Pinyin Shooting: 3 Killed At Funeral Event, Charged On Military

I've never known you to be selfish, share this with someone!

Three persons have been shot dead in Pinyin during a funeral event.

“they killed 3 persons in a sporadic shooting at the funeral program. Amongst the people the military killed are two ladies and a guy” an indigene writes to us.

Pinyin is a town located in the Santa district of the North-West Region.

It is the largest village in Santa in terms of population and area, 45 kilometres away from Bamenda.

The killing has also been confirmed by MMI that reports the military raid as forces fired randomly at the burial ceremony not far from the Pinyin Palace.

In may 2018, we reported the massacre of 27 people killed by the Cameroon military.

In respond to these killings, Cameroon’s then communication Minister, Issa Tchiroma denied the allegations.

Tchiroma said investigations carried out by competent administrative authorities revealed armed gangs who had been planning terror for several months to sabotage the celebration of the 46th edition of National Unity on May 20, 2018.

“In fact, these groups of individuals had settled in these place for nearly two months, secretly wielding their different plans of attack “, Tchiroma told press men in a conference.

“Taking advantage of the suspension of the Ashong Gendarmerie Brigade near Batibo, the attackers used new corridors to install full cantonments”, he said.

This comes few days after the director of the Bamenda regional hospital, Dr Denis Nsame raised an alarm about a number of unidentified corpses abandoned at the mortuary.

“The head of a 24 year old lady, a 2 days old baby, and other five male unidentified corpses with ages ranging from 23- 29years”

He said all the corpses were brought in by the military dating from April 6 to August 2019

Since the escalation of the Anglophone Crisis, the Cameroon military has been accused of arbitrary arrests as well as extrajudicial killing.
