Au moins 80 collégiens kidnappés à Bamenda, dans le nord-ouest

africanews | Des dizaines d‘élèves kidnappés par un commando armé dans un collège de la ville de Bamenda, chef-lieu de la région anglophone du Nord-Ouest. Les autorités gouvernementales et sécuritaires qui ont confié l’information à l’agence de presse Reuters, évoquent au moins 80 personnes kidnappées.

Le journaliste camerounais et collaborateur d’Africanews, Joël Honoré Kouam précise que le principal du collège ainsi que le chauffeur font partie des captifs, alors que des coups de feu se sont fait entendre dans la foulée de l’attaque. La responsabilité de ce rapt n’a pas encore été établie. Mais le mode opératoire fait penser à celui des séparatistes anglophones qui combattent le gouvernement dans l’espoir de créer un Etat indépendant pour les deux régions anglophones du Cameroun.

Depuis le durcissement de la crise dans les régions du Nord-Ouest et du Sud-Ouest fin 2016, les séparatistes menacent toute activité étatique dans ces zones. La semaine dernière, des employés d’une compagnie agricole étatique ont été amputés de plusieurs doigts dans la ville de Tiko, dans le Sud-Ouest, à en croire le gouverneur de la région. Bien avant, plusieurs écoles ont été la cible d’attaques armées et d’incendies.

Selon les chiffres d’ONG, au moins 400 personnes ont perdu la vie dans le conflit anglophone. L’armée camerounaise, quant à elle, estime ses pertes en vies humaines à une centaine de militaires. Le bilan n’est toujours pas connu côté séparatiste.

        you remember Chibok gals?

        That was Shekau’s greatest blunder—his downfall.

        His cousins down south have just dug their own grave. That’s why they are all coming out like mad cows to refute their deeds, direct or indirect. As if they don’t know that those monsters they have created in the bushes no longer wait on their orders before acting.

        Amba boys are now taking things into their own hands, not knowing that such actions would encourage EU/USA/SA to chase away IG monsters from their various countries. IGs know they are now in deep sh##, especially after their boys killed that USA citizen.

    • Your termite warriors killed the ‘English-speaking’ Whiteman. Can you also dispute the fact that Fru Ndi’s sister was abducted by your warriors? Can you dispute all the videos on Youtube wherein children are hunted in schools and severely beaten… with your blessings and material support? The answer is NO.

      Your Ambazombi adventure is akin to a typical Frankenstein story! Your warriors steal cars, weapons, military attire which they use in making insane publicity videos… murder innocent people, amputate children and others etc etc etc. You must bear the consequences, my dear.

      While all these barbaric acts are ongoing, your barrister Fru Nsoh is sinking your people even deeper! He is claiming that refugees cannot be deported which is simply bemusing! Sweden deports them everyday!
