South West Region: Governor cancels Manyu SDO’s “outrageous” order

Journal du Cameroun | Okalai Bilai, Governor of the South West Region, Cameroon, has canceled an order from Oum Joseph, Senior Divisional Officer of Manyu division, which exhorted residents of several villages to relocate to safer neighborhoods.

In an initial release of December signed by the SDO, residents of several villages in Manyu were authorised to relocate to safer neighborhoods. The release had further stated that failure to do so, they will be as accomplices and perpetrators of attacks on security officers in the crisis stricken Anglophone region.

After the release was made public, many Cameroonians went amok over social media demanding where the country was heading to with such an outrageous move.

Several hours later, it was announced that the Governor of the South West Region, Okalai Bilai, had canceled the SDO’s order, terming it fake.
The Governor said the Manyu SDO did not consult him before making such a decision. He urged the people of the region to remain calm and continue to collaborate with the forces of law and order.

  1. Confusion reigns supreme in the camp of the enemy! Of course if the SDO was qualified, he would know that unilateral decisions as such in times of difficulties would cost him his job. And if his employers were qualified, they would know he has crossed the line and immediately fire him! With a string of unqualified people running the regime, I urge whoever is willing to pillage them to move in! One sees a situation similar to what happened to mobutu sessesseko towards the end of his barbaric reign in the Congo. When the human blood-drinking dictator realized that Kisangani and Kinshasa were not at par in the face of decision making, Nelson Mandela became an important commodity for his exit!

  2. ”The release had further stated that failure to do so, they will be as accomplices and perpetrators of attacks on security officers in the crisis stricken Anglophone region”. How can the gov’t claims to want to protect its civilians, and at the same time,asking those same civilians to quit their homes in a given period of time,else they would be considered as terrorist and would be treated as such.Is it not clear here that Biya is waging a war against all the anglophones,whom he considers as potential ”terrorist”?Of course the people have hit the instructions and have packed their bags and are already in Nigeria.Crime against humanity exhibit No.1.

  3. ”The release had further stated that failure to do so, they will be as accomplices and perpetrators of attacks on security officers in the crisis stricken Anglophone region” In a nutshell, the attacks perpetrated by the security officers on civilians is allowed,but not vise versa…..Simply put,all the so called security officers are trained to work for Biya….And if any of his security officers is attacked,he goes gaga and declares war on the airport against the anglophhone civilian population on the guise that he want to protect them and fight but the ”terrorist” who have been attacking his darling security officers……

  4. ”He urged the people of the region to remain calm and continue to collaborate with the forces of law and order”……Sorry,Mr.Okalia Bilai,the population is instead collabrating with the ”terrorist” to wipe out all that your security officers.U call people dogs and turn around and ask them to collaborate with u? how is that possible..We will slaughter all those security officers in our country…..

  5. My main concern is the use of the two terminologies, Fake and Cancel. Confusion really reigns amongst LRC administrators, and that’s why the country is in a confused state and has not direction. When emotions over ride reason, they can say, do and order their subordinates to do anything on the people they stupidly claim to protect. So Mr Governor, is the order Fake, or it was rightly issued by Manyu SDO, but you chosed to cancel it cos of its negative undertones. The people of Amba are setting the pace. You guys will die defending the regime and Biya. Force the world to execute your warrant of arrest.

  6. This only goes to show how desperate and inept this so called LRC govt has become. They have no clear strategy. Ordering people to leave their villages in Manyu to loot was their goal. They people will stay put and defend themselves in case of any aggression . The hundreds of LRC thugs who have met their end in Manyu is not yet ok. The worst is on their way

  7. For ever young

    The colonial useless governor is scared to be charged of war crimes if their rapist army shoot on innocent civilians like they previously, reasons is playing with words like population corporate his thugs in uniform, but will know dis moronic bastards don’t give fu*k bout us reasons he called us dogs, regardless of the outcome the wicked despotic leadership & all dis regime thugs will all stand trial for war crimes atrocities / killing committed against Ambazonia civilians

  8. Long live the International Criminal Court ( ICC ).

    Yes, the “outrageous” order was cancelled. However, ATTEMPTED crime against humanity is also punishable under the Rome Statute of the ICC.

    Many citizens had already fled to Nigeria before the order was cancelled.

    The case file of Biya et al. will be updated with attempted crime against humaity

    • “The Governor said the Manyu SDO did not consult him before making such a decision” ??

      It is immaterial whether the SDO consulted, the Governor, Rene Sadi or Biya.
      Okalia, Saii and Biya still bear individual and superior command responsibility for the attempted crime against humanity perpetrated by the SDO and by his subordinates.

  9. This is very embarassing that someone in authority did this ,for any country ,theres no excuse , he should be given his retirement papers immediately .

  10. The cracks are getting bigger and bigger

  11. Does Cameroon has force of law and order?

  12. Nothing has been cancelled.The SDO exposesd the governments’s intentions and in an attempt to hide their plans they said they have cancelled the communique.Trusting the Cameroon government is like trusting a snake.Cameroon is governmened by very wicked people.

  13. Mr. Okalai Bilai stamped his order but did NOT sign it. This is the document on social media. The thought itself cannot be cancelled from the mind – that is the bigger problem. SDO Oum was plotting to wipe out these villages – a criminal act.
