Armed Conflict, NWR: St Theresia Kumbo looses Pupil as local explosive detonates



Children have in recent times become victims in the course of the Anglophone Crisis turned an armed conflict that hit the Northwest region for over 5 years.


Class six pupils of saint Theresia primary school (STS) Kumbo by the names Fonyuy Dora and Kelisha were victims of an explosion around the Kumbo council, Tuesday May 24th 2022.


Sources in Kumbo described the incident as "fatal". Fonyuy Dora lost her life as the local explosive detonated and another pupil who's name Civiclens got as Kelisha rushed to the theatre at thenearest hospital, as she sustained injuries.

This incident befall these pupils in their quest to report for their first school leaving Certificate practicals at GPS Tobin.

"After being dropped at the school by their relative, they realized they had forgotten their equipments and a teacher asked them to go back home and bring them. On their way, a local explosive plated along the way was detonated. It happened claiming the life of Dora", Limnyuy, a source in Kumbo recounted.

These are not the first victims as children who loose their lives in their strive, pursuing education. In kumba, kids were shot in school, in Buea a little girl was shot on her way to school, In Nkwen-Bamenda it was a similar scenario, the situation in Kumbo cannot be described differently.

These pupils whose names Civiclens got as Dora and kelisha, belong to different families and Dora is a twin. The question of how many more children, youths will  continue to loss their lives in the course of the ongoing crisis remains a pillow ponder.
