In a Situation Report made public by the Ambazonia Self Defense Council on Tuesday, March 27, the report categorically stated how soldiers of the Rapid Intervention Battalion, an elite division of La Republique’s regular army have allegedly burned parts of the buildings of St. Benedict’s Comprehensive College (SABECC) and a nearby Government Technical School. The incident according to the Council occurred on Monday, March 26.

The Bamenda Archdiocese, headed by Mgr. Cornelius Fontem Esua is the proprietor of the school which has been torched by La Republique’s soldiers. This is one of the many properties which have been leveled to the ground in the territory of Ambazonia by arsonists, masquerading as soldiers of La Republique du Cameroun regular army.

Shockingly, the campus and classrooms have been used by BIR soldiers as a makeshift camp for their operations, from where they’ve carried out attacks, abduct unarmed civilians, kept them locked up in pitch-black rooms, deprive them of food and water, clandestinely ferry many to Yaounde during the night and released others after extorting monetary payments from them, ranging from 500,000 – 1,000,000 FCFA as ransom demand.

The Council stated in the Situation Report, how a tactical operation known as ”flush out” was set in motion on Tuesday morning by the Ambazonia soldiers in Widikum, storming the college campus which resulted to the deaths of 15 soldiers of the Rapid Intervention Battalion. One student, held in captivity by BIR soldiers was killed during the exchange of gunfire.

The campus was razed to the ground in their usual ‘scorch-earth approach” by the surviving soldiers in the hopes of doing away with the evidence and later fled the scene. They still remain at large.
