Meluf Village burn down.

In a shocking turn of events, the peaceful village of Meluf in Bamenda, Mezam State, Ambazonia, was violently invaded by Cameroon occupation forces. The harrowing incident unfolded in the early hours of the morning, shattering the tranquility of the community and leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.

Eyewitnesses recount a scene of terror as the occupation forces descended upon Meluf Village and burn it down, initially arriving on foot before deploying military vehicles, including an armored car with a menacing machine gun mounted on top, at least three military trucks, and a bulldozer. The sudden onslaught caught residents off guard, plunging them into a nightmare they never imagined.

One of the most distressing accounts involves the brutal intrusion into the home of a 45-year-old man. The forces, with utter disregard for human life, shot his aunt and abducted his uncle, leaving behind a family shattered by violence and uncertainty. This act of aggression is not an isolated incident but part of a larger pattern of abuse and intimidation by the occupying forces.

The invaders showed no mercy as they forcibly entered at least 80 homes in Meluf, ransacking and looting possessions while callously setting ablaze seven houses, turning cherished memories into ash. The echoes of gunfire and the sight of military vehicles roaming the once serene streets have left scars that will not easily heal.

“We woke up to the sound of guns. A soldier broke the window,” recounted multiple witnesses, highlighting the sheer terror that gripped Meluf during the invasion.

The international community must condemn such atrocities and hold accountable those responsible for these heinous acts. The people of Meluf deserve justice, peace, and the right to live free from fear and oppression. As the world bears witness to this tragedy, we must stand in solidarity with the victims and demand an end to the violence perpetrated against innocent civilians in Ambazonia.
