      NW Youths have decried the malicious activities of the terrorist group Boko Haram in the northern part of the country, and have called on their peers to stay away from the sect.  This was evident during 11 February March pass at the Bamenda ceremonial Ground,  as youths carried placards denouncing the group.

Some of the placards read “we say no to Boko Haram” and  “we need peace and security” they also sang songs calling for unity, peace and security in Cameroon. Peace plants popular known as “Nkeng” were used by some of the youths as a significance of the peace craved for by the youths nationwide.
