Bar. Agbor Balla made the following statement from the office of Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa.
Since October 2017, after the first military raids, 106 villages have been raided, burned down and their inhabitants have either partially or completely deserted the villages. 65 villages in the South West Region and 41 in the North West Region have been attacked, burned down partially or completely and deserted either completely or partially. Out of 65 affected villages in the South West Region, 45 are severely affected while out of 41 in the North West Region, 25 are severely affected.
Destruction of civilian property, wanton and wide-scale pillage and burning of villages by the Cameroonian military constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity. These crimes and acts are to be thoroughly investigated and perpetrators brought before the competent authorities.
Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa has documented evidences of these crimes, alongside eyewitness testimonies, video and photographic records.
