As the socio-political crisis in Cameroon keeps prolonging, death tolls especially in the Anglophone Regions keep rising.

As the socio-political crisis in Cameroon keeps prolonging, death tolls especially in the Anglophone Regions keep rising.

In one week, close to five (5) persons have lost their lives in the English speaking Regions of Cameroon and eye-witnesses attest that forces of law and order are perpertrating the killings. But why have these deads not been prioritised on mainstream media or are they killings not that important to attract media concern? It could be a food for thought which could help us question the role of the 21st Century media.

Notwithstanding, some human right activists have taken upon themselves to inform both the national and international community through the social media of the somewhat genocide.

In one of his recent post on Facebook titled “Genocide continues” Mark Bara, one of the activists wrote: “He is called Benjamin still to get the other names. He was shot today (February 20, 2018) on his way to school…He is 18years old and a student of GTHS Nkwen. Shot around GBHS Bayelle in the Northern zone. RIP Benjamin…”

Also, a medical doctor by name Dr. Veh Dinge-Njob of PMI Nkwen is just recovering from an operation due to a gun shot meted on her by elements of BIR, Baretanews report on Facebook on February 20.

In the same vein, Elie Smith published on his Facebook page in the early hours of February 21, 2018: “Unconfirmed reports reaching one has it that 1Amba Tiger was killed at Ekok while…”

Mark Bara again on February 20 posted on his Facebook page “How much can we cry”, where he tells the ordeal of Nyameya Foster Mudeh, 25years old found dead five days after his disappearance in Angie Batibo. He was found with traces of bullets on his back and leg, shot by “La Republique” as he put it.

And the list continues…

Where does the problem lie? Is it with the forces of law and order or with civilians? It is hard to decifer but common sense proves that harm is being done on the defenseless. This goes to question the extent of human right freedom in Cameroon.

The clock is ticking and time will tell.
