The Cameroonian dictator has ordered troops from La Republique du Cameroun to occupy Bamenda, the regional capital of the Northwest, after a day of riots in the English-speaking part of the country.
Biya made the decision during a party at State House with the Indomitable Lionesses who failed to win the 10th edition of the women’s Africa Cup of Nations. From Yaoundé, the military high command has decided to deploy an anti-terrorist unit including the mechanized division of the Rapid Intervention Battalion known popularly as BIR.
Backed up by helicopters, the Cameroonian army has completely sealed the land and air entrances and exits of the regional capital of the North West and they are currently carrying out a cleansing of the city by arresting and killing indiscriminately English speaking Cameroonians. One of our intelligence officers in the city is now being treated for wounds he sustained during the violent demonstrations.
