The French Cameroun dictator has in a declaration over state radio and television assured the people of La Republique du Cameroun that all necessary measures have been taken to secure the Southern Cameroons territory.
The 84-year-old Paul Biya made the pronouncement upon arrival at the Nsimalen International airport in Yaounde from the Ivory Coast where he took part in the 5th African Union – European Union summit on Thursday, November 30th, 2017.
Biya was reacting to news concerning the serial assassination of soldiers and police of the French Cameroun defense and security forces deployed to Southern Cameroons.
“I learned with emotion the murder of four Cameroonian soldiers and two policemen in the south-west of our country. Following the disappearance of these six brave military and police officers, I would like to express my condolences to the families and to our valiant defense and security forces. I think things are now perfectly clear for everyone. Cameroon is the victim of repeated attacks from a band of terrorists running a secessionist movement. In the face of these acts of aggression, I wish to reassure the Cameroonian people that all steps are being taken to hunt down the criminals and to ensure that peace and security are safeguarded throughout the country. ”
