The last hostages of the kidnapping of November 5, 2018 at the Presbyterian secondary school in Nkwen Mezam division, North West region have been freed.
Amongst the last hostages freed by the forces of law and order were two students and two administrators of the Presbyterian secondary school-Nkwen. The ex-hostages included; the principal of the school, one teacher and two students were released in the early hours of Monday, November 12, 2018. They were then received on hand by the local authorities of the North West Region under the coordination of the Governor of the North West Region, Lele l’Afrique. The circumstances of their release are not known, or even if a ransom has been paid in their favor. The 5 abducted were kidnapped alongside the 79 others released on November 5, 2018.
This comes on the heals a video released on social media purporting to show the kidnappers forcing several children kidnapped to give their names and the names of their parents and urging them to speak louder. Many repeat the same phrase: “I was taken from school last night by the Amba boys and I don’t know where I am.”
This another sad incident after that of the assassination of pastor Charles Wesco Truman an American national of the Cameroon bible fellowship, is a clear indication that these actions of the ambazonia fighters who claims that the struggle is ordained by God is merely an egocentric tendency of terrorist activities condemned time and again by the international community.
Those of the activists abroad who sponsors the terrorist activities on the field recently are tussling over the funds contributed to champion the struggle. The fighters on the ground are disgruntled since sums attributed to carter for the struggle is syphoned; thus they are bound to divert to looting and kidnapping for ransom making it to be a gain manufacturing business. Critics says this is the beginning of the end of this shameless and baseless struggle as the dazed fighters have gone on rampage by committing all sort of atrocities.
The turning point indeed as the secessionists terrorist groups are facing hell from the hands of the defence and security forces who are putting up a commendable fight on the field by dismantling most of the terrorist camps, the liberation of hostages and a lot more to assure the protection of persons and their property thanks to the unflinching collaboration by the population.
