In Cameroon Journalist Njoka Kingsley Grabbed By Biya As UN Guterres Refuses Press Qs

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 7 – As more and more civilians have been killed by the Cameroon government of Paul Biya, absentee president for 37 years, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has been silent.

Inner City Press was informed by sources in Guterres' own 38th floor office that Guterres had made a deal with Biya's UN Ambassador Tommo Monthe as chair of the UN Budget Committee for administrative favors in exchange for silence on the slaughter or "subduing" of the Anglophone minority.

When Inner City Press asked about it, Guterres used UN Security to rough up Inner City Press right after it interviewed Monthe, and to ban it from entering the UN, 700 days and counting.

 On June 2, news that Buea-based journalist Samuel Wazizi a/k/a Samuel Ajiekah Abuwe was killed. According to Equinoxe Television, he died within a few days in detention from wounds and injuries sustained after his arrest - that is, he was killed by Biya's forces. And Guterres' UN has refused each and every question about Cameroon from the Press - Guterres is complicit and corrupt.

 On June 3, 4 and 5 Inner City Press asked Guterres and his spokesperson Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming in writing about the killing of Wazizi - no answer at all. On June 4 Inner City Press put the question to Guterres himself as he went from mansion to Mercedes, here - nothing.

  Now the question arises: where is disappeared journalist  Njoka Kingsley Fomonyuy, "taken into custody by plainclothes security officers on May 16, 2020 remains a mystery.  Sources familiar with the incident say he was taken from his house in Douala by armed men who only identified themselves as ‘Surete National’.   As noted by Mimi Mefo, he's from Kumbo, Bui Division in the North West Region. He studied Journalism and Mass Communication in the University of Zaria in Nigeria, from where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1990.     In Cameroon, the freelance journalist worked with Magic FM and as a senior writer for Popular Catholic biweekly Magazine “L’Effort Camerounais” in Douala. Before whisking Njoka Kingsley away, the armed men ransacked his house apparently searching for possible evidence that could implicate him.  Without finding what they were after, the armed men asked Njoka’s wife to hand his office keys and his identification documents to them. They took an HP laptop from Njoka’s house and then headed to his office which they equally searched thoroughly making away with two laptops marked Lenovo and DELL as well as the sum of over FCFA 50,000.     The unidentified men gave no reason for taking Njoka Kingsley into custody. They also did not say where he was being taken to. It has now been 21 days since he was “kidnapped” without any crime committed and without even being charged.  With the recent declaration of Samuel Wazizi’s death in the hands of the forces of law in Yaoundé, one is tempted to think that anything can happen to Njoka Kingsley Fomonyuy if nothing is done." And the UN of Guterres is complicit - and colonial, here.

   On April 30 Inner City Press in writing asked Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming questions including about the 14 luxury cars to Biya's cronies - no answer.

  On April 20, Inner City Press asked Dujarric, Guterres and others 21 questions including this: "this morning Inner City Press asked [an NGO often invited into Guterres' UN and which for now gives preference to his UN Censorship Alliance] which said it would be 'highly problematic' if Guterres does not include Cameroon in his CAAC report. Why hasn't he to date? Is he still claiming and taking credit for a ceasefire?"

  Two days, no answer at all. Only this read out by Dujarric from his penthouse apartment: "we acknowledge the commitment of the President of Cameroon to resolve the conflict in the North‑West and South‑West regions through peaceful means." Video on Facebook; YouTube. Guterres is a corrupt censor,

 Now there's widely circulated video  a toddler whose mother was killed in Babanki (Kedjom Ketinguh) in Mezam, in the North West region of Cameroon. Soldiers are responsible, and 10 other civilians have been killed. Meanwhile corrupt Guterres and Catarina Vaz Pinto, the First Lady of Faux Socialism, ran right by Inner City Press loud questions about Cameroon on February 29, into the publicly funded mansion Guterres lives in some of the time. Story here with video. He, and it seems they, are corrupt and complicit.

 Also: one of the witnesses who exposed the Biya government's mass killing at Ngarbuh, Mallam Danjuma has been killed and dumped in Bui by government forces in Kikaikelaki. And from the UN of Guterres? Nothing. This is Guterres' genocide. He has the only press that ask him about it, even from his propaganda speech at NYC's The New School.

This is Guterres' genocide. Watch this site.
