With the escalation of the Anglophone crisis, traditional rulers in the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon, have continually been targeted by separatist fighters for either supporting a government initiative, or refusing to side with separatists’ agenda, or voting.
Also, traditional rulers seen by the government as weighing more on the separatists’ side of the divide, have been targeted and harassed by government forces. As a result, some have fled their palaces too, for fear of further harassment or prosecution.
