Unfortunate Incident in Buea : South West Governor Appeals For Calm

He promised the population that gathered at the esplanade of his office that all those involved in the killing will be sanctioned accordingly.

The population of Buea, South West Regional capital, awoke to an ordeal yesterday October 14, 2021. Six-year-old Enpindiale Tchungia Carolaise, a Class One pupil of CUIB A and T Catholic Primary School Molyko, being transported to school was shot dead by a uniform Officer.
It was in the morning hours, between the central market and the Molyko check-point opposite the Catholic Divine Mercy Co-Cathedral, when an exchange ensued between a Gendarmerie Officer and one Enongene Lizette who was driving a private car with Carolaise and other school children inside. Eye witness accounts say Lizette was driving off and the Officer opened fire burying bullets in the head of the pupil 
The irate population administered mob justice on the uniform Officer who killed Carolaise. At press time the Officer was feared dead after severe beatings on the scene of the incident. Upon learning of the macabre, the population of Buea emptied itself into the streets denouncing the act. They matched, wailing, with the corpse of Carolaise some eight kilometres from Molyko to South West Governor’s Office. Businesses were shut down in the whole town and taxis ghosted the roads.
On receiving the population with the corpse, Bernard Okalia Bilai, South West Governor, told them that some of those involved in the killing of Enpindiale Tchungia Carolaise had been arrested. “This child could be your child or my child. I am doing everything possible in the South West Region to see that children go to school. How is it that a child on her way to school is killed? So, it is a shock. You should rest assured that all those who did this will pay accordingly,” the Governor said to the population and appealed for calm while arrangements would be made to preserve the corpse, clarify the case and a befitting burial organised. “This is an atrocity. But, no matter how painful the situation is, let us be in peace,” the Governor continued.
