A commission of inquiry was created to investigate the Ngarbuh Massacre. This came after serious pressures on the government by the international community.

”According to reports that journalducameroun had difficulty confirming, seven non commissioned members and two colonels interested the investigators”, reports journalducameroun.
The first part of the investigation reveals there was indeed a clash in that area between the separatist fighters and the army.
The investigation also reveals that only a group of unauthorized soldiers with the help of armed Mbororos later decided to carry a secret punitive operation against a village.
This was simply because the unauthorized group of soldiers suspected the villagers for helping the separatists against the sildiers.
This was done without the knowledge of command.
Mbororo fighters who are said to have participated in the operation are on the run.
The soldiers of the massacre, together with two senior officers have been arrested and transferred to Yaounde.
On February 14, 2020, Ngarbuh, a small village in the North West region of Cameroon was attacked. The attack resulted to the death of 22, including 14 children according to the United Nations.
Several international and local human rights organizations accused the army for the massacre.
The government denied every accusations and allegations, but said it was a result of an explosion of a container of fuel in the course of the fight between soldiers and armed separatists.
In a recent report by the Human Right Watch, the government soldiers are responsible for killing 21 persons including 13 children and a pregnant woman.
In response, the government created a Commission of inquiry on February 28, to shed lights on the exact happenings in Ngarbuh on February 14.
