“I learned with great sadness of the horrific murder of several students of the Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy in the town of Kumba.

I condemn in the strongest possible terms this barbaric and cowardly crime against innocent children.

I have also instructed that appropriate measures be taken diligently to ensure that the perpetrators of these despicable acts are apprehended by our Defence and Security Forces and brought to justice.

I address my full solidarity and sincere condolences to the bereaved families as well as the educational community. I join my wishes and the deepest empathy of my Wife for the prompt recovery of the injured” the president wrote on his twitter handle

Biya’s response to the shooting sparked instant backlash on social media.

Journalists and the media have been asking why it took the president 72 hours to make a post in response to the shooting of 8 school kids in his country.

At the moment of this report, both government and Ambazonian forces have washed their hands off the shooting.
