Southern Cameroons fighters defending the Ndian County have set the residence of Minister Dion Ngute ablaze to protest his continued loyalty to the Biya Francophone regime in French Cameroun. Joseph Dion Ngute who also moonlights as the traditional ruler of the Barombi tribe is currently a Minister without portfolio in the Biya regime.
The massive villa was reportedly built with stolen oil money from the Bakassi Peninsular and diamond reserves in the Ndian County. The palace located in the Minister’s native Bobongo, Ekondo Titi was torched on Thursday by heavily armed Southern Cameroons Restoration Forces.
Several frontline Anglophone CPDM barons have been shortlisted for attacks including Chief Tabetando, Peter Mafany Musonge and Elvis Ngolle Ngolle. The Dion Ngute residence was burnt late in the night and gun shots were fired from behind the building. It should be recalled that Joseph Dion Ngute was attacked at the Cameroon embassy in South Africa on August 6th 2017 while on a mission to dialogue with the Southern Cameroons Diaspora.
