Enquiry Commission Establishes Military Responsibility For Ngarbuh Massacre

The long awaited report of the enquiry commission set up by the president of the Republic to investigate the Ngarbuh massacre that took place on the night of February 13-14, has finally been made public.


From the report made public today April 21, it came out that a reconnaissance mission was ordered to Ngarbuh by the Commander of the 52nd Mitorized Infantry Batallion in Nkambe, Major Nyangono Ze Charles Eric and was commanded by Sergeant Babaginga who enlisted the services of 10 members of the vigilante committee.


During the operation, exchange of gunfire led to the death of five separatist fighters, but the soldiers involved noticed that they had killed three women and 10 children.


In order to conceal the ignominious crime, the soldiers decided to set the houses on fire "out of panic" and Sergeant Babaginga deliberately decided to produce a fake report upon return to the station, which the government exploited to denounce military responsibility of the massacre.


In reaction, president Paul Biya has ordered disciplinary proceedings against Major Nyangono Ze Charles Eric and all servicemen who took part in the Ngarbuh massacre and has also ordered the arrest of Sergeant Babaginga and the 10 members of the vigilante committee that were involved in the operation.


The president has equally asked that the corpses of the deceased be exhumed and given a descent burial at the cost of the State while claimants of the victims shall be identified by the State so that indemnities can be paid to them.

O! what a shame. The Cameroon government is not even ashamed. What about the other massive killings and burnings of houses in the past years in the north and south west regions..
