    President Biya Decrees Two Days Of National Mourning For Soldiers Who Drowned  Aboard The BIR Logistics Vessel 'Mundemba' That Was En Route To Bakassi


    The Head of State President Paul Biya has signed a Decree, declaring today Friday July 28, and tomorrow Saturday July 29, 2017 National Mourning Days, in honour of the memory of the 34 Soldiers who went missing on Sunday July 16 2017, at the Debuncha Coast, when their vessel 'Mundemba' succumbed to the strong waves of an unannounced wild storm, and sank into the depths of the waters.

    According to the decree, all flags in and around the national territory MUST fly at half mast.

    'Mundemba' was sailing to Bakassi to supply logistics to soldiers on the disputed Bakassi area, and had on-board 37 civilians and elements of the Rapid Intervention Battalion, some military trucks and other provisions. 34 out of the 37 on board disappeared into the belly of the Debuncha coastal sea, while three survived the storm.
