The prevalence of violence meted daily on unarmed civilians provokes the question; Where are we heading to? Is everyone a suspect in this day and age? Seven young men were reported shot by unknown forces without provocation in Buea, the South West Region of Cameroon. This incident happened on September 27, 2018. These boys who were Muslims had assembled for the morning prayer. According to eye witnesses their only crime was trying to pray as its their Religious obligation. To show the heinous nature of the deed, their corpses were littered on the streets.

This is just one among numerous arbitrary killings which have been carried out on innocent civilians since the Anglophone crisis began.
