Cameroon Sate Owned Newspaper Photoshops Headlines To Give False Impression Of School Resumption

Last year, an article was posted on the president's official website showing a manipulated image of the president bowing before a soldier’s coffin.The image was photoshoped.President Paul Biya was not at the ceremony, which was presided over by the minister of defence, because Biya at that time was in Europe. The image was edited using an old picture of the president taken during Cameroon National Day on May 20.Today, after his regime has embarked on a massive abduction spree of prominent voices in the struggle for the liberation of Southern Cameroons, his state owned propaganda newspaper called Cameroon Tribune, primitively came up with the idea of going so low by photoshoping two images to give an impression that schools have resumed in the Anglophone regions of the Country.The two images have been so prematurely photoshoped.It gives the impression at first look of a 9 years old pupil learning first steps in graphic designing.

The state owned newspaper  published the fake information  to give the world an impression that schools have resumed.

Consortium leader Mark Bareta takes a closer look at the images;
1- The photo is a combination of two different towns.
2- The photos were taken around September (Analyzing for photo noise)
3-The first photo was taken at wide-open shut to hide the number plates.
4- from the time this paper is published, it is doubtful at what time the photos were taken, edited and then compiled for printing; the photos were already handy for editing and printed as early as Sunday 22nd evening.

5- We all know that (sometimes) newspapers are printed and dated few days ahead to compromise for time taken to get to other regions, this paper that carries Monday 23rd was printed  on Sunday 22 January 2017. How comes an event that occurred before the publication of a paper appears on the paper?

It should be noted that at the time of filing this report, there is a 100% ghost town everywhere in West Cameroon, activities have been grounded and banks, markets,traffic circulation are not functioning.Schools remain closed.

West Cameroonians Facebook users have been sharing images of the Ghost Town on their walls;
