Human Rights Defenders in Central Africa known by its French acronym as REDHAC is reporting that at least 100 unarmed civilians have been shot dead in English speaking Cameroon since October 1.
In a press release made public on October 3, the Rights group condemns what it calls serious human rights violations perpetrated by some members of the Cameroon’s security force.
The human rights network states that at least 100 demonstrators were shot dead during and after Sunday’s protest, identifying 38 victims.
Since October 1, several Cameroon government officials have taken turns applauding the security officers. One of them, Bernard Okalai Bilai, Governor of the Southwest Region, one of the areas where victims have been identified, said the security officers acted with professionalism. Meanwhile Government’s spokesman, Issa Tchrioma Bakary claimed just 10 protesters where killed due to “tactful” defense with security officers.
