gave the student to eat. After eating the concoction, the student reportedly fell asleep and Tih Asang had canal knowledge of the student and then abandoned her in the bush.

When the students, finally woke from her slumber, she called the mother and told her what had happened. The mother solicited the help of some youths in the village who started searching for the student and later discovered her in the bush bleeding.

The girl was rushed to the hospital where the doctor who attended to her confirmed that she had been raped.

The girl then recounted her ordeal in the hands of her ‘rapist’ to her parents who later called in elements of the forces of law and order.

With the help of the anti-gang, Tih Asang was arrested and handed over to the Tubah Gendarmerie officers, who later transferred him to the Bamenda Central Prison pending his trial on November 27.

According to other information gleaned, Tih Asang is a father of two and his wife is presently pregnant with his third child.

  1. The reading public is better served if news reporting were left to those with a modicum of training.

    A mother whose girl recovers from a state of coma in the bush, finds her way home, narrates her ordeal by herself would not go looking for village youths to seek help in searching for her child standing in front of her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Your second paragraph is logically correct Mr. Dinga although the story above does not make that claim. According to the report “When the students, finally woke from her slumber, she called the mother and told her what had happened. The mother solicited the help of some youths in the village who started searching for the student and later discovered her in the bush bleeding.” My interpretation here is that a cell phone was in play rather than the girl finding here way home to narrate her ordeal to mom.
      Nevertheless, this report makes for painful reading and we could benefit from better trained reporters which is what I believe was your intended point.

      • I am usually loathe to linguistic inflation, convinced that every letter should earn its place in a word just like each word earns a place in the sentence. If you find no fault with the reporter’s verbiage, I most certainly do.

        • As already noted in my comment above, the “report makes for painful reading and we could benefit from better trained reporters”.

          On the other hand, I am certain that you misunderstood (maybe a result of the reporter’s verbiage?) the report based on your comment: “A mother whose girl recovers from a state of coma in the bush, finds her way home, narrates her ordeal by herself would not go looking for village youths to seek help in searching for her child standing in front of her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”. No be so?

  2. The Forces of lawlessness and disorder of LRC who raped UB students should also be brought to book

  3. Is that the prison? What a shame?

  4. I knew we will soon start having copy cats , mimicking the savagery of Pinguiss and his confederate of rapists , who descended on our girls in Buea. A warrant of arrest must be issued for the arrest of all the Bir thugs who raped our girls and taught young men that rape is good!

  5. Anglo Saxon heritage in full display . What a shame asia to the girl . She would have been safe outside that god forsaken region .
