Abductions at PSS Nkwen: PCC Moderator Reacts With A 7 Points Requests





The Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) has within one week suffered from the abduction of both students and members of staff from PSS, Nkwen, Bamenda in the North West Region of Cameroon on Wednesday the 31st of October and Sunday the 4th of November 2018.
On Wednesday the 31st of October 2018, eleven (11) male students of this institution were abducted on campus by gunmen who found their way into the premises of the school. All the eleven students were of the form 5 class who had resumed studies to prepare for their end of course certificate examination. Because of the fighting going on in the vicinities of Bafut and Bali, these students were gathered from the Cameroon Protestant College (CPC), Bali and Presbyterian School of Science and Technology (PSST), Bafut for studies. The abductors asked for a huge ransom and the Church was helpless. However, the students regained their freedom very traumatized.

While the Church was bleeding and pondering on this unfortunate incident, 78 (seventy – eight) students and 3 (three) staff members were abducted from the same school on Sunday the 4th of November 2018, barely five days after the Wednesday incident. The PCC is greatly terrified and shocked by these successive attacks on this institution, given that the Church had seen the shooting and killing, and shooting and seriously wounding its personnel, particularly of the educational sector of late.
The kidnap of these huge number of innocent children and some members of their staff, including the Principal is particularly very worrying! We, therefore, react as follows:

1. Call on whosoever has committed this grave act of inhumanity on these innocent children and the staff members of this institution to immediately and unconditionally release them. We must note that this is an open serious crime against humanity that no one in his/her right senses, no government and organization would hesitate to vehemently condemn.
3. We call on both the Cameroon military and the Ambazonia militia to respect the right of children to education. This is a universal right that all governments and anti-government forces fighting everywhere on earth respect and protect.
4. We call on the government of the Republic of Cameroon to take very urgent measures to resolve the Anglophone crisis that has led to the killing of thousands of innocent children of God, be they military or civilians, and the destruction of overwhelming private and public property, homes of people and entire villages.

5. We call on both the Cameroon government and the Ambazonia fighters to agree on providing maximum security for the innocent young Cameroonians to exercise their right to study. And that these innocent children and their teachers should not be used as baits and sacrificial lambs.
6. We call on the international community to take note of these graveous cycle of acts of inhumanity that have become a daily occurrence in Anglophone Cameroon that puts the lives of over seven million people in harm’s way. We also call on the international community not to be aloof but look for ways to urgently assist in ending this crisis.
7. That we will suspend the education of young Cameroonians provided by the Presbyterian Education Authority (PEA) wherever there are security challenges.

However, we call on the parents, family members and friends of our sons and daughters and the staff members abducted to remain calm and supportive of our efforts to have them released.

We take this opportunity to call on all God-fearing Cameroonians and beyond to continue to pray fervently that God should take away this dark cloud of evil and wickedness that has descended on Cameroon, particularly the Anglophone community.
Yours for the Sake of the Faith,

Otto Ama

    Biya’s terrorists army has abducted these youths and their teachers the same way they abducted H E Sisiku and 45 of his cabinet in Abudja over 9 months of silence,Amba boys have no means to feed or shelter these abductees,they are in bushes with no food to feed themselves and their vulnerable families how can they abduct anyone creating more stress? again the entire English regions are heavily militarised by the french Cameroon army therefore there is no way Amba boys can kidnap 78 persons in the presence of the military, biya wants to use bombs meant for boko haram in Ambazonian to justify his search for the students who are in his military keeping, they failed to deceive the world by labeling Ambazonian separatists as terrorists so now they want to use kidnapping of students like boko haram did in Nigeria,good people and leaders of this world have seen through the tactics biya is trying to justify his genocidal acts, they too are exposing the biyas lies,fake abduction,the daily killings and displacement of vulnerable people who merely asked for fairness in a country where every one is frightful of the butcher leader owns feels he owns the entire country and its people with no human rights of freedom and basic necessities,he has burnt over 100 villages in southern Cameroons with over 500000 refugees, 5000 killings of people,1000 detained in jail unlawfully yet he still manages to bribe a fake election and continue with his daily killings a d abduction, biya has too much blood in his hands,he will not win this war he started

    The truth about these children abducted by biya will be revealed soon. The truth has a way of unmasking corrupt leaders like biya. biya shall run but have no place to hide. He shall pay for all the blood he has spilled in Ambazonia. The world will be foolish to believe that Amba boys can capture 80 students without trucks to haul them. Indicators point to biya’s abduction of these children. This is a cowardly act. The proconsul in Ambazonia just suspended all movement in the Bamenda County to facilitate the continuation of their crimes on Ambazonians. .

    Whoever is the perpetrator of this crime should be vehemently condemn. While it is our God given right to fight for our liberation, I just hope that some of us are not beginning to go rogue. I say this because some information circulating on the internet is creating more confusion than is necessary.
    The Church, Parents and all Ambazonians must make sure that the safety of our children is non-negotiable. It is our collective responsibility to make sure that we guarantee their safety no matter what.

    Seven point my …, stupid fools. Innocent children and irresponsible parents.

    Some of you people don’t love your children at all. They are a bore to some of you people and schools has become a way to keep them away from you.

    Some of you people will sacrifice your children for the devil Paul Biya.

    I have no pity to you people, not at all. You deserve it. Fell the pain.

    Nonsense, keep your children at home so as to force this nonsense thing called the international community to act, you can not. But you want to write a seven-point request to make them act. You really do think the people in the international community takes you to be human? If they did, they will not allow devils like Biya to be there.

    I don’t know the day that some of us Africans will start using our brains. 9000 of us massacred and you people don’t feel a thing, hundreds of thousands of our people displaced and you people don’t feel the pain. But you want to make us think you fell for the same people, who, if killed, you will not even worry at all, for all the other 9000 that has been massacred did not make you close your school.

    You wicked people.

      God just called me and said someone just made a request that I should be punished.

      I forgot to tell you, God has punished me so much to the point that it does not know what to do anymore.

      Try harder, Bro.
