Ambazonia Jailed leader launches hunger strike

 

 

Yaoundé (AFP) – The jailed head of Cameroon’s anglophone separatists, Julius Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, has launched a hunger strike to protest the “disappearance” of co-detainees following prison riots, one of his lawyers said Thursday.

Ayuk Tabe, self-proclaimed president of “Ambazonia”, the breakaway state the separatists want to create in the central African country, stopped eating as of midnight Tuesday along with nine of his supporters, lawyer Joseph Fru told AFP.

In a letter to Cameroon Justice Minister Laurent Esso whose authenticity was verified by AFP, Ayuk Tabe said the unlimited hunger strike was in protest at the disappearance of “our compatriots” from the two prisons.

Hundreds of inmates mutinied at an overcrowded central prison in the capital Yaounde on July 22, then the next day at a prison in Buea, the capital of one of Cameroon’s two minority anglophone regions.

The rioters, many of them government opponents or supporters of the English-speaking separatist movement, filmed their protest and posted elements to Facebook.

The government announced 177 arrests including of anglophone separatists.

But it denied rumours that an anglophone leader Mancho Bibixy had been tortured and killed at the hands of the authorities.

    Sumelong Ekane, this is insipid stale news. I thought Sisiku would have provided you, SLAVE MASTER BARETA’S LAPDOG, with a copy of such a document to post on this platform. Isn’t it sad that you have to parasitically depend on AP news agency? Pseudo journalist!

    SISIKU AND HIS FELLOW TERRORISTS SHOULD CONTINUE THEIR HUNGER STRIKE FOR MANY MONTHS. IT WILL SAVE THE PRISON SYSTEM SOME MONEY AND HELP THEY THEMSELVES TOO TO LOSE WEIGHT. THEY ARE OVERWEIGHT BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN EATING AD-LIB (as much and as often as desired). FREE FOOD (many SQUARE MEALS a day)!!!

    OBVIOUSLY, PIZZABOY IS NOT HAPPY WITH ERIC TATAW’S “ROAD TO DAMASCUS EXPERIENCE AND CONVERSION” FOLLOWING THE LAYING OF HANDS BY THE ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP OF MAMFE. HE NOW CALLS HIMSELF THE ROCK (JESUS?).

    Jon you are a slave without as master! Your prison has no walls. No one can contract your useless spy services! No one will pay you and no one will love you. After shouting and insulting like a mad dog, get a rope, make a tie for your ugly neck and hang! Go to hell and table your request at the devils feet!

    When you realize you are only playing a finite game in an infinite and always changing universe, that time you will save your energy for your lost generations!
