#BBCAfricaEye turns its focus on Unseen Civil War ongoing in Anglophone Cameroon | WATCH | BellaNaijaRumours of a silent war ongoing in the anglophone part of Cameroon have been filtering through for months.

It was reported in October 2017 that the internet was shut off in that part of the country to quiet dissenters from spreading the news.

State-sanctioned kills have also been reported, with soldiers accused of shooting people.

The BBC Africa Eye has collated and analysed the videos from the killings. Their analysis is a saddening and heartbreaking one, revealing a civil war in the country, with too many killings.

See the documentary below:

    Like most crisis in Africa, little is talked about on mainstream media. Residents of North West and South West regions of Cameroon are under siege by #Cameroon military following orders from an 86 year old who has ruined this country for 40+ years. Women, children, men sleep in bushes, villages have been completed burnt down, military goes from door to door in some areas, remove young men from homes and shoot them point Blanc. Such barbaric actions over the past year has increased the call for secession and many civilians are radicalised on daily basis. Local militias are now in many villages claiming to provide self protection. Despite all these atrocities a useless African Union, United Nations are all mute. One can’t even expect neighbouring countries to react cause they are all birds of a feather. Nigeria has Buhari who can’t solve crucial issues, Equatorial Guinea has Obiang who is another fossil like Biya, Tchad is a lost case & CAR is chaotic. Where will intervention come from?

    Jesus Christ is Lord over All. Even though we don´t obey HIM, because of His Love He will make a way for this evil work of the devil to come to an end in Cameroon and Africa Amen. We should pray and stop complaining like the above writer, because complaing and accusing will not help Africa okay. God Bless Nigeria and Africa in Jesus Christ Name Amen.

      Care to enlighten us why all the casting and binding across Africa has never built hospitals, roads, voted for visionary leaders. Coming here on some high horse saying sweet nothing. Were Africans taken into slavery cause they didn’t pray? Were they colonised cause they didn’t pray? Is Singapore, China, many countries in Europe, UAE, US structured because they pray more? Y’all contribute for pastors to buy jets when same money can be used to empower youths, create businesses, build community infrastructure etc. Africans truly are the architect of their problems.

      Faith and works go together. What you are calling complains is the works that is needed for the faith you talked about to work. How does the world know what is happening in Cameroon if the people don’t shout out. It is insensitive of you to ask someone not to speak out (Your version of complaining) and only pray when you should be encouraging them to do both.

      This comment made my skin crawl. Chai, I fear una. How can a normal person still say people are complaining about the atrocities happening Africa. Even God himself gave us heart, mind and soul for a reason. To sort ourselves out as human beings. He will not intervene until we human beings take action. He will not help until we are ready to turn away from evil and wickedness. Africans are the most “religious” people yet their hearts are far away from God. People who use religion to cover up. THey do empty prayers.
      We are not even complaining enough, we are not fighting at all. The way we are complacent is disturbing,
      We cannot continue in such wickedness and expect God to help.

      The fact that you even said ” evenn though we dont obey Him”

      Please speak for yourself..i obey my FATHER, I live for Him, i walk in His righteousness and guess what even i still face trials.
      Dont sell a lie to the masses…accepting Jesus and praying wont solve all your problems. We are strengthened by Him to DO THE WORK. OURSELVES. Why do you think He gave us dominion over the earth. This is our teritory. if your neighbour is hungry and all you do is pray and not feed him, he will die of starvation. The Bible is clear

      James 2:4-18
      What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

      If all you could do was CONSOLE Tony…that would have been far better than dismiss his hurt as “complains”

    Bella, as usual, you guys are always selling after the market has been closed. I’ve made comments on this several times on this blog but you never post. I wonder what mosquito bit you this time.

      Hello Liz,

      We sent you a couple of emails to get more information from; we were trying to gather as much information on the story… not in the comments section. Unfortunately, we received no response from you.

      We appreciate your repeated comments on the subject and hope the conflict is resolved soon.

      Love & Light.

    Can you see them? Lawyers claiming to be activists. (lol)

    The death of civilization will be because of lawyers and Accountants. the sooner we human beings realize every single man-made problem is caused by these guys, the sooner we resolve our conflicts and move forward.

    And if the west is listening, can you please stop selling technology including weapons to Africans?

    Too many instances where the dumber tribe acquired western weapons to wipe out the smarter tribe.

    And since there is no better method of genetic engineering than war at the moment, the vast majority of Africans today are descendants those tribes.

    This is why the concept of inalienable rights seems an alien concept.

    The only reason i can see for continued supply of military technology to africans, is a watered down continent that can then be easily manipulated.

    Now thousands to conflict fleeing individuals have entered into a N20k minimum wage society, only God knows what provisions have been put in place. and lets hope its not enough to swing an election or cause an epidemic. .

    Dont get me wrong, i’m not saying we shouldn’t help if we can Gods knows they have rights, but am saying have we helped ourselves?

    Those that continue to deliberately inhibit our ability to help ourselves should also know that when people can not help themselves they will be disadvantaged too when the time comes to help others, its just common sense.

    I hope these two useless professions are keeping receipts for the darkness and backwardness they keep creating for the world..

    Ehn, ehn somebody said let us pray. You mean Africans are not praying enough? It is unfortunate that most African issues arise because people are demanding accountability, fairness and basically freedom. Our problem is a lack of love, emphaty and sympathy for each other. When we start loving each other we’ll begin to do what’s right. The fact that it is the BBC exposing this is a discussion for another day. As Africans we have work to do, hard work to do.
