Southern Cameroons: This is the Upper sixth Student who was shot by gendarmes in Bamenda

Friends have identified him as Michael, also known as Hazard, for his football skills. Michael is an Upper Sixth Student of St. Paul’s College Nkwen, he was murdered in cold blood by Gendarmes in the area.

 

Eye witness accounts say when the situation in Bamenda became tense Friday evening wherein Ambazonia fighters were suspected to have arrived town, a special security measure was put in place.

Michael like many other passengers boarded a taxi but fell in the hands of the Gendarmes around Nkwen who told the driver to stop but he didn’t respect the order, seeing this danger and knowing how Military behaves, some passengers forced the driver to stop before running for safety.

Gendarmes then opened fire on the vehicle killing the driver, commonly called “papa Abigail”, father of three children, he died at the hospital from bullet wounds.While Michael, who had just written the Advance Level General Certificate of Education Examinations, GCE, was shot dead.

Earlier, Ambazonia fighters in an exchange of gunfire killed Police officer Alian Tachkounte Tchounte around Hospital Roundabout. Gunshots were also heard in Bambui, the university community but residents had gone indoors as evening approached. Shop owners were forced to shut down and run for safety as Ambazonia fighters stormed neighborhoods blocking major roads.

A witness said, “Seems Amba boys have finally entered town. I rushed out of office and took the Mulang road thinking I was being smart to take a short cut to the house but I met road blocks around the council area .I met policemen who were already there dismantling the blockage."

The governor of the North West region is yet to react to Friday’s incident which saw the entire city panicking. It was same day four individuals of the Tubah Council were abducted by Ambazonia fighters around Bambui, the first Deputy Mayor of Tubah, Chekelem Boniface escaped after being hinted by another staff that the situation was tense along the direction he took.
