Health Personnel weep as Separatist fighters kill Nurse, injure Doctor in Bamenda

Shey Janet Killed Nurse

Workers of the CBC health services have been taken aback after the brutal killing of a Nurse, Shey Janet returning from community service in Ashong, Batibo subdivision and Bali, a village located 19km from Bamenda.

Several persons have been caught in the current socio-political crisis in the North West and South West Regions. Transport fares have doubled, money making ventures are almost in existent making access to medical care difficult.

Shey Janet was killed and a medical Doctor wounded as the 16-man team came under bullet attacks in Mile 90 Nsongwa.

Bullets were rained on their vehicle, making it difficult to save the life of the health worker who before her demise served at the Women's Health program of the CBC.

The news has been described as totally unacceptable by several health workers working at the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health services and other health services in Bamenda. 

This adds to a good number of Health care providers who have died on the line of duty with the most conspicuous, a health worker who was killed in Batibo then working with Doctors without borders. The only crime of these health care workers is  providing health care to patients who have difficulty in accessing hospitals.

In a brief service, Saturday 26th February 2022, the CBC Health authorities and workers shattered by shock and disbelief, looked up to heaven for intervention and hope as powerless mortals serving humanity and the Creator in an environment where even healthcare has become a crime.
