The population of the South West Regional Capital, Buea is awash by spate of ritual killings that has resurfaced in the metropolis.
Denizens of Bakweri Town are still in shock and consternation when they got up on Tuesday, July 18, and found the corpse of Odilia Molua along the Small Soppo stretch of road.
The deceased in her 30s was reportedly dropped-off by a taxi driver as explained by an eye witness.
“When I got close to the lady after she has been dumped by the speedy taxi driver, I discovered that there was some white substance coming out from the woman’s mouth, so I shouted to attract a few people who rushed to the scene and also saw the dead woman, but the driver had already driven off. We then alerted the forces of law and order,” the eye witness recounted to reporters.
It would be recalled that the July18 incident came barely a fortnight after a University of Buea student, Adele Elise Ekale, residing at Bakweri Town was also found dead.
Her corpse was discovered behind their house, two days after she went missing. One week later, the deceased boyfriend, Pasu Seji, was apprehended by the Buea Municipal Police at the Muea Market, while attempting to escape.
As the tears of mourners were still oozing out, the mortal remains of another girl was discovered in Bomaka, in her own pool of blood.
The frequent death, especially by young girls in Buea, has made denizens restive. Many are hoping that the administrative authorities of the Region will beef up security to unmask those behind what is referred today in Buea as serial ritual killings.
