Ngarbuh killingi: the personal revenge, angers of Ilaria Allegrozi

Prohibited from entering Cameroonian territory since April 2019, by the authorities for lack of observers on the ground, Ilaria Allegrozi, pseudo activist of Human Right Watch (HRW) scours the audiovisual media platforms and social networks for spitting venom against Cameroon by accusing the country of committing massacres. Her verve, devoid of any objectivity, hardly hides her desire for revenge against the country's authorities. Blinded by a hatred that has become visceral, Ilaria, whose words only provoke hilarity, is lost in conjecture about the alleged massacre of civilians in Ngarbuh in the department of Donga-Mantung region in northwest Cameroon. Who can believe that an activist who claims to hold satellite images incriminating the Cameroon Army, decides against all odds, not to broadcast them !? By rushing to demand a United Nations investigation, Ilaria, who clearly displays her membership in the Cameroonian enemy camp, wants to set the scene for an international armed intervention whose sole aim is to put an end to Cameroon by fire and blood..

Since the occurrence of the incident which resulted in the death of 5 civilians including a woman and 4 children following clashes between the army and the separatist rebels in the locality of Ngarbuh 3 in the North West region of DongMantung department , we observe a great agitation of pseudo human rights defenders. Some have embarked on a kind of recovery to make their own a national cause because the President of the Republic is committed to ensuring the safety of people and their property wherever they are. This is why, in view of the situation which was getting bogged down in the North-West and South-West regions, the head of the defense and security forces deployed his men there. 

Under the apparent objectivity, a partial militancy If at first glance Ilaria Allegrozi offers all the guarantees of an objective researcher, by not hesitating to denounce the abuses committed by the separatists, the reality is however radically different. She regularly leaves her role as a researcher in order to become an activist and take sides with terrorist organizations. Thus under the guise of impartiality, it distributes the good and the bad points to the different actors of the conflict, without worrying about the reality of the terrain which it claims to know, by highlighting its long presence on the African continent. The senior Africa researcher at Human Rihts Watch says in a post in her tweeter account that and widely reported on the Human Rigths Watch website: "The murders of civilians, including children committed in horrific conditions, are heinous crimes which should be the subject of effective and independent investigations and those responsible should be brought to justice. ” In addition to this statement, she further adds that "denying that these crimes have been committed further adds to the trauma suffered by the survivors and will only encourage government troops to commit other atrocities". This is in reaction to the Mindef press release signed on February 17, 2020 which refutes the argument of the massacre, but supports that of an unfortunate incident which caused the death of 5 people including a lady and five children. The lady's two statements were largely exploited by the unfortunate pharmacy that is Human Rights Watch (HRW), whose preferred field of choice is Africa. 

Indeed, she indiscriminately accuses the army of having perpetrated massacres against the civilian populations in Ngarbuh 3 in the Donga-Mantung department, north-west region. This lady actually left her role as a researcher to position herself as a real advocate defending the cause of English-speaking separatists. Under the guise of a pseudo impartiality, it distributes the good and the bad points to the two parties in conflict but nevertheless gives pride of place to the Cameroonian defense forces who are as victims of the abuses of the separatists as the civilian populations. It undermines the reality on the ground which sufficiently demonstrates that many secessionists wear army uniforms to commit certain crimes. Satellite images, however, can only identify men in uniform who are not soldiers. Very easy in such a context to stick the responsibility to the republican army, when we know that the terrorists also dress in conventional military uniforms. To justify her statements, she highlights her long experience on the African continent. Without any verification, the suspicions of the links it would have with the separatist terrorist movements must be imperatively raised. This lady to try to reassure the most skeptical claims to have viewed the satellite images which confirms that it is a massacre involving the army. We would have gladly taken these different revelations as a word of the gospel if they did not show through in filigree, a real desire to turn the international community against the power of Yaoundé. HRW is trying to demonstrate that the power of Yaoundé is the black sheep of the misfortunes that befall the populations of the English-speaking regions of Cameroon. However, on several occasions the government has launched appeals to certain countries which house those who finance the separatists, but to date nothing has been done. The latter continue, under the noses and beards of the international community, to inflict worse ill-treatment on the civilian populations and on elements of the Defense Forces deployed with a view to securing the populations. The question is why is this reality ignored by Human Rights Wtach? HRW is trying to demonstrate that the power of Yaoundé is the black sheep of the misfortunes that befall the populations of the English-speaking regions of Cameroon. However, on several occasions the government has launched appeals to certain countries which house those who finance the separatists, but to date nothing has been done. The latter continue, under the noses and beards of the international community, to inflict worse ill-treatment on the civilian populations and on elements of the Defense Forces deployed with a view to securing the populations. The question is why is this reality ignored by Human Rights Wtach? HRW is trying to demonstrate that the power of Yaoundé is the black sheep of the misfortunes that befall the populations of the English-speaking regions of Cameroon. However, on several occasions the government has launched appeals to certain countries which house those who finance the separatists, but to date nothing has been done. The latter continue, under the noses and beards of the international community, to inflict worse ill-treatment on the civilian populations and on elements of the Defense Forces deployed with a view to securing the populations. The question is why is this reality ignored by Human Rights Wtach? the government has repeatedly appealed to certain countries that house those who finance the separatists, but nothing has been done to date. The latter continue, under the noses and beards of the international community, to inflict worse ill-treatment on the civilian populations and on elements of the Defense Forces deployed with a view to securing the populations. The question is why is this reality ignored by Human Rights Wtach? the government has repeatedly appealed to certain countries that house those who finance the separatists, but nothing has been done to date. The latter continue, under the noses and beards of the international community, to inflict worse ill-treatment on the civilian populations and on elements of the Defense Forces deployed with a view to securing the populations. The question is why is this reality ignored by Human Rights Wtach? 

Harmful amateurism: A total absence of objective and direct witnesses 

The heart of the problem lies around the collection of information, and the credit given to the word of certain witnesses. It is difficult, if not impossible, to grant the benefit of the doubt to a speech from unidentified people, without source, without the slightest verification and for which the suspicions of links with the separatist terrorist movements must imperatively be removed. Ilaria Allegrozi thus claimed to be in possession of satellite images proving the reality of massacres committed by the Cameroonian armed forces in Ngarbuh. If so, why didn't she immediately release the photos?!

Imposture: The military trial and the absence of impunity 

Ilaria's tight positions unfortunately fall victim to lies since a trial against the seven soldiers accused of murder is currently taking place in Cameroon. This clearly means that the authorities take the rare cases of abuses committed by the armed forces seriously. On this very subject, Tity Agbahey, campaigner for central Africa at Amnesty International, herself recently wrote in “Jeune Afrique”, the message of this trial is clear: in Cameroon, no one is above laws. 

Account settlement and relentlessness: The personal revenge of Ilaria Allegrozi 

For the activist of HRW, it is therefore not a question of allowing justice to be done, but its goal is to make pay to the Cameroonian authorities for its ban on entry into the territory in April 2019. Indeed, upon arrival at the airport, she was told that her presence was unwanted, and for good reason, a few days earlier, an HRW report accused Cameroon of massacre in the English-speaking regions. Problem, the organization does not have the slightest observer on the spot and the testimonies are neither sourced nor verified, in an area where the separatists do not hesitate to threaten, kill and loot in order to put pressure on the population. Noting this bias concerning a conflict against a terrorist organization, the Cameroonian authorities decided not to authorize the presence of Ilaria Allegrozi.
