The news of this attack has been received with a lot of shock and condemnation from friends, sympathisers and family members, who are yet to recover from the passing of this politician and father.
A group of armed separatists carrying out most attacks within Menchum known as Tigers, on Wednesday denied claims or links to the incident. In a statement circulated over social media they called the attack barbaric and promised to expose anyone who was behind the attack or who used the name of “Ambazonia” to perpetrate such act.
However, the disclaimer came from one of the separatist leaders abroad. Same leaders had in several occasions declared they had little control over the actions of their soldiers on the ground.
Last Thursday, the death of this senior staff at the Ministry of Public Health, was announced. He died at the Yaoundé National Social Insurance Fund(CNPS) hospital, after a brief illness.
