Reps. Bass Statement on Cameroonian Kidnapping
“Kidnapping should always be condemned, especially if it involves more than 70 children.
“Last night, armed separatists kidnapped 79 students and three staff from a Presbyterian boarding school in Cameroon’s Northwest anglophone region. This is the most recent example of how citizens, especially children, are increasingly the ones who suffer the most from terrorist activity.
“In the wake of President Biya’s re-election to serve a seventh term, we are at a critical moment for him to work towards a nonviolent solution to the conflict in the anglophone region.”
