President Paul Biya should thoroughly investigate the recent killing of journalist Anye Nde Nsoh, hold the killers accountable and provide a safe atmosphere for free speech and the practice of journalism in Cameroon

The Norbert Zongo Cell for Investigative Journalism in West Africa (CENOZO) has condemned the killings of journalists in Cameroon and called on the country’s President, Paul Biya to urgently halt the trend.

Just a few days back, one of the country’s top journalists, Anye Nde Nsoh, was murdered by unknown gunmen near a bar in the Northwest Region’s capital of Bamenda.

The killing has also been condemned by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) in a statement released in New York on May 8, 2023.

 Before his murder, Mr. Nsoh was the regional manager of the Advocate Newspaper, one of the most influential media outfits in the country.

But in a statement released on Monday in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, CENOZO President David Dembele called the murder of Mr. Nsoh “a heinous crime” and urged Mr. Biya to bring the perpetrators to justice.

He said the organisation is shocked to learn of the barbaric murder of the famous journalist and also condemned the country’s continuing reign of terror.
