Paul Biya Opens Investigation Into The Murder Of US Missionary In Bamenda

Cameroon - Defence Minister Joseph Beti Assomo (photo) reports that the Cameroonian government has just opened an investigation into the murder of a U.S missionary Charles Truman Wesco which occurred October 30, in Bamenda, Anglophone region.

The minister said: “a group of armed terrorists broke in on the morning of Tuesday, October 30, 2018, around 10 a.m. in Bambui, a rural area 14 kilometers from Bamenda, Tubah district”. They planned to attack the university area and the territorial brigade of Tubah gendarmerie, the official said.

“Around 10 a.m., the Reverend Charles Truman Wesco, born on August 24, 1974 in Washington DC, a Cameroon Bible Fellowship pastor of American nationality, was passing through this place in his vehicle with his wife, son and driver. The convoy was fired at by snipers,” he added. The American missionary was hit in the temple. He was first evacuated to a health center in Nkwen and then transferred to the Bamenda Regional Hospital where he finally died.

Had they been immediately pursued by the defense and security forces, says the member of the government, the armed assailants, would have retaliated with fire provoking a clash between them and the forces positioned around the University of Bamenda.

The report shows that four terrorists have been neutralized, several wounded in their ranks and four 12-calibre rifles recovered. A student and a soldier were injured.
The Minister in charge of Defense once again asks foreign nationals whose presence is truly essential in the North-West and South-West to report to the authorities their moves as the regions are currently plagued by armed gangs.
