Separatists under the banner of the so-called Ambazonia Defense Forces (ADF) have claimed responsibility for a missing government official in the restive northwest region.

The ADF said it had kidnapped an administrative official near the town of Batibo, some 40km from the regional capital Bamenda.

State-run Cameroon Radio Television (CRTV) confirmed the incident which is said to have taken place over the weekend. The latest victim, a representative for social affairs in the region is the second person to be abducted.

In mid February 2018, ADF claimed responsibility for the disappearance of Divisional Officer Namata Diteng, reports indicate that they kidnapped him and burnt his car.

Kidnapping is a new line of action by the separatists who usually staged deadly guerilla style attacks on members of the security forces. They said the soldiers, police and gendarmes were occupation forces hence their resolve to rid the towns of them.

President Paul Biya declared war on the separatists last year after they killed a number of police personnel. The group’s new leader has also declared an era of self-defense in the wake of reprisal attacks by members of the security on citizens.

The situation has led to the imposition of curfew in the Anglophone regions – northwest (capital, Bamenda) and the southwest (capital, Buea.) The government insists that the areas remain peaceful stressing that it was in control of the security situation.

Biya recently approved the formation of a new security region, the country’s fifth to be based in Bamenda. Meanwhile a humanitarian situation has been created with most Cameroonians fleeing into Nigeria for fear of reprisal attacks.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
