Lapiro is been used as a testing ground for future sentences; Mr. Fru Ndi be aware your turn is coming. It becomes more complex because, Lapiro is completely innocent, but Mr. Fru Ndi has to clear some clouds about his murder charges.

UnitedstatesofAfrica

It just amazes me how the world sits silent and watches injustice, without even uttering a single word. Where are the protests? where is the outrage? where is the outcry? CAMEROONIANS, WAKE UP AND SET THIS HERO FREE!!

...as for all those Embassies in Yaounde, when it is time to act, you never stand up to the challenge. You only know how to do photo ops with orphans, school children and in front of dilapidated buildings about to receive "aid" from your countries.

MY FREE LAPIRO MOVEMENT IS IN THE WORKS...WE SHALL MARCH TO ETOUDI AND BACK UNTIL HE IS LIBERATED.

CountryFowl

Well for starters, we can begin right here on the forum, write up a protest draft, go through the contents, if it is okay, then everyone can proceed by sending the write up via fax, email, snail mail et cetera to who ever is going to listen and if there is enough pressure, it is possible that Lapiro might be set free.

I ask this question before, where is the moral outrage, where is the zero intolerance to injustice, cruelties, evil et cetera that we ought to show towards those legion and representatives of the devil in this world...?

Equal what the populace may have had against Lapiro, Lapiro has in his own way stood up to these folks, and in way represents the voice of the voiceless, more even than those folks who are parading themselves as free-thinkers & liberators of the poor & the hopeless.

So it is time that we draft up something serious from here.

So we could, for instance begin in such a manner

Free Lapiro & Free the consciousness of Cameroon...

espoir

i agree with the thoery that the judgement is politically motivated.but these serves as a leason to all those cameroonian politicains who want to go and dine with the lion and at the same time want to bite its tail.lapiro might have beaten the figure that fed him.sorry jingaman.

US of Africa,
this is a quote from your posting above. "...as for all those Embassies in Yaounde, when it is time to act, you never stand up to the challenge. You only know how to do photo ops with orphans, school children and in front of dilapidated buildings about to receive "aid" from your countries."
Simple question. Are you making reference to your beloved Chinese here, your lesser of two evils, or are you farthing again?
You are as simple as they come and I will take you down a peg or two.
Foolish boy!

rexon

The situation in Cameroon is just too desperate and all we need is an urgent revolution to liberate our people. These people who have tried and imprisoned Lapiro are the weed in our crops who do not want our progress. These people are just too evil that they do not care about the ordinary Cameroonian. Like anybody else, they know that Lapiro is innocent. He is being punished for standing against corruption, bribery and other despotic acts by the Biya regime. To rightminded Cameroonians, he is a true patriot and a hero.

Hitler Biya can go round and round. He can kill people, force them to wear his CPDM robes and adore him as an emperor. But he will bow one day. His children and all those shouting the CPDM dimabola will go into hiding. We will chase their children abroad to collect our money that they have stolen and invested abroad. He will bow. It is just a matter of time, we will take over our country and start rebuilding all what has been destroyed by Hitler Biya and his murderous CPDM gangsters and bandits masquerading as politicians.

paul

I swear to GOD if eclipse meetup me with that man BIYA i go squeese he to death. That man is the number one terro in the world.

UnitedstatesofAfrica

Danny boy,

You are truly an IDIOT, in every sense of the word. Your foolish ambitions to pick arguments with me is morphing you into stark, raving lunatic. So just because I called China, "the lesser of two evils", I am now the spokesperson for the Chinese cause eh? IDIOT.

Go and check your facts. If you look the activities of the West and China in Africa, saying that China is the lesser of two evils is fact-based and can be statistically proven. There's no doubt about that. Unlike you who runs on undeveloped impulses and fickle emotions, some of us actually like to work with facts. Stating facts about China does not make me a Chinese ambassador you worthless piece of shit.

Instead of constantly spewing rubbish on this forum, you should be drafting strategies on how to deal with the countless illegitimate children you fathered. There must be curse on your penis for all its shameful activities, that is why you are always so restless. Karma is knocking on your door. They shall be your demise you foolish old man. You are not even worth a second of my time on this particular thread about Lapiro so I am switching back to the matter at hand.

FREE LAPIRO
FREE LAPIRO
FREE LAPIRO

Danny Boy

US of Africa,
your last paragraph above shows that I have got you where I wanted. Cough again let the forum hear!! Some diseased piece of shit, not worth a farthing!! I told you before, a social worker might help, but judging from your rant above I think you need a shrink and a surgeon to rid you of your hernia!! Have come across many like you and that is the advice I have given them. It worked for them, why not give it a try? US-"GAGA"-of Africa, I will take you down a peg or two on this forum.
Mark my words. Lapiro sold his soul to the devil when it suited him. His compound was razed to the ground by your lot. Today he has become a "cause celebre" to nitwits like you. He is being jailed for the monies he took from the CPDM and reneging on the contract. He is no hero, but a turncoat to those he fooled with his brand of bovine lyrics!
Stupid boy.

Watesih

USAfrica,
There's an African popular dictum that says, "when a hand incessantly goes behind,it will likely comeback with feaces".What do you really want people to take you for on this forum? The people you treat as lesser evil have been doing what Biya is doing to Lapiro and others in countries like Sudan, Zimbabwe,you name them.You have proclaimed to the world that a blind eye should be turned to the exactions of this lesser evil,because it is not as dangerous as the bigger evil.Here you come today ,and like a bird that has eaten pepper start accusing the world for sitting and watching injustice.Sir,just as you ,the world now sees Biya as a lesser evil,as compared to the 400,000 people your own lesser evil has been helping to exterminate several hundred kilometers from Cameroon.Which world are you calling to come in and help? Do you know that your lesser evil blocks all UN resolutions aimed at curbing the activities of people like Biya? When the President of Iran, When that of North Korea would have inundated the world with nuclear weapons,that may readily fall into other wizards like Biya, and this with the complicity of your 'lesser evil', who are you going to complain to? The embassies you are now accusing have no independence ,because your lesser evil is always breathing down their necks.How blind could you be to these simple facts? You jump from one topic to another like a restless grasshopper,and do you know where you are going to end up? In the mouth of a bird.This is a serious forum to discuss important issues about Cameroon,and not a hideout for circus clowns.It is amazing that your free Lapiro movement has only come up today because he has met the worst.But he has been in detention for six months, and we did not hear you tossing insults on those holding him,as you are wont to doing here.Shame on you!

We can break your statement above into three justifiable arguments:

1-That Lapiro took money from the CPDM for a contract.
2-Renege on the contract.
3-The SDF and other parties that have not been jailed but have been taking money from the CPDM have not renegade on their contract.

Where is the contract agreement and why was it not shown in court? Until you and your CPDM buffons bring us the contract that Lapiro signed and show us in court, we can only surmise that he is being jailed for standing against the despotic Biya regime, just like anyone else.

It is very easy for Biya to fabricate lies and fake rhetoric to incriminate anyone who stands against their despotic actions. When did you start trusting Biya and their ilk that even if they bring forward a contract purportedly signed by Lapiro, you can believe them? So, they are seemingly chasing NJFN because he reportedly signed a contract and is renegade? Just tell me uncle, maybe i am learning something new from you.

Danny boy, when did you started believing those criminals. Justice means different things to different people. When Biya stands in those his kangaroo courts and jail people innocently, the least we want to hear is such justifications coming from your ilk. Everyone have a right for a fair trial in a free society and if anyone is accused of something, then they should be brought forward to tell their own side of the story. In a fair manner, they should be judged and justice need to prevail. As far as i know, if you do not toe the line, the Biya regime would evoke their kangaroo law and bring in Kangaroo judges to incriminate you.

rexon

Danny Boy,

And if Lapiro took money and renegade on a contract, isnt that something your SDF should support wholeheartedly as your SDF have been preaching? Are your ilk and your chairman not advising Cameroonians to take whatever they can from the CPDM arguing that it is their money? In this forum, have'nt you read such fake rhetoric coming from highranking SDF officials, MP's and other stalwarts? Get to grips gentleman. Grow up.

rexon

To add,

A former CRTV journalist visited my place in London and told me frankly that of recent, Lapiro have been selling his own side of the story to the private media. That he has been interviewed many times in STV and he has told the Cameroonian people what actually happened during the operation ghost towns and his connection during that period with the regime. If the CPDM regime wants to dipute the facts, they should debate with him in the open. They should not go around hanging and jailing people with their kangaroo laws in their kangaroo courts.

I am not an SDF militant but i will not support any judgement even for or against NJFN that will come out of their Diboule case. So stop provoking Cameroonians here by telling us bla bla bla about contract and money from the CPDM. Whatever comes out of that courts is evil.

This poetry from Niemoeller says everything there is to say.
-------------

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Martin Niemoeller's poem inscribed on a stone in the New England Holocaust Memorial.

Wikiquote has a collection of quotations related to:
Martin Niemöller

"First they came…" is a poem attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group.

"When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out."

CountryFowl

Dr. Osundare also has a poetry which says a lot on our apathy & indifference.
Niyi Osundare - Not my Business

The poet Niyi Osundare wrote the poem "Not my Business" which has strong overtones of Niemoeller's original poem:
They picked Akanni up one morning
Beat him soft like clay
And stuffed him down the belly
Of a waiting jeep.
What business of mine is it
So long they don't take the yam
From my savouring mouth?
They came one night
Booted the whole house awake
And dragged Danladi out,
Then off to a lengthy absence.
What business of mine is it
So long they don't take the yam
From my savouring mouth?
Chinwe went to work one day
Only to find her job was gone:
No query, no warning, no probe-
Just one neat sack for a stainless record.
What business of mine is it
So long they don't take the yam
From my savouring mouth?
And then one evening
As I sat down to eat my yam
A knock on the door froze my hungry hand.
The jeep was waiting on my bewildered lawn
Waiting, waiting in its usual silence.

I love Lapiro. He plays memorable music and it is a pity he has to spend some of his life in a filthy prison cell. But I love a court system that functions well even better. I want to congratulate the panel of judges who stood by their oath and applied the law to the best of their knowledge without fear and or favour. Protests? Come on! Is there a class of people who are good for the prison cells? Will anyone have been talking of staging protests had it been a nobody out there whom the public thought his imprisonment was unwarranted?And do we lack such examples?Yet, no one said anything about signing petitions or staging protest marches to take them out. Then when it comes to a public figure who erred, the same cameroonians who are clamouring for a bold judiciary start thinking about protest marches in order to thwart the laww. Now, had Lapiro been acquitted of his charges despite the overwhelming evidence, would all those protest-lovers not have said that the same judiciary has been bribed or influenced form above? the problem with our judiciary has been that it has been status -sensitive. in recent times, judges are becoming bolder.It is a welcome development which we should salute loudly.If Lapiro was found guilty then so be it.No one is above he law.

CountryFowl

Quote
"No one is above the law".

This is factual & true to a certain degree in other democratic societies in the world. In the context of this particular case regarding Lapiro & the people of Cameroon, unfortunately we can not hold this statement to be true, the moral is missing.

The government, it's ruling heads, anyone with money, anyone with a gun, anyone with enough chutzpah, craftiness, cunning & guile is above the law.

So in the context of Lapiro & this whole saga, it is not about the law anymore, it is about silencing anyone who is/was in opposition to the amendment of the Cameroonian constitution. This is what this is all about.

" Will anyone have been talking of staging protests had it been a nobody out there whom the public thought his imprisonment was unwarranted?And do we lack such examples? "

Many people are talking & protesting in their own individual ways and as their capacity permits, they do not write it here, as it is not uncommon for government agents to peruse what we are writing
here, for future use against them. There are even cases of individuals being followed & intimidated in some European countries because they dare to voice out their point of view.


" Technically the case of Lapiro stands out, for the simple reason that the media deemed it necessary to sensitize the Cameroonian public on his plight & situation.
Why..?
Lapiro has been in the public's consciousness for a very long time now, unmerited..? No..
Once more, for the simple reason that Lapiro, has by his own initiative been contributing to the cultural & aesthetical values of that society. Specifically in such areas as the language arts & the humanities. [We do not need to enumerate them here or show proof of this..!]

So off course, Lapiro is somehow a symbolic figurehead & a spokesman for a particular segment of Cameroonian society..? [ The untouchables, those whom are looked upon with contempt, despised for
not meeting the constructed standards of upper class Cameroonians, or so ]

He may not be liked by the "intellectuals", we do not even have to like him in any case, the matter stands out clearly that he has contributed to the cultural heritages of Cameroon.

Now what are those ruling judges contributing to society..?? Keeping Cameroonian society clean & safe from crimes..? upholding the constitution, norms, laws & other societal values..???
what is this government contributing to cameroonian society...???
The answer to any of the above is axiomatic.


" Now, had Lapiro been acquitted of his charges despite the overwhelming evidence, would all those protest-lovers not have said that the same judiciary has been bribed or influenced form above? "

overwhelming evidence..? a few paid government witnesses.. preprogrammed to recite from a well rehearsed script, unfortunately even a child could perceive clearly that, a divisional officer,
a certain chief from Muyuka & a few local opportunist, could not possibly be credible witnesses.

The only overwhelming evidences which every single Cameroonian in his/her sleep can recite like a morning prayer are the evils, misery, suffering & sorrows which has been visited upon them by their very own Government. The bloodshed from that government can fill lake Awing, Lake Barombi, the dam at Bamessing & all the other smaller lakes in Cameroon combined. [Once more we do not need to show proof, it is already self-evident..:) ]

Certainly the word to forgive must exist in the local dialects & our own personal & individual vocabularies...? or..?

What exactly is Lapiro's transgressions..?? & why is vindictiveness, vendetta, unjustifiable vengeance, so pervasive in our culture...?? why do we gloat & rejoice with gleefulness & self-righteousness when a man unfortunately falls into the hands of this government..??

In plain simple language it is called "Ill-will ".

If as a people, we are truthfully seeking a change but can still have this amount of an uncalled for, unjustifiable "Malice", then.. the phrase to use is " God help Cameroon....!!!!"

If people like Lapiro are not good enough for Cameroon, who is good enough..??
If Lapiro, a "self educated" protest artist, who has by his own initiative & free will, offered his gifts & talents to Cameroonian society & the government thinks he is good only for the prison yard & can not be forgiven for a few ill advised decisions taken under dubious & other mitigating circumstances..then it is only the God of the universe who can be able to transform Cameroonian society & the mentality of its people & children.

We are tolerant of the ruling head, we are tolerant of every kind of transgression meted out to the Cameroonian people by it's government, we are tolerant of greed, of every known evil on this Earth, which even the devil himself/herself is timid in committing....! but we become moral judges & self righteous ethical experts who can at our like or dislike jubilate with glee & celebrate the fall of Lapiro...???

Off course we can celebrate the judiciary as having done an exemplary job in banishing Lapiro to the prison yard, we can also celebrate the historic performance of the courts & justice system for it's universal insight & perceptiveness in catching Lapiro hands down, in his moment of weakness, this is all fine.
But the same system set the killer & vociferous monster Fon Doh Gah Gwanyin of Balikumbat free...!!
should we celebrate such a system...?? a man who kills , takes away life at his own leisure & will, should be walking free...!! & we will invoke proverbs to celebrate the fall of Lapiro...???

We could also erect a monument for the court & the justice system, that will read, today we have been able to trap, subdue & hold down Lapiro de Mbanga.
The only issue with this kind of epitaph is that, it shows once more that we are little people, with a very narrow & sorrowful outlook towards life.

There's some conventional wisdom in jungle politics that says ,"If you can`t beat them ,join them",but the policy of the rotten regime in Yaounde has been that,"If they don't join us,beat them".The Lapiro saga has been a stable recipe for Cameroonians for a long time now.There's no single Cameroonian who doesn`t know the stuff Lapiro is made off.Lapiro's run in with the agents of death in the government can be summed up in two phrases;corruption of innocence, and reducing to silence the courageous.What is the motivation behind this? sully his image in front of his numerous fans,there by eliminating his ability to rally thousands to the opposition cause.And what is the best tool to use to dent this enthusiasm? Money!Some schools of thought speak of three million, yet others raise the bar to 20,used to corrupt Lapiro.Here we are not talking about 20 million francs that Lapiro would have embezzled as compared to Ondo Ndong's 500 billion,Meva'a Meboutu 53 billion, you name them.We are talking about a regime at bay ,desperately and forcefully trying to stuff someone of money, just like a cruel foster mother will do to an orphan.What if the child takes a quick introspection, and refuses to eat? That is Lapiro's crime;that he quickly held himself together, and rejected conventional wisdom.
For those of us who may want to know.People play music for diverse reasons.
Some take it for a hobby,others play it because they want to seek for notice, and yet others take it for a career.All these people have a following depending on the ears the music falls on.Lapiro is what can best be described in French as,"Musicien or artiste engage'".His style, language,message
and support base,are inextricably linked to
the social situation of the country.The themes of his songs are wide ranging;from prostitution to parenthood,from political victimization to corruption.His musical instinct draws its capital from the woes of the down-trodden.
The ilks of Lapiro have always been a liability to established orders or governments in place in despotic countries:
Alpha Blondy in Cote D'Ivoire,Lucky Dube in South Africa,Fela in Nigeria etc.This because the effect of music in politics is devastating.With the release of his album
"Constitution Constipee", Biya's anger has been hanging on a short fuss for a long time, and he was looking forward to an opportunity to feed-fat the ancient grudge he bore Lapiro.
Billions and billions of CFA francs are lying fallow in moleholes and foreign bank accounts, while those who deposited this hard-earned tax payers' money there are having a good rest in Kondengui,trying out the policy of "Detention preventive".If justice was expeditive as it was with Lapiro
,we would have got back the money they stole from us.But to the amazement and greatest displeasure of Cameroonians,large sums of money and weapons were discovered under their pillows right there at Kondengui
These guys can no longer be called hardened criminals,but simply the human face of what evil is all about.
There's one thing that nature has endowed Biya with;the ability to attract and groom thiefs.Few days ago ,one of his handlers by name Emane,tried to grap his Presidential Suitcase crammed full with money,and vanish into nature.But he was stopped half-way into his designs when the Swiss guards mounting security at the hotel the president stayed alerted the Presidential security about the presence of a bus at the gate ,waiting to whisk off the would-be fastman with his booty.From his helicopter having an accident during a reconnaissance mission in Yaounde,to his bodyguard trying to cheat him out of his or is it our money, and then to his being booed in Newyork,Cameroonians have an eerie feeling thinking of this man as their leader.Just imagine the waste,and finally imagine his repressive forces dragging Lapiro,a parent from the hands of his heart-broken wife and whisking him off to prison.
It id frighteningly stupid and sickeniing to see the court fine Lapiro 280 million for perceived crimes,when this same court cannot recuperate billions that went up in flames pretending to buy an aircraft for the president himself.Justice my foot!

Mbu.B

Are we hereby saying that, even if it was proven Lapiro received a bribe in the turbulent 90's to curb or reverse the piercing lyrics, it's okay because some manager or minister embezzled so much money?
Is Lapiro a lesser evil because he *sold his conscience for less than 20MFcfa?
The minister stole billions in silence and did what he had to do, to bury democracy by their various sponsorships of foreign newspapers to write good about Cameroon and all the other hell of things the stolen funds did.

Lapiro is widely believed to have soiled his hands and most of us here don't dispute the allegation, thereby selling the people's conscience at a time when he represented that and his music could move mountains.

Whisking the family man that he is to prison obviously attracts sympathy, given that he wasn't sufficietly proven guilty or tied to the crime.In these case, doubts exist, so he should have been released pure and simple. It's damaging to justice and the conscience to imprison a seemingly innocent person.

However, even assuming that he soiled his hands, he has been proving apologetic. Wrestling up his warm and engaging songs again and staying daringly critical
of the apocalyptic regime. At a personal level, he is more like a hero.

This brings to mind this thought..Does his present misfortune plead our forgiveness for his past entanglement with the regime?

However you sum the situation, Lapiro was looking 'cheerful' going to prison, I believe he was saying to himself "I paid my dues, to the government and I washed my face
with the people"

Kumbaboy

Prison for Lapiro would be his monastery.

When he is released, the songs from his experience would make trees dance. Watch out!

"It is amazing that your free Lapiro movement has only come up today because he has met the worst.But he has been in detention for six months, and we did not hear you tossing insults on those holding him,as you are wont to doing here" - WateSHIT

Mr. WateSHIT, for your information, our free Lapiro movement has been in action ever since February of this year. You might want to check your facts before you open your stinking mouth to spew rubbish.

We have met a lot of obstructions but at least we have doing something physical and practical. What have you done WateSHIT? what have you done? all you do is sit in your one-room apartment in Europe, go and wash plates, log on your Made-in-china computers, go to the postnewsline.com and start writing long monologues, copying lines (verbatim by the way) that you saw in some Karl Marx textbook. WateSHIT, you are a piece of SHIT. I do not take people like you, or that lustful IDIOT aka Danny Old Fart, seriously.

The Sun newspaper (Limbe) Gunmen Besiege Limbe Banks, CFA240M Vanishes


28 Sep 2008, 6:35 PM There is now a very heavy deployment of troops in Limbe, following an early morning raid on banks in the city. A group of heavily armed men of the underworld early Sunday, September 28 laid siege on some banks situated in Down Beach, Limbe for about three hours. In a shoot out during the early morning raid, a lady was shot dead while three banks, Amity , Societe Generale (SGBC) and SCB-Credit Agricole were intensely attacked, ransacked and robbed at varying degrees.

According to eye witness accounts, the group of about 40 to 50 also attempted attacking the South West Regional Office of the Central Bank but was repelled by security officers posted to man the edifice.

The group practically cordoned off the area between the entrance to Atlantic Beach Hotel and the Central Bank round about, a distance of about 300 metres. The area also hosts BICEC bank, AGF Insurance, Presbook and Presprint, Eco bank, the office of the Senior Divisional Officer, AES Sonel payment office, amongst others.
The early morning raid began around 1 am as residents around the area and those in far off neigbourhoods were rudely awaken from sleep as gun shots and sounds from explosives and grenades rocked and rented the air till around some minutes to four o'clock.

Terrified, the population remained in-doors till about 5 am after a consignment of Cameroonian security men made up of the police; gendarmes and the army had rallied to confront the hoodlums. Night jars were also jolted out from the many entertainment spots located in the Down Beach area and scampered to their homes as the gunmen temporarily took control of this neighbourhood. A Limbe City official who lives in the area said he peeped through one of his windows and saw two heavily armed men dressed in black mufti with faces concealed and sophisticated rifles dangling dangerously across their chests, parading the road by his home. He bit a quiet retreat to his room and started making calls to local and central administrative and security officials.

The intervention of the security forces came almost two hours after the raid began and was not enough to prevent the robbing of the banks. Two truck loads of military men from Man' O War Bay and belonging to the Rapid Intervention Unit (B.I.R) was kept at bay for almost thirty minutes around the Manga Williams Bridge in Mbonjo by the marauding gangsters during an exchange of heavy gunfire.

A young military officer confided to us that the robbers balked off and disappeared into the night when they ran out of firing power. The shot lady whose identity we could not get by press time was shot inside a bus belonging to FINI hotel. The bus was ferrying customers from the hotel's night club and got trapped around the Central Bank area where the hoodlums had pitched their nets. The bandits opened fire indiscriminately on the bus as it tried to make a u-turn. The lady was fatally wounded and eight other passengers suffered serious injuries. The tyres of the bus were all flattened.

The Sun also learnt that the General Manager of the C.D.C, Mr. Henry Njalla Quan, who was returning with his kids from visits in Douala and Tiko got caught in the melee. A bullet hit the bonnet of his car on the driver's side leaving a bit dent. Nobody was, however, hurt. Njalla Quan lives in Mbonjo.

A resident who lives close to the S.G.B.C bank told The Sun that he had barely returned to his abode after a late night outing when the gang accosted three engine-powered boats around the shores in Down Beach near the "Mars Snacks". He said they were all dressed in black from head to toe with perforations around their eyes and wore a white ribbon around their heads.

According to our informant, the three banks were attacked simultaneously with the use of explosives. Amity bank it seems was hardest hit as the robbers blew open the main door, got into the strong room and blew open the safe. All the offices were completely turned upside down. When we were leaving the place, a bailiff had been called in by the bank officials to make an assessment of the damage.

Unconfirmed sources say almost FCFA 240 million cash was carted away from Amity.


At the SGBC, the marauders did not get into the strong room but every other thing was torn to shreds by the force and magnitude of the explosions inside the banks. The main door of the bank was also torn apart.

At the SCB-Credit Agricole, the main door resisted the wrath of the gangsters but they still succeeded in getting in through one of the side doors. None of the bank authorities accepted to talk to the press to give an idea of how much damage each bank incurred in terms of cash and material damage.

Neither also could administrative officials accept talking to us . The Governor of the South West Province, Louis Eyeya Zanga, Fako S.D.O, Jules Marcellin Ndjaga, Limbe D.O, Peter Mbongo Itoe, Limbe City Government Delegate, Samuel Lifanda Ebiama, security and military top brass of the province and Division were at the scene early this morning.

A surprise presence was that of Defence Minister, Remy Ze Meka . Ze Meka arrived Limbe by 8 am from Yaounde after learning of the attack. Already there are many interpretations being given to this high level and sophisticated bank robbery and its perpetrators.

While some say it is the handiwork of the Niger Delta rebels who of recent have been attacking Cameroon's military and administrative positions in the Bakassi area others are mooting that the Southern Cameroon National Council, SCNC, which has been calling for the secession of the two Anglophone provinces from the Republic of Cameroon may be at work especially coming barely three days to October 1, a day the SCNC celebrates as its Independence Day.

However, many critics and observers are alarmed by the fact that it took local security forces almost two hours to get to the scene of the attack and confront the gunmen despite the heavy noise of gunfire and explosions that drowned every other noise. More alarming is the sense of a failed intervention as none of the assailants was caught.

As this report was being filed, truck loads of troops were being drafted in the city raising fears that the town itself would be under siege making the free movements of persons and goods seriously constrained in the days and weeks ahead.

SCNC? now that should be one of the most foolish speculations I have ever heard in a long time. My condolences to the banks who had to go through this ordeal. The massive amounts of money stolen has left me in shock. I hope the government has seen that they need to up their game when it comes to security.

As for Njalla Quan's car being hit by bullets, the thought of Njalla Quan and those his obese children cringing at the sight of gun shots is truly hilarious...hahahahahaha. I do not wish him harm, I just think that it would be a hilarious sight to witness. With that said, thank God is alive and doing well.

Have a good sunday!

USAfrica,
The uprising in Cameroon began during the third week of February this year,
precisely on February 25th,and four days after,on February 29th it was brought under control.Minister Amidou Yaya first blamed the cause on a traffic accident,only to backtrack few days after and accuse the SDF and its chairman.Fru Ndi struck back promising to take him to court.There was absolutely no mention of the name Lapiro to be at the root of this uprising in February.
How comes you started a free Lapiro movement
in February 2008 when Lapiro had not yet been accused of anything?Look I have already warned you on this forum.This is not a place for rustics,but for cold headed people trying to ponder about the situation in their country.Imagine a grown up like you coming to an international forum like this one and showing how low you are with this type of language,"As for Njalla Quan's car being hit by bullets, the thought of Njalla Quan and those his obese children cringing at the sight of gun shots is truly hilarious...hahahahahaha".You've come here to gossip about people and their families,
not to share ideas with others.
You continue to show people here that you are just all fuss and no substance.Think
for a while the compassion you have for the banks for losing huge sums of money,but the lighthearted way you treat people who were in harm's way.How would you want the government to up security, and the same time want to see Njalla Quan and his children caught in the cross fire.Only a sadist of your nature can make fodder of others misfortune! If you want us to discuss ideas here,then we will do just that.But if you are out for a hit job,then know some of us are past masters on standing up to bullies.Never forget this,"If
you want to tread on the wing,you should have wings to fly"

WateSHIT,

You are an old and helpless fart, so it is understandable why you don't have a sense of humor. You have the audacity to say that
"and the same time want to see Njalla Quan and his children caught in the cross fire."
- WateSHIT

Can you please quote from my write-up, VERBATIM, when I insinuated that I want to see Njalla Quan and his family caught in a cross-fire? please quote, word for word. Your blockhead seems to be failing you. What I said was that the thought of Njalla Quan and his obese children panicking at the sight of gun shots is hilarious. I didn't say I wanted them to be in that scenario nor did I say that I wanted any harm to happen to them. I simply SAID THAT PICTURING THEM IN THAT SCENARIO IS FUNNY. Why it is funny? I happen to know Njalla Quan and I happen to have met him a few times. He's a very cheerful and upbeat man ( a trait I would advise you to pick up. Your pretentious up tightness, something you try to copy from the British, is rather working against you). Being the outgoing character that he is, picturing him in such a scenario is truly funny because of his facial expressions and the comments he must have made. Lighten up, OLD FART and advice your ill-fated, self-deprecating brother Danny Boy to do same.

As for the free-Lapiro-movement, while I see that you have memorized some dates in February, you failed to remember that as early as February 7th, the impending doom of Lapiro was already in talks. It was widely speculated and some people felt that it would wrong if the government reprimanded in such a vile way or without a fair trial. That is when some individuals started such movements. I didn't boast about creating one of such movements...I just got actively involved. But how would you know these things? you are sitting in your one-room apartment in Europe, selling ice-cream and married to a white woman to get your "dokis"...you and your sex-addict of a friend, Danny boy.

Lapiro is no saint. We all know that. But he has paid his dues and he has paid them ten times over...maybe the government should start fetching for thieves like Danny Boy, the ones who ate government money, received education due to government money and then ungratefully decided to stay in Europe, married white women and "Secured" dokis. What goes around comes around. As they say, Karma is a B..........


Have a wonderful Monday Ladies and Gentlemen
