Eric Tataw, an Investigative Journalist, Founding Director and Editor-in-chief of National Telegraph, a news organ based in Washington DC, US shared a part of his investigations of a school in South West Cameroon with The Guardian Post, Cameroon’s leading daily tabloid.

At about when it was 2 PM in Washington, that’s exactly 8 PM in Yaoundé, Cameroon’s capital, Saturday, March 2, 2019, Eric Tataw called the Publisher of The Guardian Post to indicate to him as a leading Newspaper on an incident in St. Joseph College, Sasse, a Catholic-run male college in the outskirt of Buea, capital of the restive South West Region.

Eric Tataw told Christian Ngah that a group of unidentified men has warned the administration of the school to shut down its doors, claiming to be Ambazonian Fighters. Eric Tataw went on that one of the persons amongst the unidentified men later hinted National Telegraph’s Investigative Team, attesting to the fact that the unidentified men were actually elements of the Cameroon military.

According to information made available to The Guardian Post by Eric Tataw, Government officials in the South West, as well as top military personnel instructed some soldiers to disguise and pose as Ambazonian Fighters. The disguised soldiers were later instructed to warn the administration of St. Joseph’s College, Sasse to shut down the school or face the music.

Eric Tataw opined that the intention was to push the Bishop of Buea to make a negative remark about the Ambazonian Fighters that would then help the Regime of Paul Biya, 86, Cameroon’s President since 1982 to use it as a Public Relations weapon at the Vatican and at other International Sphere.

Eric Tataw concluded by hinting The Guardian Post that some students would be transferred to the Christ the King College, CKC in Tiko, a nearby town to Buea where things seem normal. The two English-speaking regions of the North West and South West have remained tensed following an armed conflict in which the majority of the Anglophones are asking for an Independent State called Ambazonia. Ambazonian Fighters have in the past called for school boycott.

Just before long, a Buea-based media organ, HiTv Cameroon has confirmed information that Cameroon’s oldest college, St. Joseph College, Sasse, is shutting its doors, amidst increasing security concerns, adding that the Proprietor of the college, cum Bishop of the Buea Diocese, Mgr. Immanuel Bushu, disclosed the information this Sunday, March 3, 2019, citing the insecurity to be the main reasons.

Although the Bishop didn’t mention the issue of threats to HiTv Cameroon, the Bishop is quoted as saying the continuous armed battle between pro-independence fighters and the Cameroon Defense forces in Bwassa, a village close to Sasse, puts the security of the students at risk.

He indicated that the over 200 students of the institution will be sent to the Christ the King College, CKC Tiko, where there’s relative security. He affirmed that the students shall write the GCE in their new location, the news organ reports.

It should be recalled that in September 2018, unknown gunmen stormed Sasse college at around 3 AM, and flogged students and school administrators. The incident led to the temporary shutdown of the institution. This latest shutdown comes to add to the many that have happened in the two English Speaking Regions, the media organ has reported.

  1. Strong man Biya and his mafia syndicate at it again.

    What they tried to stage at the mount Ambazonia race failed big time, now another mess is been unraveled. The energy and money that Biya and his criminal brotherhood spend in failed criminal actions are staggering. If only a fraction of that energy and money was put to build the whole of LRC, LRC will be like London.

    All the Bishops in Ambazonia it is time to run, Grandpa needs fake evidence and this time he has decided that the people of God in Ambazonia are the ones he is going after.

    The only good thing this time is that at least they did not burn down SJC.

    Biya said that after two weeks, Ambazonians will run to Yaounde and beg him, Two years after that he is faking evidence to present to the pope, damn. I bet you grandpa will even try to bribe the man of God, he has no limits.
