The ongoing war in Ground Zero has taken a toll on the people of Ambazonia. Lives have been lost, property razed to the ground, many have sought refuge in the forest fleeing from La Republique’s soldiers on a mission of death and destruction. The atmosphere spells insecurity, especially for school children.
Reports reaching BaretaNews desk indicates that lay private schools run by the Catholic Church across the Northern Zone are shutting their doors already amid security concerns.
It didn’t take long for the colonial delegates from the Ministries of Secondary and Basic Education to issue a press release denouncing the closure of schools. According to the document seen by BaretaNews, a Ministerial Order supposedly defining academic activities for the 2017/2018 calendar states ”pupils and students who are not involved in official examinations shall go on holidays on Friday 8th June 2018 at noon”.
Although the press release mentioned that schools shutting down their doors before official closing date could only do so after consultation with the colonial administrative authorities, the document after being examined by BaretaNews, looks more like a ”Cease and Desist” letter for it did not attempt to make an inquiry as to the reasons from proprietors behind early school closure but rather expect strict compliance to the ministerial ordinance.
The deterioting state of affairs across the Federal Republic of Ambazonia as the war continue doesn’t only put students’ lives at risk as they become targets. The Catholic Church being active on the ground better understand this. If schools are closing, the safety and security of the students is the motivation factor.

Terrorist Gendarme Puts GCE Markers At Gun Point
Teachers marking the 2018 Cameroon General Certificate of Education scripts at the Baptist High School (BHS) Buea, were forced to take refuge in benches to avoid an accidental discharge from the gun of an incensed terrorist Gendarmerie Officer.
The terrorist officer had been dispatched to the examination marking centre to ensure that teachers, who were correcting scripts of the 2018 GCE Examination in Buea, do so under a calm and serene atmosphere, despite the prevailing socio-political Crisis in the Ambazonia.
However, the teachers were stunned when their supposed ‘guardian angel’ metamorphosed into an aggressor, spoiling for a show down with the teachers. Most of the teachers went under their tables as the officer was wielding his gun at them, shouting and raining insults on them.
“He bashed into our quiet hall and began raining insults on us, pointing his gun at us. I could hear him say we Ambazonians are ungrateful. He said we have everything yet, we keep complaining. He mentioned that if we joke, he will waste our lives and nothing shall happen. At that point, we became so confused, and decided to seek refuge under the table. He so many bad things. But thanks to the timely intervention of his colleagues, he did not shoot,” Mbah Emmanuel, one of the makers told BaretaNews.
The act of the terrorist officer sent fear down the spines of the teachers, who at a certain moment feared for their lives as the officer insulted, cursed and ranted at them in French.
“He told us we are nobody in Cameroun. He insinuated that we convince our children to rebel against the government, hence, killing many of his fellow brothers. I couldn’t believe he said all of that. For those of us who sat in front, we were even scarier, giving that he pointed his gun straight to our faces,” Ndelle Efeti, another of the markers told BaretaNews.
Meanwhile, in other GCE marking Centres in Buea, some teachers have complained at the furious and suspecting ways in which some of the officers stationed to guard them are often staring at them whenever they are on break.
According to one of the teachers, “the older security officers look at us in a very stern way, while the younger ones rather look frightened.”
The recent outing and behaviour of one of the officers has left fear in the minds of many teachers, who are now wondering whether the State officials in charge of their security takes precaution as to the mental state of the officers they dispatch to guard teachers.
A teacher who witnessed the incident at BHS said the officer could be a drug addict, a drunk or suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, PTSD.

Ekema Patrick in Double Troubles; Nemesis?
The colonial Mayor of Buea, has been accused of Sacrificing his two brothers on the occultism alter of a political reelection drive. These accusations are coming at a time when the colonial governor of the Southern Zone of Ambazonia, Bernard Okalia Bilai, is crookedly trying to use his position to rescue the colonial slave boy from the wrath of the law, after a University of Buea Senate investigation committee recently indicted him of certificate forgery.
The two deceased brothers of the colonial mayor were among three other victims who perished in a ghastly motor accident at the Ombe bridge, towards Victoria, the Port City of Ambazonia. The five men who are alleged to be all, workers of the Buea Council, where Ekema Patrick is colonial mayor, were said to have been returning from a birth day party in Victoria, when their luxurious car crashed on the bridge into the valley. The population of Buea, after hearing the news on Sunday thronged the Buea hospital morgue to identify the victims.
As sadness filled the atmosphere, gossip conversations in small groups pointed to different possible causes of the sad incident. Some said the young men were heavily intoxicated with alcohol, especially as a partially consumed bottle of whisky was found in the wreckage of their car. Others pointed fingers at the occultism and spiritism practices of the colonial mayor which are allegedly often in public glare. A young man was overhead in one of the small gossip groups saying;
“…Chai, Ekema don already sacrifice this one them for CPDM reelection. Massa this one no be any coincidence say all of them na council workers and two of them na he brothers”
“… Sister, this is unbelievable,…see handsome boys just gone like that… I am suspecting Ekema. Since he ran away from God and became a member of that cult where they openly hold meetings at mile 15, I have been afraid of him. This should be his own election sacrifice, I’m sure…” a lady in one of the groups told her friends.
Some other denizens of Buea, are however associating the fatality that befell the deceased men to their unholy and extortionist activities within the Buea municipality, as collaborators of the Mayor. The two brothers of the Mayor, one of them being the market master of Muea Market, are particularly accused of extorting huge sums of monies from traders in the Market as Market construction fee, but since then, there is no sign of any construction ongoing in the market.
In the main time, the colonial Governor Bernard Okalia Bilai has asked a Buea based lawyer to file an injunction at the Buea High Court to prevent the University of Buea from speaking out or taking action against the certificates forgery scandal hanging on the colonial Mayor, Ekema Patrick. It is important to note that, the University Senate came to a unanimous conclusion to revoke all certificates awarded to Ekema Patrick and a letter has been sent to the colonial Minister of Higher Education requesting his approval of the decision. Ekema will also have to repay all the monies earned as an employee of the university, on the basis of his fake certificates.
However, the evil colonial networks are currently working to ensure that the slave boy escapes justice.
It appears nemesis is gradually catching up with the traitor of the Ambazonian revolution. The troubles are just coming from every direction and he may not be able to survive them politically. He can use the colonial architecture to escape Justice just for now. So long as Ambazonia shall be free, he must account for his academic mafias one day.
