The widow and her property appears to have been forcefully transported Against her Will in a Military escort to a completely different part of the town and dumped on open street out of her neighborhood rendering her helpless and homeless!

Expert Advise:

1. We Urge all Stakeholders of the Anglophone Cameroon Violent Arm Conflict to Seek Urgent means to contact the #canada government to seek viable means to end the current over 6 years conflict.

2. We Urge the Divisional Officer of Bamenda III to demonstrate his Authority by Reviewing the Homeless Situation of the Woman at Mbelewa quarter Nkwen and Provide her Urgent Emergency Support as she is observed to be currently Destitute.

3. We Urge Saparatists Authorities to crosscheck their operatives to Allow Safe passage for Indigenous Peoples of Anglophone Cameroon to Access their Farms for Cultivation as failing which would lead to Mass Destitution, Famine and Hunger in the already precarious situation especially in Nkwen Bamenda communities.
