Ambazonia President, 9 Others Arrested In Nigeria, BaretaNews Condemns

Published

The Interim President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe Julius, has been arrested. He was gaffed alongside eight members of the Interim Government at the Nera Hotel, Abuja Nigeria, Friday January 5 2018.

Sources close to the Abuja Central police district, where the leaders have been detained, say the Nigerian secret service carried out the arrest. A closed source says the arrest is linked to a recent detention of over 39 Ambazonia forces, training in Taraba, South of Nigeria by Nigerian security forces.

The arrested include;

  1.  Sisiku Ayuk Julius, Interim President of Federal Republic of Ambazonia,

2. Dr. Nfor Ngala Nfor, Chairman of the Southern Cameroons National Council (SCNC)

3. Dr. Fidelis Nde Che,                  4. Dr. Henry Kimeng                 5. Prof. Awasum            6. Dr. Cornelius Kwanga

7. Mr. Tassang Wilfred       8. Barrister Eyambe Elias          9. Dr. Ojong Okongho and    10. Barrister Nalowa Bih

 

Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and his collaborators had gathered to discuss the humanitarian concerns of Ambazonian refugees streaming in from Manyu County unto neighbouring Nigeria. It aimed at mobilising relief support for accommodation, medical, and feeding, in anticipation of the approaching rainy season. The venue of the meeting was kept at top secret.

It is unclear if the Yaounde regime influenced the arrests. However, government officials from La Republique du Cameroun (LRC), and Nigeria have recently been holding high level talks on how to quell the operation of the Interim Government in Nigeria.

Speaking on behalf of the interim government, the Secretary for Communication and IT, Chris Anu, says Ambazonians have been a victim of terror perpetrated by the government of LRC. He calls on the Nigeria authorities to address the issue and ensure that LRC does not come anywhere in contact with the arrested.

“Southern Cameroonians continue to be victims of extra judicial killings orchestrated by President Paul Biya and his henchmen. President Paul Biya and his henchmen must know Southern Cameroonians will continue their rights to self-determination and will hold Paul Biya into account on all the killings of Southern Cameroonians. We call on the Nigeria government to address the issue immediately and ensure that the Cameroun government does not do any harm to them. We also call on the Nigerian government to guarantee the security of the more than 20,000 Southern Cameroonian refugees in various camps in Nigeria,” Chris Anu indicated.

Southern Cameroons continue to be under siege following heavy military deployment by colonial forces of LRC. Heavy military bombardment, maiming, killings, arrests, and expulsion, are being carried out on a daily basis in Manyu, Meme and Ndian Counties.

The military crack down on unarmed civilians have caused over 40,000 Southern Cameroonians flee from their homes and seek refuge in neighbouring Nigeria.

The international Community has made repeated calls for the government of LRC, to engage the government of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, into a frank and inclusive dialogue. Yet, no move has been carryout in that regard.

LRC government instead sought to military crack down and forceful subjection of Southern Cameroonians to accept the status quo.

BaretaNews condemn in strongest term, the arrest of the Ambazonian leaders in Nigeria. We call for the immediate release of President Ayuk Tabe and his collaborators. We also call on the international community to initiate dialogue between Cameroun and Southern Cameroons.

    “The venue of the meeting was kept at top secret”

    you are very naive – In that same governing council LRC i am sure has a spy who gave away the meeting place ,or cellphone interception , or man tracking .

    Anyway this was bound to happen .

    Cameroon refused to help the seccesionists during the biafra war – Nigeria knows that and it was always going to be difficult for Nigeria to help anyone seeking secession anywhere else let alone from cameroon who helped them to keep their NIGERIA not to break into pieces ,starting with the Biafra .

    But the only solution to this problem is to stop the war and go for dialog .

    Boh Herbert wrote an article here were he was already explaining why the military option was a bad one .

      If you are referring to SC, the word is separation and not secession. Biya doesn’t want dialogue. If they don’t wanna help then they have to deal with thousands of refugees.

    Everything is fine our president and the others are right now questioned by Nigerian authorities in Abuja. They haven’t commited any crime. So just wait and stay calm. The Nigerian government must understand that there is only with Sisiku and the IG a solution of that crisis. We have the right of selfdetermination. Nobody can take that from us. Don’t be distracted by french Cameroun trolls. Stay united and focused. Our goal is Buea and we get it. Long live Ambazonia.

    These arrests take the struggle to a new and conclusive stage. I will tell you what you will not believe or like to hear. You will even abuse me, but the truth must prevail, no matter how long it may take. On Friday 05/01/2018 the African Multitask Force of the African Union Force was announced to be installed in Douala on a total land area of 25 hectares in two locations near the Airport and Seaport. This is not for nothing. The African Union and the UN have taken this struggle that goes beyond Ambazonia or Southern Cameroon or West Cameroon to its ultimate solution. The independence of British Cameroon has now finally and openly been engaged by AU/UN. Nothing will happen to the Interim Government of HE Sisikou Ayuk Tabe Julius. These arrests are just to pave the way for a much broader and inclusive independence that will bring the 16 Local Government Areas in North Nigeria. Nothing will happen to the IG. If LRC actually did it by their will and power, they would have been making much noise about it. The AU/UN have allowed it for the purpose explained. I know most of you will castigate me, but that’s the truth. Just watch and see how things will unfold from now hence. I won’t give any details.

    Why would law abiding people seeking Referendum of Independence for Southern Cameroon be arrested, in the first place?

    Anyway, holding South Cameroon freedom movement meetings in nigeria is/was a blunder, because the buhari thugs will expose the participants and hand them over to Biya. Something like that happened during the time of Ahidjou, when he handed some dissenting nigerians back to Prime Minister Tafawa Balewa, and he had them executed.

    You can still hold it in nigeria (Eastern Nigeria), but you have to have 2 venues and keep the real venue only known to about 2 people. Then, from the different hotels where the participants are lodged, transport the participants individually to the actual venue. In that way, the spies will never know and divulge the true venue to Biya and his nigerian collaborators from northern nigeria.

    Owerri and Port Harcourt are the best places to hold such freedom movement meetings, because these 2 Eastern nigerian cities have more than 100 hotels. Therefore, it will be very difficult to know where the Southern Cameroonians are lodged. Igbo people will NEVER cooperate with nigerian government to have these lawful Referendum seeking Cameroonians arrested.

    These Cameroonians should also schedule fake meetings and dates and stake out the venue to see who shows p. That way, they can know if their privacy has been compromised. So many ways to thwart Biya and his thugs.

    Good luck guys, but keep it civil, to deny Biya the excuse that he is fighting against armed insurrection.

    Many of us need to wake up and mature, this thing we are in is not a baby walk. They have sacrifice their lives and that of their family. We will never ever give up on them just as we never did to our love ones in the concentration camps of LRC.

    Nigerian is a smart nation, I can count on them blindly than count on LRC or the Europeans.

    Arrest all of them and see if our movement, our struggle, our determination, our restoration, … will be arrested too.

    New leader are already on the way, Mark Bara and Tanku Ivo show us how to do that.

    Everything continues as if nothing happen, we raise never to fall, only Buea stops us.

Stubborn Ekema Once Again Threatens Buea Business Community, Provokes Another Instability

Published

on

 

 

 

 

The stubborn Mayor of Buea Municipality has issued another communique threatening the Buea business community that their business places shall be sealed if they listen to any Ghost town calls from those he termed “certain individuals”. This call reminds the people of his boastful supervision of Ghost towns in Buea wherein he was no where to be found leading to heavy casualties on the sides of La Republique Du Cameroun military. This call is coming at a time ghost town fever has gripped the entire Southern Cameroons-Ambazonia. Is Ekema and Cameroun military trying to set a trap for Southern Cameroons Restoration Forces to visit Buea on Monday again? Is it that he hates when Denizens in Buea are without gun shots? The future is pregnant.

Ekema’s Letter

It should be recalled that just two weeks ago Patrick Ekema caused the death of 6 policemen in Buea Municipality when he ran his mouth over many TV stations, print media insinuating that Ghost towns in his municipality must come to a halt. As a result, Southern Cameroons Restoration Forces were out visiting Buea to make sure no one listens to the Mayor. As a result of this provocation, a gun battle between Restoration forces and La Republique Du Cameroun military led to the death of 6 police officers. Popular opinions hold that like other areas, should the mayor not provoked the restoration forces with his claims, ghost towns should have been observed with all serenity. Political commentators now think that Mayor Ekema is deliberately causing instability in Buea.

Worthy of note is that Ghost towns have been running for almost two years now. It’s the people’s civil disobedience day wherein all shops, businesses and transports remain shut down across the entire Southern Cameroons. Will the people of Buea listen to Mayor Ekema this time around? Monday 23rd July shall speak for itself. As for this platform, we continue to call on every Southern Cameroonians to observe this day.

The Murder of Felix Ngang: The Thieves Spoke French

 

Southern Cameroonians got up this morning today July, 18 2018 very shocked of the passing away of Felix Ngang, proprietor Of Miss Bright Hotel Buea. He passed on last night after he was visited and attacked by thieves.

Eyewitness reports have that Mr. Felix Ngang, proprietor of Miss Bright Hotel was never shot. He was attacked by thieves who spoke entirely in French. They hit him on the neck, signs show. An attempt to jump through a back widow on the balcony of the first floor, he poorly fell and injured his head. Denizens rushed him to the hospital where he gave up the ghost as a result of internal bleeding.

Though BaretaNews cannot still independently verify this as this is still a developing story, however, this is what most Denizens in Bomaka, a local government area in Fako County are saying according to multiple reports.

It should be noted that Mr. Felix who is originally from Mandenkwe in the Northern zone is a bonafide Soppo boy married to a queen from the Manyu County who is presently in the United States due birth of their new baby. Mr. Felix had won the contract to build Kumba University and was supposed to be flying to the states in few days time to meet his wife and family.

The thieves who had a mission had cut his life short. There is more to this that meets the eyes. We continue to ask God to receive his soul and give his killers no rest until justice is done.

Malian Government, Amnesty Int’l Isolate LRC Over Military Extrajudicial Killings

Published

on

Extrajudicial killings

The Malian Government has issued a press release debunking attribution of an arbitrary execution attributed to its army, Forces Armées Maliennes, (FAMAs) portrayed in a video that has gone viral online.
The Statement debunking the video was issued on Saturday July 12, following a massive outrage from human rights organisations operating in the country and the international community. The video depicts hooded women with children on their backs being executed by members of a regular military force.

The action which was described as horrendous is attributed to the military of La Republique du Cameroun (LRC) fighting Boko Haram in the Far North. LRC’s Communication Minister and Government Spokesman, Issa Tchiroma Bakary had refuted allegations, attributing it to the Sahelian country.
Reacting to the gruesome killings, Malian authorities point out that it “is the same footage which has sparked a heated debate in a Central African country attributing these deeds to Mali’s Armed Forces,” while stating that it is a ploy to soil the image of their nation and destabilise internal activities within their territory.

LRC Carried-out the Extrajudicial Killings Amnesty Int’l

Meantime, the human rights non-governmental organisation, Amnesty International, AI, has said credible evidence shows that the LRC military personnel is responsible for the shocking extrajudicial executions caught on video in the Far North
Region.
An investigation by their experts, according to them, gathered credible evidence that it was LRC soldiers in the video carrying out the horrific extrajudicial execution of two women and two young children.
Extensive analysis of the weapons, dialogue and uniforms that feature on the video, according to AI, paired with digital verification techniques and testimonies taken from the ground, all strongly suggest that the perpetrators of the executions are LRC soldiers.
“The Camerounian authorities’ initial claim that this shocking video is fake simply doesn’t stand up for scrutiny. We can provide credible evidence to the contrary. Given the gravity of these horrific acts-the cold-blooded and calculated slaughter of women and young children – these hasty and dismissive denials cast serious doubt
over whether any investigation will be genuine,”said Samira Daoud, Deputy Director of AI, West African Office.
The video, according to AI, shows the soldiers using Galil and Kalashnikov-style
rifles.
“While AK-type weapons are common, the Galil, the weapon specifically used in the execution, is comparatively rare and distinctive. The Small Arms Survey lists the Galil as only ‘occasional’ in sub-Saharan Africa among Governments, and as unknown among State actors. The only force in the area carrying Galils are a small subset of the Cameroon Army,” the report stated.
The master corporal’s uniform, to AI, is a tiger stripe pattern that is standard among LRC regular army.
“The other soldiers are wearing black shirts and green-and-black woodland pants. While the Ministry of Communication claims that the mixed and causal nature of the uniforms indicates a lack of authenticity. AI investigators have found the opposite. Mixed and partial uniforms are common among personnel, especially in remote areas where this incident took place. Soldiers in the Far North Region wearing casual flip-flops and T-shirts as
well as mix of tiger stripe print and woodland print can be clearly seen in the videos,” AI’s report explained.
Before AI’s report, the Minister of Communication, Tchiroma, had organised a press conference debunking the
video as fake.
“In this vein of overt conspiracy, the video that is currently going around is nothing but an unfortunate attempt to
distort actual facts and intoxicate the public. Its sincerity can be easily questioned, with regard to the factual elements contained in this horrible trick play, with voices coarsely affixed to visual sequences,” he said.
The video, according to Tchiroma, is another instance of gross misinformation whereby the alleged facts have nothing to do with the work of the Defense and Security Forces within the framework of the missions entrusted to them. AI, however, at the end of its report, said it is imperative that a proper impartial investigation is undertaken and those responsible for these abhorrent acts are brought to justice.

It should be noted that, such extrajudicial killings have become some sort of normalcy in Ambazonia, as LRC military maim, kill, and burn people’s property almost on daily basis. Unfortunately, the world continue to remain mute, amidst the huge atrocities LRC continue to commit in Ambazonia. Pundits hope that with this new evidence of LRC soldiers caught on camera carrying out such barbaric acts, the international community will input financial and economic sanction on LRC.
