Cameroon Military Burns Down Kumba Hospital!

Kumba District Hospital is in flames.

The Cameroon military has burnt down a Hospital at Up Station Kumba, an infirmary in Kumba, a war-torn town in Cameroon’s restive South West Region, eyewitnesses have said.

According to a source who spoke to National Telegraph from hiding in the Hospital, a group of soldiers stormed the Hospital at about 1AM Monday February 11, 2019 and torched most structures within the Hospital.

National Telegraph gathered that the Theatre, Female Surgical, Nurses’ Quarters and other areas within the Hospital have been burnt down. Some hospital vehicles were also burnt, National Telegraph has confirmed.

The act has been seriously condemned by some Kumba residents who spoke to National Telegraph’s Eric Tataw on basis of concealment. Others have noted that the military had burnt down another hospital in Konye, a not-too-far restive town from Kumba. Some patients were also burnt alive in the Konye incident, they told National Telegraph.

This isn’t the first time the military is burning down medical installations, National Telegraph has been told. There have been reports of soldiers shooting and killing even medical personnel.

The military had committed another grievous Human Rights abuse on a Health Worker. Just recently, a nurse was intercepted by elements of the Cameroon Military, identified as nurse, shot, attached to a bomb before he was detonated.

Ngamsha Gilbert Saber born on July 3, 1977 was on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, going to his duty post at Oku, a village in the North West Region before he was detonated at Tadu, a village in Kumbo Sub-Division, in Cameroon’s Bui Division, North West Region.

A Nigerian Medical Doctor, Samuel Njimogu, a Dentist resident in same Kumba, was shot and killed by elements of the Cameroon military.  Married to a Cameroonian lady from Ntenako, a village in Manyu, one of the precincts in the South West, Dr. Njimogu was brutally murdered, Sunday, February 3, 2019, at Ediki, a warring town close to Kumba still in the country’s South West, family sources told National Telegraph.

The military has continued uninterruptedly in contravening any warfare condition, killing medics, women, and children, physically challenged persons as well as Religious. The military has killed many healthcare workers including priests and missionaries from America, Ghana and Kenya.

I heartily want to thank this media organ, National Telegraph for being professional, unbiased and objective. The innocent can only be heard through a medium like this one.

They are trying to distract attention away from their fake catastrophic 11th of February and are also attempting to blackmail our diplomatic and combat achievements of recent.

Very pathetic and foolish from them.
