Cameroon: 79 students kidnapped in Bamenda have been released (minister)

Cameroon’s information minister, Issa Bakary Tchiroma said on Wednesday that all seventy nine children who had been kidnapped in the English Speaking Northwest region, had been released. “All 79 students were released,” Tchiroma told AFP. He did not initially specify under what conditions the release was obtained. A principal and one of the teachers of PSS Nkwen school were however still detained by the kidnappers, according to a priest who was conducting negotiations. Samuel Fonki, a minister of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, also said the released children were actually seventy eight, clarifying that the earlier figure of 79 included a teacher. “Praise God seventy eight children and the driver have been released. The principal and one teacher are still with the kidnappers. Let us keep praying,” Fonki said.
