The French Cameroun government in charge of the killings refused it never happened. The governor in charge of the Killings Mr. Lele Afrique, still displays the prison keys to any journalist who dares report about the killings. Even men-of-God were scared to tell the truth about the killings. A seemingly scared Prelate – Reverend Father Humphrey Tata Mbuy, Director of Communications in the Diocese of Bamenda, said this a few months later in an interview with The Voice Newspaper:
“The statistics are alarming, and I would at this moment fear to even give them because they can shock every one of us. But I can take the ones that are already online because they were posted online. That is the one from the diocese of Kumbo and these are statistics from 19 out of 36 parishes which are telling us that in the last three months only, 750 houses have been burnt, 250 people have been killed and over 10 000 are internally displaced…” .

That Wednesday 5 December, 2018, the French Cameroun military invaded the village of Meluf in Bui County of British Cameroon. They were merciless. They killed and burnt from Humans to pigs. In total, more than 6 were killed plus a mad man. With no one to provide them solace or protection, the church provided the necessary comfort on that faithful day, as some of the corpses were transported to God’s acre in the area (videos below). The church itself is not spared by the arrogant and untouchable French Cameroun military. With the killings, the happy military and their bosses just hope the pains and memories will disappear.
With the pain still fresh in their minds, sympathizers in Meluf, Bui County early this month dreaded the bullets, charred buildings and deserted communities to remember the people killed on 5 December, 2018 and others killed in the ongoing genocide in the village and entire British Cameroon. For the prelates present, the lord knows why. For the relatives of the murdered, the pain is still fresh as was on that day, and the gaps unfilled till justice is delivered.
Bui County, like any other part of British Cameroon has been decimated by the untouchable French Cameroun Bulubeti Militias/Military. Only an independent fact-finding mission can ascertain the real number of victims of this genocide that the perpetrators have been struggling to conceal for three years now. For now, the killings accelerate as victims continue to remember their loved ones in hiding. Many are scared of being made a statistics by the French Cameroun military that is bent on erasing the people of British Southern Cameroons, who voted to join an independent French Cameroun in 1961 as two equal states.
