The world is in shock following the leaking of gruesome videos and photos from Cameroon.
One gruesome video shared online shows a middle-aged woman being slaughtered in cold blood. Her body is then seen being dragged across the road as she bleeds to death.
Other heart-wrenching photos show bodies which are later burned to char. The photos are gruesome, to say the least. Below is a tweet made by Carol Radull after she viewed the photos and videos.
Clicked on the trend Cameroon and now I can't unsee that video. How can a fellow human being be so inhumanl? It is incomprehensible! 😥

Hundreds of social media users have come out strongly to condemn the atrocities being meted against Cameroonians. Strange enough, Cameroonian media has given the incidents a blind eye.
The UN through its spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric has condemned the killings terming them “serious human rights violations and abuse.”
“On Cameroon, we have seen recent reports of serious human rights violations and abuses in that country,” said Stéphane Dujarric citing the video showing the murder of the middle-aged woman.
In the video, three suspected separatist fighters in Muyuka, South-West region of Cameroon, beat and drag a 35-year-old woman, identified as Confort Tumassang over the ground with her hands tied behind her back. She begs for mercy before she is beheaded, her body left in the street.
The mother-of-four is said to be just the latest casualty in brutal attacks against civilians committed by separatist groups across the North-West and South-West regions of Cameroon – some of them similarly captured on video.
The human rights abuses are said to be carried out by separatists.
Below are some tweets by Kenyans condemning the horrific acts.
When did Africans start killing each other… Cameroon video is disturbing and heartbreaking. God have mercy😢😢😢
