Stampede In South West Schools: Governor Dispels Rumours Of Attack

Cameroon Tribune | The chief executive of the Region called the press to clarify the situation.

Rumours of attacks on schools in the South West blew across the parts of the Region yesterday morning sending some pupils and students fleeing from school premises in Meme and Fako Divisions. Such areas affected by the stampede included Kumba, Limbe, Muyuka and Buea.

In the face of the stampede, the South West Regional Governor, Bernard Okalia Bilai, issued a communique in the afternoon of yesterday (15 January, 2018) urging parents, pupils, students, teachers, business community and the entire population to stay calm against manipulations by unknown persons. He called on the population to avoid panic caused by intoxication aimed at manipulating public opinion and creating an atmosphere of insecurity around educational establishments.

The Governor further reassured the public that the administration with the collaboration of Defence and Security forces is, like in the past, taking all necessary measures to ensure the protection of pupils, students, teachers and school infrastructures. The Governor expressed his conviction of the positive collaboration of school administrators, parents, teachers and local opinion leaders to stand up as one person to refuse to remain victims of unhealthy manipulation and intoxication.

In the same vein, the killing of a military man even though as passenger aboard a public transport vehicle on the highway at Kwakwa village in Mbonge Sub-Division in Meme Division last Saturday contributed to fuel the rumour of attack on schools. Governor Okalia Bilai accompanied by General Melingui Nouma Donatien who is Commander of 21st Motorised Infantry Brigade based in Buea, spoke to the press yesterday afternoon in his Office to dispel stories of attacks on schools.

The rumour had triggered parents to rush to collect their children from schools. In the case of Buea, schools like Bilingual Grammar School Molyko refused to open their gates to parents who crowded the gate.

The school authorities and the administration advised the parents to wait until school closes normally at 3pm. Security forces formed a ring around the school to prevent intruders from penetrating into the campus with the pretext as parents to create havoc. The school closed normally at 3pm and the students went home without any major incident reported yesterday .

  1. The problem in using such a hoax is that if /when the real danger strikes, people shall have become so inured that they fail to react appropriately! Yesterday Hawaii had such a false alert about an imminent ballistic attack; fortunately level-headed thinking and action prevailed to minimize damage from stampede.

  2. The people want to elect their governors and mayors who will be accountable to them.
    ENAM appointees who are only interested in pleasing the president instead of addressing the needs of the people is part of the problem.
    If you are a colonialist and you want to control a nation forever create a school of Corruption called ENAM and you will destabilize the nation for good.
    What is ENAM? How do the Canadians, Australians, Germans, South Africans, American Run their countries without administrators from a corrupt school.
    The hypercentralization of government with appointed administrators who respect not their subjects is at the root of our problems.
    The people do not trust this governor and his intentions.

  3. No one should listen to the colonial governor and DOs. School season in Ambaland is not now. How many French Cameroons students are jobless and poorly trained

  4. How does this affect Biya? These secessionists are either dumb, stupid or cowards. Instead of taking your fight to Biya, you are disturbing the peace of the same people you claim you want to liberate. You are preventing Anglo kids from going to school while the Franco kids and yours are going to school. In this your madness, the only people you are destroying are the Anglos. This will not stop Biya from going to his home in Switzerland and having fun with taxpayer’s money. It is obvious that Biya has sent his kids to ENAM to study administration and take over from him. Instead of joining the rest of the country to form one strong opposition to prevent this from happening, you are there destroying the lives of Anglophone kids. FOOLISH PEOPLE. YOU WILL NEVER SUCCEED WITH THIS YOUR MADNESS.

    • @ bobjazz

      And you shall never succeed with this your La Republique inertia moron. Which actions have the rest of the country taken to stop Biya? How many elections have been organized and he’s always the winner? It’s easy to run your mouth like a river cataract condemning others. Continue to sit back and lick your vomit you gargoyle.

      • Disregard the comments of that filthy, semi illiterate bastard from Mbouda who suffers from acute low self esteem to the extent of denying his Bamilike ancestry.

        • Mayanka76 son of Nyangi. Telling lies will never convince anybody. Only illiterates or semi literates call others illiterate or semi literate. The wise and literates never do that. It looks like your line is to call any sensible and wise Anglophone who disagrees with your foolishness a Francophone, a Biya supporter or an illiterate. I am a proud Anglophone from Santa same village as your former Anglophone prime minister Achidi Achu. If you don’t like Cameroon because some people speak french, you are free to join Nigeria. Read my lips: Cameroon will never ever be separated by barbarians who call themselves secessionists.

        • @bobjazz

          Atanga Nji too is from Akum if you thought announcing your Santa heritage gives you any edge. Protect your Achidi Achu interest at the selfishness and detriment of your people but a time will come when we will pick out all the traitors and make them suffer a violent end. Read my lips!!!

      • You secessionists are wasting your time. They have already got your leader and he is either dead or being given café every morning and night before he sleeps. You will be next. Long live Cameroon. If you don’t love Cameroon, you are free to join Nigeria. Cameroon will never ever be separated by barbarians.

        • if you dont love ambazonia you are free to stay in lrc,or even join central afrique nonsense

        • You this idiot. You are a proud” short sense man” from Santa without no payed roads. Your uncle Atang a Nji has dished out his stupidity to you. Manyu boost one of the best and expensive tarred road and elegant fly over yet they are fighting against the injustice metted on English speaking Cameroonians by the biya junta. See how short sense your likes are

        • AG which people are you talking about? I am not one of your people. I don’t support barbarism. The Queen and the French man’s language cannot separate me from my fellow Cameroonians. My country will never be determined by what some imperialists did for their national interest years ago.

          @ Rethink, you guys are a bunch of confused idiots being manipulated by some con men who have now been arrested. The fight against marginalization of Anglophones by the Biya regime was started by us. You hatemongers hijacked it. I have noticed that each time you can’t defend yourselves you link us the wise Anglophones to the Biya regime. We are not Biya’s supporters but we love our Francophone brothers and sisters and will never separate from them because of a white man’s language. Un point un trait.

    • if you are successful why dont you help others to succeed? since you are fine you want to sleep on others future,we must destroy to build,our forefathers sacrificed for us ,now you guys are enjoy it to the detriment of the masses.why is this name Ambazonia giving you guys nightmare?

      • Africans For Donald Trump

        ambazombie does not give anyone nightmare.
        We just wonder how people could be so delusional, naive and stupid. The delusional republic of ambazombie does not exist! The people of the North West and South West of Cameroon are part of The Republic of Cameroon.
        What sacrifice are you talking about? Your forefathers voted to join The Republic of Cameroon!
        You must be extremely stupid to tell a Cameroonian from the NW or SW that if they do not love ambazombie they should stay in the Republic of Cameroon!
        Duh… the North West and South West province of The Republic of cameroon are real places and therefore can not be part of the delusional republic of ambazombie which has no physical realm and is not on any map in this world!
        Naivety and stupidity landed sickseku tabe and cohorts in abduction

  5. What were the children doing in that shithole classroom? The colonial governor sent from Yaounde should pack now…….

          The delusional ambazombies are so naïve and stupid that they believe the path to secession is by abolishing education for the poor of the north west and south west. What a bunch of coward terrorist conmen!

        • Africans For Donald Trump

          AG,

          Unfortunately for you the dra leaders and ambazombies are delusional, naive and stupid because of their actions and strategies which the entire world can see and not because I said so.

          How dumb was it for sickseku tabe and his cohorts to think that Nigeria is a save haven for them meanwhile each of them is only worth a $50,000 bounty

          How dumb is it for these guys to think that the abolishment of education and the killing of gendarme and police officers will lead to the birth of the delusional republic of ambazonia(dra)?

          How dumb can the dra leaders really be?

          You are too dumb to realise that what makes you ambazombies delusional, naive and stupid are your actions and strategies and not my words!
          When you call me idiot it doesn’t make me an idiot,it just shows you are dumb

    • ah ah ah ah the sky is red!…monkey don tchop pepper and drink vodka they shout any how ah ah ah! they tell them bro..they are better than israel forces..russians etc..they are the best of the world ah ah ah…I am on the floor…the man is hidding in Nigeria bush and caliming the world is his! ah ah ah

    • Hahaha Abazonia Tigers my foot. Where were they when their leaders were being arrested and how come they haven’t saved them? I am sure those leaders are either dead or being given hot café everyday.

      • @ bobjazz

        Beast of no nation, you’ll be disgraced when they come back stronger and more determined.

        • Africans For Donald Trump

          @vonjesco – the non-beast of the delusional republic of ambazombie (dra).
          Sickseku tabe is at the mercy of the unkown gunmen who abducted him while you demonstrate your extreme naivety and stupidity here by claiming that he will come back stronger!
          You can be as delusional as you want to be but that will not change the facts! Sickseku tabe and his cohorts will never come out stronger. They will be sent to jail for life or hanged for the decapitation of police and gendarme officers in Cameroon.
          You must be delusional naïve and stupid to the extent that you believe sickseku tabe and his cohorts have some manyu magical powers that will save them but that does not change the facts!
          Sickseku tabe’s wife now has a new boyfriend who has a mighty dick that she has named the mandingo of TRC.

        • @ Vonjesco, That’s all you secessionists can do. Curse and hate which will lead you to hell like your leaders.

  8. Very dangerous situation for a people. The SDO for Mamfe, governor of SW and gov`t actions should
    always be in the minds of people at this time that the president has openly declared war. No taking
    of chances and from whosoever. In war times, one sleeps with one eye open.
    Even the presence of the military on campuses, is not a guarantee. Has anyone quickly forgotten last
    year? If the shortest cut to a point is a straight line, then the only and good option in this time of war,
    is to keep your self or kid home. Period. Has gov`t or whosoever, restored life to anyone who died in
    such circumstance last year? No.
    A word to a wise, is sufficient. Don`t gamble my people. Your destiny, is in your own hands.

      @Joshu the delusional, naïve and stupid ambazombie terrorist:
      You should be providing your suggestions to the leaders of your delusional republic of ambazombies(dra) instead of wasting your time giving advice to the government of The Republic of Cameroon (TRC).
      The TRC does not take advice from the naïve and stupid terrorists who claim to be members of a nonexistent country called dra.
      The TRC is on the hunt for the dra terrorists in TRC. Nigeria and the rest of the world. The TRC is focused on smoking you dra terrorists out of your holes, abducting and annihilating you.

      The dra terrorists in the manyu forest are dying from hunger and you have no way to get food and medicine to them. Your main strengths of delusion, naivety and stupidty cannot save them! What a bunch of fools!

    • Man no run. You declare war and run to Nigeria. Stay home and fight the war. Idiots. Nobody in the NW is taking refuge in Nigeria. Only People from Mamfe because their whatsapp president from Mamfe. Dreamers. Cameroon is indivisible. Do you know about the 237now Movement? Join us to get a new republic and stop wasting your time. NW will not want to face the state of emmergency they had in 1990. Let those attacking the Cameroon millitary in Manyu better know the consequences. Running to Nigeria is just the beginning.

  9. From lies to lies, till independence… What a dumb strategy!

  10. U who sound like a retard..This is a conflict,or better still,a war And in a war,u target but the opposing army,not civilians.Can u show me any civilian,be it francophone nor anglophone,that the ADF have killed? But i can show u anglophone civilians that Biya have ordered his army to slaughter down.Biya is the terrorst Do u think u can be the prosecutor and the judge all the time? remember,they are not in the hands of the LRC shithole justice system.They are in the hands of Nigeria,and the international community is already aware.U guys have paid Nigeria to keep them there,in order to hult the speed of the restoration train that is moving with the speed of light. Bobga Harmony have already taken command, and Sesekou will come out of that illegal detention soon.Nigeria don’t have a choice.

    • Africans For Donald Trump

      I can show you a girl whose arm was amputated by the ambazombies just because she insisted on pursuing her education after the abolition of education in the NWand SW of Cameroon.
      I can show you businesses people whose lives have been destroyed by the disruption of business activity by the ambazombies!
      I can show you business owners who have died of poverty or heart attack after their business premises were burnt down by the ambazombies
      I can show you youth who have resorted to drugs and prostitution after the abolition of education by the ambazombies!
      If you are right that TRC paid the Nigerians to abduct sick seku tabe and his cohorts for a bounty of $50,000 each then sick seku and his foolowers are extremely naive and stupid not to realise how easy it was to get them!

      • @AFDT.,.,,your sh*thole LRC sending delegation to Nigeria in the dark to negotiate with HE sisiku Ayuk Tabe. You are here covered with naivety and short sense barking. Those so called “defense forces” of LRC are dying like cockroaches in the hands of Manyu tigers. I pity your sh*t hole country. It’s collapsing

  11. @BOBJAZZ.This is a conflict,or better still,a war. And in a war,u target but the opposing army,not civilians.Can u show me any civilian,be it francophone or anglophone,that the ADF have killed? But i can show u anglophone civilians that Biya have ordered his army to slaughter down.from 22nd sept 1st Oct till date.Biya is the terrorist Do u think u can be the prosecutor and the judge all the time? remember,Sesekou is not in the hands of the LRC shithole justice system.They are in the hands of Nigeria,and the international community is already aware.U guys have paid Nigeria to lock them,in order to hult the restoration train that is moving with the speed of light.But Bobga Harmony have already taken command,and Sesekou will come out of that illegal detention soon.Nigeria don’t have a choice.

  12. @James Stop wasting your time.The civilians running to Nigeria have said that they are running away from the LRC military,not ADF.And if u must know,it is Biya who declared war,not Ambasonians.Everybody saw how he came and read it on TV.If Biya declared war,what do u expect the people to do?Of course,the people have the right to defend themselves with any weapon that they can.It is only people who sit in air conditioned offices in Y’de who have the courage to declare war.Do u know why?becos,they know that they would not be the ones to go to the war front.

  13. @bobjazz That u do not support seperation should not give u the impetus to support lawlessness.Sesekou is not in the hands of LRC Kangaroo justice system,where cases are adjourned with no tangible reason.Sesekou will come out of detention and he will continue to give Y’de sleepless nights.Buea is our destination,nothing less.

      @Kongossa

      How delusional, naive and stupid can you get?

      Sickseku tabe was abducted by unkonwn gunmen. He is in abduction and not detention!

      You came out shouting in delusion here that sick seku tabe was in negotiation with the government of TRC while in abduction and the next day Craze Anus the dra communications nuthead put out a press release stating that there were absolutely no negotiations between the TRC and the dra ambazombie terrorist leaders.
      You are a liar or at best extremely delusional, naive and stupid

    • Kongosa man keep on dreaming. Sickseku and his colleagues are already dead.
