US Urges Government Forces, Separatists To Halt Indiscriminate Killings

The USA has called for an immediate halt to the indiscriminate targeting of civilians and the burning of houses by Cameroonian Government forces and attacks by Anglophone separatists against civilians and security forces in the Northwest and Southwest Regions.


US Department of State spokesperson, Heather Nauert, made the declaration on November 6, in a press statement titled: “US Concerned Over Violence Uptick in Cameroon”.

“The systematic intimidation based on ethnic and religious affiliation, including Yaounde and Douala, must stop,” she said. “In memory of American missionary, Charles Wesco, and all others who have lost their lives in the Anglophone crisis, we urge all sides to end the violence and enter into broad-based reconciliatory dialogue without preconditions.”
The US equally condemned, in the strongest possible terms, the November 5 kidnapping of students and staff from the Presbyterian Secondary School, PSS Nkwen in Bamenda in the Northwest region.

“The United States expresses grave concern over the burgeoning Anglophone Crisis in Cameroon’s Northwest and Southwest regions” the statement reads.
