FON CHAFFAH XI PICTURED ARRIVING FOR THE INSTALLATION OF NEW BABESSI DIVISIONAL OFFICER

Prolonged chieftaincy crisis in Bangolan have today been discontinued by the court of first instance in Ndop. According to the court, both parties requested for the problem to be discontinued and suspended. Both parties will now have to sit down and chat a way forward.
It should be recalled that chieftaincy crisis started in Bangolan when some villagers allegedly dethroned their traditional ruler, Fon Chaffah XI mid February 2016 and enthroned another Fon. This, administratively was not accepted and it went against the will of the alleged perpetrators.
Things came to a head when an administrative team to broker peace in the village was intercepted and properties looted. Gun shots were reportedly exchanged on March 19 “when angry villagers besieged the palace demanding the Fon to leave”. Eye witnesses recounted that five people sustained bullet wounds with no death reported.
Fon. Chaffah XI was accused by his villagers for “embracing western religion and giving his life to Christ”. They also complained of him reportedly setting on fire some artifacts, antiquities amongst others, which they said were the symbol of Bangolan tradition.
The angry locals staged a sit in protest at the North West Governor’s office February 24, 2016 and were instead told to return to the SDO for Ngoketunjia. The angry locals also demanded an end to arrests and torture form soldiers deployed to the area.
The English man says all is well that ends well, Bangolan people now have to solve their problems as the court has discontinued the case advising both parties to meet the administration.
The court ruling met jubilating villagers who started shouting and dancing right in front of the court.

People running away from the terrorism of the military and Chafah’ s camp,while he is peacefully enjoying his life and his family.What will become of Bangolan after this crisis? Will this ever have an end? There is personal conflict resolution now by burning enemies’ houses in pretext of chieftaincy crisis

  2. Chafah Isaac Mbunka should leave Bangolan alone. Am a native of Bangolan making it to the hearing of everybody that chafah is a devil in human form and Bangolan will only calm peacefully after chafah has been expelled. I wander if Cameroon Government is watching?
