Anglophone Crisis: Fire Guts Muyuka Court Of First Instance

The population of Muyuka, Fako Division of the South West Region, Tuesday, June 12 breaking Wednesday, June 13, 2018, woke up and discovered that the Sub-divisional Court of First Instance has been razed by fire.

Bemused by the incident, the State Prosecutors and Judges started scooping up some remnants of vital documents from the debris of the ravaged building.

Officials of the court also removed some of the important documents in some offices that survived the arson attack.

Even though no official statement has been made regarding the fire incident, many inhabitants think that the arson attack on the court is not unconnected to the ongoing Anglophone Crisis rocking the North West and South West Regions.

As if to add salt to injury, the June 13 fire outbreak, comes exactly one week after the State Counsel’s Office in the same area was also consumed by fire.

Besides the arson attacks on the legal structures, recently, unknown gunmen attacked the Muyuka Police Station and the Bavenga Prison, reportedly liberating some inmates who were held in the two detention facilities.

Muyaka Sub-division, which consists of Ekona, Ikata, Bafia, Munyenge and other villages has become a battleground between Cameroon military and elements of the Ambazonia Defence Forces (ADF) making the area inhabitable to civilians in recent times.
