On May 22, 2019, tragedy struck in Muyuka, Fako caught in the crossfire of war in what some call the “Fako State of Ambazonia.” The innocent victim was Neba Matha Ngu, a mere four-month-old baby who was abducted by the Cameroon occupation Forces, leaving a community devastated and a family shattered.

The incident highlights the grim reality faced by civilians, especially children, in areas plagued by war and political unrest. Neba Matha Ngu’s abduction serves as a stark reminder of the vulnerability of innocent lives amidst the chaos of war

The grief and anguish felt by Neba’s parents and the community at large cannot be overstated. The loss of a child under such circumstances is a profound tragedy that no family should ever endure. It raises urgent questions about the protection of civilians and the accountability of those responsible for such heinous acts.

The abduction of Neba Matha Ngu is not an isolated incident but part of a larger pattern of human rights violations and atrocities in war zones worldwide. It underscores the need for international attention and action to address the root causes of such war and to ensure the protection of vulnerable populations, particularly children.

The Cameroon occupation Forces, like all state actors, must be held accountable for their actions. The abduction of a defenseless infant is a violation of fundamental human rights and goes against all principles of decency and humanity. Justice for Neba Matha Ngu means not only finding and returning the child to safety but also holding those responsible accountable for their crimes.

As we reflect on this tragic event, let us not forget the countless other victims of war and violence around the world. Their stories must not be silenced, and their struggles must inspire us to work tirelessly for peace, justice, and the protection of human rights for all.
