Governor Adolphe Lele gifting ex-combatants at DDR Center 


The morales of ex-fighters at the North West Regional Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration Centre, DDR have been low for weeks now following the death of Wamely Sanda Justice and Tabeh Ekwebu.

The death of these two sons from Ako subdivision in Donga Mantung Division under unclear circumstances have given rise to questions as to the future of the Ex-combatants.




Speaking at a visit to the Centre by North West Governor, the Senior Prefect lamented what had befallen their friends on that faithful Sunday 26th September 2021.

"We're in still doubts what future holds for us. It is as if the government had forgotten about us."

On hand to respond to their grievances, North West Governor Adolphe Lele LAfrique assured them that Investigations have been opened to determine the exact cause of their deaths.

To further pacify the Ex-combatants, the Mayor of Bamenda II Council, Chenwi Peter, handed the sum of 200,000 Frs while promising an immediate employment to five of the ex-fighters.

Of the ex-fighters currently at the Centre, 9 are going to sit the GCE O and A levels in 2022. Their registration the Mayor says will be paid by the council to the tube of 200,000 Frs.




The Centre has had 5 births since its creation in 2018 with more and more young persons dropping their arms to enroll there.

The Regional Director of the Centre, Kum Henry Ichu has lauded the visit of the Governor and his entourage at this moment of grief, hoping that such circumstances do not befall the Centre again.

He also pleaded with the municipal authorities to try as much as possible to make the access road the Centre passable.
