Fierce Battle in Bui between Ambazonia and Cameroun Forces leave Casualties on Both Sides
In the last three days before Tuesday 10th September, fierce fighting in Bui County between the Restoration Forces unit, the ADF and the Cameroun military has left four ADF fighters and at least six Cameroun soldiers dead in back-to-back battles, BaretaNews has learned. Information on any other wounded Cameroun soldiers is still scanty at this time, ABNTv reports
BaretaNews is told the ADF has paid honor to the fallen heroes of the Ambazonian liberation struggle, and remains strong and high spirited in the County. One of its commander there has affirmed: “this is the price of freedom, and under no circumstance shall we terminate this cause. We fight not just for ourselves, but for the happiness of generations to come. Cameroon will know everyday that Ambazonians are valiant soldiers.”
As Paul Biya spoke to his country yesterday, there is credible information from intelligent sources that the Cameroun military is planning an upscale attack in Alabukam, Bamenda. For the past two months, Cameroon soldiers have attempted multiple times to set up a camp in this area in an attempt to dislodge what it believes is a strategic stronghold of the ADF, but have met fierce opposition from the ADF in each instance. Over three weeks ago, the Cameroon military brought in a “marabu” to “fortify” the spot they intend to establish a camp. While “marabu” was engaged in his incantations and libation pouring, the ADF unleashed bullets into the spot killing three Cameroon soldiers and forcing the “spiritual man” to flee for his live.
Cameroun has used military men in civilian attire to gather intelligence in the area, and an attack in Alabukam can occur at anytime. The leader of the ADF, Benedict Kuah, has said even in the face of this pending attack, the priority of his forces is the protection of civilians, especially women and children. He opted not to speak on any counter attack plans.
Ambazonians of all works of life are called upon to intensify financial contributions to fighters on the ground. As we near October 1, 2019, a date that marks 58 years since the independence of Southern Ambazonia (the erstwhile Southern Cameroons under British administration), our people must not relent their efforts in supporting the needs of our brave fighters who are fighting and giving their lives to protect the Ambazonia homeland. We must never forget that everyday they step out into battle may be their last day in Ambazonia. Our financial contributions cannot be commensurate to the risk they are bearing and their sacrifices.
