The Biya regime cut Internet connections in the major towns of the country’s two English-speaking regions to avoid pictures of the regimes brutality on Anglophones being relayed to the outside world. The action comes as a months-long strike by local lawyers and teachers intensifies. And now the population say the government is letting French sideline English in the bilingual country,and are demanding separation or federalism..
The biya government resorted to arrest after failing to corrupt leaders in an ongoing dialogue and force children to go back to school on but the Anglophone consortium insist going to school with the problems solved will mean living with without a future.
A warrant of arrest from the government of Cameroon is enough to sentence you and the regime has embarked on a massive arrest of Anglophone from all works of live from kids as young as 7 to judges.

Wife recounts the incident. ” when we heard a knock at the door, one of my children went to open the door. As soon as he opened the door, he saw guns pointing at him. The children started screening. You can imagine how traumatising it is for children to watch their father being carried away by gun men. The gun men searched and ransacked our house and took away some of my husband’s documents. Right now my husband has been locked up in a stinky cell in Nkambe where he is not even able to eat or lye down. He was locked up without hearing his own side of the story.”.
last 16th of January, 2017 Several teachers including the Principal of CCAST Bambili were arrested and taken to Gendarmarie for supporting the strike and their where about is still unclear ,many are feared dead.
The big questioned is, How can students go to school when some parents do not know the whereabouts of their own children.
