Carine, a nurse working at the Bishop’s House, Kumbo in the northern part of Anglophone Cameroon (Ambazonia) who was shot by French Cameroun armed terrorists on 24 February, 2021 in her hips has finally given up the ghost on 25 February, 2021. The targeting of frontline workers ( nurses) in Southern Cameroons by armed French Cameroun soldiers ordered by mummified Paul Biya backed by France is not new. Since the start of the conflict in 2016, health facilities have been burnt at times with patients. Innocent civilians have been shot in hospitals.
In the past four years, the French-Cameroun Bulubeti Militia’s cruelty is beyond the pale of hitherto genocidal boundaries. While a section of Biya’s militias target locals and their properties, another hit squad is bent on depriving other civilians who might have a chance of survival by targeting health facilities and personnel. Ngamsha Gilbert, was a nurse from the village of Oku who bikes the 25km journey daily to Kumbo, for work. This journey ended on the 29th of January 2019, when French Cameroun’s appointed Governor, Lele Afrique’s militias shot him point blank. His fresh, clean and lifeless body was not enough for the militias/soldiers. A bomb was lazed in his body as the soldiers covered their ears for an explosion that shattered Gilbert’s body into chunks
Fomonyuy Ornella, a pregnant 19-year-old nurse from Kumbo, is now part of the statistics of killed health personnel. Her January 18, 2019, gruesome killing and that of her unborn baby failed to deter the sanguinary Governor Lele Afrique. Prior to Mbuh Priscilia and her colleague’s massacre at the Mbingo Baptist Hospital on April 1, 2019, she and her colleagues were in emergency mode two weeks prior assisting the same French Cameroun Bulubeti militias, said to have been attacked by the rag-tag Ambazonia guerillas operating in the municipality. Little did she know that her life shall be sniffed out by those they worked professionally to save. Priscilia and three of her colleagues were mangled by Lele Afrique’s marauding Militias, who attacked the hospital under Lele Afrique’s instructions.
The Story of 24-year-old Carine
24-year-Carine, a nurse pleaded for the soldiers to spare her life, but they did not. She had made the mistake of accepting her British Southern Cameroonian heritage, when the marauding soldiers stormed her house July 5th, 2019, in Mankon, Bamenda. “They asked us, if we were anglophones” the sister of the late Carine told sympathizers from her hospital bed. Carine joins a long list of medical personnel killed by the American-trained French Cameroun Bulu/Beti Militias under 87-year-old frail Paul Biya.
