It is Issa Tchiroma, the Minister of Communication and spokesman of the government, who announced this weekend in Yaounde, facing the reporters.

Referring to the anglophone claims and protests that rocked the country in recent days, the government spokesman, warned users of social networks.

To those who undertake to use the communication benefits of social media to misinform public opinion, distort the facts and incite hatred, disorder and violence, the government gives a firm warning , That the state will do everything by its own means and with the assistance of its friendly countries, to track them down, to flush them out, to arrest them and to refer them to our courts, “said Issa Tchiroma Bakary.

The Minister of Communication, also called on young Cameroonians, not to be manipulated by sponsors on social networks, “I would also, on behalf of the government, call our young compatriots, prey to the illusions that sell them the Commanders of this violence, to more vigilance and lucidity, so that they never allow themselves to be drawn into those paths which are those of the perdition and destruction of themselves.

Protesters from the English-speaking part of the country are accused of being manipulated by the Cameroonian diaspora and activists on social networks.

Paul Atanga Nji, the president of the National Security Council has clearly accused the Diaspora of financially supporting the Anglophone claims.
