Ambazonia Interim Government (IG) Delegation Visits Refugees, as Former Consortium Leader Listens to Horrifying Stories of genocide victims in Hospital
As the number of Southern Cameroons Refugees continues to grow in neighboring Nigeria, the Interim Government of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia is not relenting in its efforts to ensure that the citizens fleeing colonial brutality receive basic relief materials to take care of their basic needs. A delegation of the IG, headed by SCNC Chair Dr. Nfor Ngala Nfor and Head of Department for Home Affairs of the defunct Governing Council, Barrister Blais Berrinyuy Eq have just made an urgent relief trip to the refugee camp in the Northern Nigerian state of Taraba. The camp is hosting Southern Cameroonians fleeing torture, rape, arbitrary arrest, mayhem and general genocide, from the colonial forces of LRC stationed in the Northern Zone of Ambazonia. Meanwhile in Southern Cameroons, Former Consortium President Barrister Balla visits Genocide victims as he listens to their horrific stories, one of whom whose arm was amputated.
Taraba and Benue States of Nigeria are neighbouring states to the Donga-Mantung and Menchum Counties of Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia. It should also be noted that these set of refugees currently being visited by the IG delegation are different from the ones presently in the Cross River State of Nigeria, who are mostly Ambazonians resident in Manyu County, in the Southern Zone. This emergency relief visit comes in the wake of the death of two new born babies in the camps who died as a result of the lack of prenatal care. It is also reported that, as a result of continuous colonial military assault, many Southern Cameroonians in most parts of Manyu County, are still taking refuge in farm shelters and bushes, as they have not been able to make their way into Nigeria for safety.

The unwarranted harassments and maiming of Ambazonians in the homeland by LRC forces has continued unabated. In fact, the situation is even getting worst has the colonial government in Yaoundé has withdrawn troops combating Boko Haram in the North of LRC and deployed them to fight Ambazonian citizens.
In the main time, the former President of the outlawed Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium (CACSC), President of Fako Lawyers Association (FAKLA and Human Rights Activist, Barrister Nkongho Felix Agbor-Balla has continued meeting Southern Cameroons victims of LRC genocidal activities, on their sick beds and listening to their horrifying stories. In one of such visits recently to a hospital in the Northern zone, a male victim who will never have the luxury of having two arms explained to the human rights lawyer his family’s ordeal in the hands of colonial troops.
According to the victim, the occupation forces invaded his compound in Ndop, where he and four of his male relatives were hiding inside the house. The soldiers threw 4 teargas canisters to force them out and when they could not resist the heat and acidity of the gas, they jumped out of the house. He was then severely brutalized by the soldiers and shot on the arm. He is now left with one arm after medics amputated the bullet ridden arm.

BaretaNews, is therefore by this challenging all Southern Cameroonians reading us to continue to make genuine sacrifices, materially and financially to support the innocent affected people, either as Refugees, prisoners of conscience in LRC Gulags or victims of genocidal activities. As Southern Cameroons/Ambazonians, we are into this revolution together and must work collectively and collaboratively to ensure that the people are comforted and know that we all care. Above all, we must as citizens of Ambaland and revolutionary agents know that we are all suspected or already labelled terrorists in the eyes of the colonial regime. It is thus our responsibility to work together and completely free the homeland in limited time to enable our people return to their homes and enjoy a new Country of their dreams.
