Ngarbuh massacre: Lejeune Mbella Mbella tells the UN everything

Cameroonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Lejeune Mbella Mbella is in Geneva, Switzerland to take part in the work of the 43rd session of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, scheduled from February 24 to March 20, 2020.

Since the massacre of the civilian population on February 14, 2020 in Ngarbuh in the North-West Region, with several children among the victims, the Cameroonian government has been in the crosshairs of international organizations which suspect its army of being the author of this massacre that has shaken the whole world. 

In its counter-offensive, the Yaoundé regime misses no opportunity to exonerate its defense forces. 

Thus, on February 24, during his speech during the inaugural day of the 43rd session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, the Cameroonian Minister of External Relations, Lejeune Mbella Mbella, accused the secessionists of '' being the authors of the abuses recorded in the Southwest and the North West, the two regions of his country plagued by a civil war.

According to the member of the Cameroonian government, the separatists regularly use the civilian populations as human shields in defiance of the rights and the life of the said populations. "Despite these unacceptable actions, the Cameroonian defense and security forces remain and will always remain resolutely committed and will spare, as far as possible, all human life in the professional conduct of their missions" declared MINREX to defend the regular army.

He also took the opportunity to insist on the death toll of five dead including four children on February 14 in Ngarbuh. "Some bodies have, without any investigation, alleged the massacre of 22 people, including women, and 14 children perpetrated by the defense and security forces," said the Cameroonian chief of diplomacy. In the process, Lejeune Mbelle Mbelle took stock of the armed struggles against the separatists (English-speaking regions) and against Boko haram (Far North region), then on the management of refugees in his country.
