PFN condemns killings in Southern Cameroon

The National Publicity Secretary of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) Bishop (Dr) Emma Gospel Isong has condemned the continuous killing in Southern Cameroon.

In a statement made available to DAILY POST in Calabar on Wednesday, Bishop Isong regretted the endless killing of innocent people in Southern Cameroon.

“There are so many killings in Cameroun especially the southern part. Last Friday in Ekondo Titi, Special Government forces (GENDARMES) moved into the villages and assassinated my brother in-law in broad daylight, shooting at sight on any male or youth.

“The entire rural areas are deserted; in one of the operations, they shot a man who was lying on a sick bed right on the chest despite pleadings that he is not a militant.

“Much innocent blood has been shed silently and my worries are not that I have lost a relation but my questions are: What is the Federal Government gaining by arbitrarily eliminating the lives of the young Cameroonians?

“Can’t the France, U.K or USA government intervene in this genocide? Do we still have the role of the United Nations in defending the poor armless English speaking citizens of a poor African Nation?

“How long will this last and can’t the Paul Biya-led govt look for dialogue which the people are requesting?

“If these people are accused of killing soldiers in retaliation, how many civilians can the soldiers then kill to avenge and who will help us count?

“Please help Cameroun not turn to another Rwanda please, please, please, the blood flow should stop now,” he pleaded.
