SUBJECT: Some Of The Nigerians Who Abuse Anglophone Cameroonians’ Hospitality Are Canon Remigius Alumona, Arthur Oranu And Chinedu Christian, Having All Saints Anglican Church-Bamenda As Their Base
Having carefully followed the Anglican crises over Radio Hot Cocoa, it is our singular honour most respectfully to write and draw your attention about what your Nigerian subjects have been doing for the past two years with one Rev. Father Yuh Emmanuel Chenyi. He is an Anglophone Cameroonian indigent from Bamessing and the Rev. Priest of All Saint Anglican Church-Bamenda and overall boss of the church for the North West and Western Region Cameroon. This Rev. Father has worked for about 15years in the same parish. The above names mentioned are the people behind his illegal dismissal without any crime, in order to bring their Nigerian brother to replace Rev. Father Yuh Emmanuel Chenyi as parish priest of the church in Bamenda. His rival’s name is Canon Remigius Alumona of Nigerian Nationality. This same Rev. Father Yuh Emmanuel Chenyi constructed the new parish of All Saint Anglican Church in Ntarinkon – Bamenda.
During this conflict, Rev Father Yuh Emmanuel Chenyi also drew the attention of the traditional authority of the Mankon Fondom after which an injunction order of his Royal highness the Fon of Mankon was served. His Royal Highness did advised the church elders to go back home and settle this matter indoors and then come back to tell him that everything has been put in order so that he can remove his injunction staff put there for arbitration sake. The elders accepted but did not do anything like they promise the Fon of Mankon. The worse situation of the matter is that Canon Remigius Alumona and his group dared to remove the injunction staff of His Royal Highness. What an abuse to the Fon of Mankon that we are his subjects? After the removal of that injunction they began worshiping there at the said Ntarikon Church site where injunction was served.
The Nigerians also hired some professional killers to eliminate Rev. Father Yuh Emmanuel Chenyi which they stormed All Saint Anglican Church in search of their target but did not meet him and still proceeded to his residence and still could not meet him. Our investigations have it too that before the coming of this people, they had thrown some tracks saying leave our church.
This matter was taken to Judicial Police and the Commissioner asked the Nigerians Church elders and executive committee to make peace with Rev. Father Yuh which they accepted but did not do anything. The matter was again taken to the Ministry of Labour and Social Security where the Director said they should pay the salary of Rev. Father Yuh Emmanuel. After their return nothing was done by the Nigerian elders or committee. The man Canon Remigius Alumona had made a declaration that he came to Cameroon for war and not for work. This priest and spokesman of the Anglican Nigerian Mafia declared war against Cameroon and is beginning it against an innocent man of God which the Anglophone youths respect so much in this community.
The matter was again taken to the State Counsel where he advised the church elders to pay the salary of Rev. Father Yuh and there, they accepted but did not do anything as they promised the State counsel and today it is about 2 years with his salary being suspended. We are saying that the president of Nigerian Union Bamenda should call his people to order before things get out of hands.
The provocation from Nigerians is unbearable and this will cause the situation which is currently going on now in South Africa to happen in this country, if they will persist in pushing us to the wall. The decision of the executive administration of the Anglophones Youth Higher Council for Action is;
- That the salary of Rev. Father Yuh Emmanuel Chenyi should be immediately paid to him so that he can care for his Family.
- That his rents for over two years should be paid.
- That he should be installed back to his function as he was before.
- That as per their Anglican protest letter of November 11th2013, the Cameroonian Congregations that Rev. Father Yuh is penalized for fighting for them should be allowed to express their abused rights by the Bishop and this above Nigerian click.
- That if nothing is done to solve this problem expect the worse from us.
MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND MASS COOPERATION.
