Former Governor to the South West and North West regions popularly known for his “Neo-Nazis” rule in the South West Province and his hatred for North West immigrants in what he described them as ‘Come No Go’.
According to a family source, Oben Peter Ashu died in a local Hospital in Cameroons economic Capital, Douala Sunday night.
He had been suffering from prolong illness which took him out of Cameroon before he was flown back into the country to continue medication.
The man described as ‘Cameroon Hitler’ will be remembered to have incited hatred between the North West and South West regions with his ‘‘Come No Go’’ which was a coinage for an immigrant who might not return to his town of origin. He referred to them foreigners just because they resided in his region of origin.
He almost went on his knees begging when he was transferred to the North West region in same capacity, he was well treated by the ‘Bamenda man’; he even acquired land and built a house around Nkwen.
Oben Peter Ashu made peace with God and those he oppressed by attending a special service in Bokwaongo, Buea in 2014 where he confessed and asked the people of North West to forgive him.
