A group of five boys are on the run in Bamenda after haven allegedly chopped off the hands of three students at Government Bilingual High School Bamenda yesterday June 5 2017. This incident took place behind the school campus when these boys attacked the girls with cutlasses.
Some girls were witnesses to the act but those boys who carried out the act promised them worst if they called for the attention of those around.
The motive for this action is unknown and rumors goes that it is because this school is one of the two GCE Writing Centers in Bamenda and coupled with the violation of school boycott on the part of these girls. Rumors also goes that these girls went for revision classes in preparation for the upcoming GCE exams.
Bamenda has witnessed turmoil lately but it has not been violence against school children and more precisely the girl child.
