Yaoundé, November 08, 2018
A group of terrorists burst in the morning of Tuesday, October 30, 2018, around 10 am in Bambui, a rural town located 14 kilometers from Bamenda in the Tubah District, Mezam Department, to attack the university zone. and the Tubah Territorial Brigade.
At the same time, the American Rev. Charles Truman Wesco, who was passing by, received a shot dump from a 12-gauge oblique fire shot by a sniper terrorist. Several pellets reached the victim at the parietal level of his skull, under the lower right jaw and at the level of his shoulder. He will succumb to these wounds later.
The Minister Delegate to the Presidency of the Republic of Defense issued a statement after the incident, stating that an investigation would be immediately opened.
After the first elements of the investigation provided by the Police Officers of the North West Gendarmerie Legion, the remains were transferred to the Yaoundé General Hospital, where an autopsy was performed in the presence of the Cameroonian forensic doctors. Americans, a representative of the United States Embassy in Cameroon and the Government Commissioner at the Yaounde Military Tribunal.
During the autopsy, the shots from the body confirmed that the shots fired by the Reverend Charles Truman Wesco did indeed come from a 12-caliber weapon used as we know, by secessionist terrorists operating in the United States. Northwestern and Southwestern regions.
The impacts left by the sinkers actually occupy the right parietal part of the skull, the right side and the right shoulder of the victim; all things that confirm the position of the shooter posted to the right of the vehicle, position occupied by the secessionists during the incident.
Despite the evidences that have just been mentioned, the name MIMI MEFO TAKOMBO, presented as a journalist in service in the audiovisual media of the Equinoxe group has, in a post dated October 30, 2018 at the address Mim237@Mimimefo237-2j , declared peremptorily that the American missionary was killed by the Cameroonian army.
I give here all of this post published in English, I quote: “Bambili in pictures! Doors destroyed, ransacked houses, animals killed. It has the picture of a war zone, where civilians are caught by “stray bullets” targeted killings. A missionary has died today after he was shot by soldiers, “end quote.
As we can see, the words of Mrs. Mimi Mefo Takombo which, in addition to altering the reality of the facts and spreading untruths manifest, do not fail to discredit our Defense Forces, highly detrimental to the morale of troops, while conducting a fair and legal battle against criminal hordes driven by secessionist intent.
Appointed to answer the Coastal Gendarmerie Legion on November 7, 2018, Mrs. MIMI MEFO TAKOMBO was heard and then referred to the Government Commissioner at the Military Court of Douala.
Mrs MIMI MEFO TAKOMBO, who of course benefits from the presumption of innocence, is pursued in flagrante delicto, before the Military Court of Douala for the following facts:
Propagation of false news, new lies likely to harm public authorities or national cohesion, facts provided for and repressed by Article 113 of the Criminal Code;
Outrage to constituted bodies and officials, incitement to revolt against the Government and Institutions of the Republic, facts provided for and repressed by Article 154 of the Criminal Code.
The respondent was later remanded in New Bell Central Prison in Douala.
