Anglophone Cameroon: Bishops Decry Drug Abuse in Schools

Catholic Bishops who are part of Cameroon’s Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province have, in a collective message, decried the increasing cases of drug abuse and violence in schools in the Central African nation.

In their Sunday, August 21 statement, members of the Bamenda Provincial Episcopal Conference (BAPEC) urge the government to “intensify sensitization on the damaging effects of indulging in the abuse of drugs and in violence.”

They express concern about “the growing frequency of drug abuse and violence registered in schools all over the Country in the course of the 2021/2022 School Year.”
