Cameroon’s National Assembly president warns of security threat, calling for vigilance

Cameroon and Chad

Cavaye Yeguie Djibril, the president of Cameroon’s National Assembly, on Wednesday called for increased vigilance against security threats in the country.

“In Cameroon, the security threat remains very high so far. Fortunately, the defense and security forces are keeping an eye on things,” Cavaye said during a closing plenary of the June session of the National Assembly.

He said the population needs to be on the alert and collaborate with troops to fight terrorist threats.

“I would like to salute the increasingly growing involvement in the fight of the said populations, particularly through the vigilance committees. Together we must block the way to all these evil hordes,” Cavaye said and urged lawmakers to get the population fully involved in securing the country and “to flush out terrorists, rebels and other highway robbers.”

The call came five days after an improvised explosive device exploded in a popular market in Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon, injuring four people.

The government has intensified security, deploying additional troops in major cities including Yaounde and the commercial hub of Douala, according to security reports. Enditem
