Widikum Parish lies in Widikum and Batibo sub divisions in the Momo Division of the North West Region of Cameroon. The population of Widikum sub division is about 30,000 people and it is inhabited largely by the peoples of Ambelle, Menka, Bussam and Widikum clan.
Geographically, the Widikum subdivision is dominated by palm trees. It also has hard wood timber and some patches of wooded savanna especially in the Menka area. The land surface is hilly with difficult terrain and covers a surface area of 339.88 sq km. Because of the hilly terrain, travel is extremely difficult and challenging.
This has caused many of its people, mostly peasant farmers, to migrate to other parts of the country, especially to the South West Region. Those who haven’t migrated are engaged in subsistence farming activities. These include the production of palm oil, coco-yams and plantains using very rudimentary traditional methods. Petite trading sustains a few families.
