The government of Cameroon has been urged to redefine and control the mission of the armed forces in the two anglophone regions in crisis.
The call was made by religious leaders of the Protestant Council, the Islamic Superior Council and the National Episcopal Conference of Cameroon on Wednesday, September 19.
In their joint statement, the religious leaders call on government, diaspora, Amba boys and the army to put an end to hostilities and pave the way for a veritable peace and dialogue platform.
Excerpts of the statement below:
“We denounce the arbitrary and indiscriminate killings of Cameroonians by armed forces and the Amba Boys,”
“We denounce the rampant attacks on educational institutions and the deprivation of children of their right to education”.
“We call on the government to promptly initiate and announce a national plan for resolving this crisis, taking into account its real and profound causes in view of establishing veritable peace,”
