Southern Cameroons Independence Is Non-Negotiable-Refugees To Bishops





On 5th June 2018, the Bishop of Mamfe accompanied by Bishop Kleda from Douala ArchDiocese made a stop over in Nigeria Cross River States to visit Southern Cameroons Refugees who have been there since post September 22nd 2017 after they like others went out massively following the calls of the Southern Cameroons Governing Council to call for the release of all those abducted. A move which saw dozens shot to dead and others detained.

The catholic delegation took with them lots of food stuff and medications to visit the refugees, the spokesman of the refugee Mr. Nde Federick while thanking the Catholic Church for their prayers and material support and the fact that they have been speaking and writing on this conflict  did not fail to use the opportunity to send a powerful reminder to La Republique Du Cameroun through Bishop Andrew Nkea who led the delegation to Nigeria. Amongst other issues raised, the refugees through their spokesman maintained in very clear terms that the independence of Southern Cameroons is non negotiable and they can only come back home to a free and prosperous Independent Southern Cameroons. To this, they asked the Bishops present to inform La Republique Du Cameroun.

BaretaNews recalls that this is the second time the Bishop Of Mamfe is making a visit to Nigeria to offer help to his flocks and this must be commended. As the Bishop Of the diocese which has seen most of his flocks in another country as refugees , we of this platform think the Bishop is putting words into actions even though we note that  politically he like others may be limited to cause any change. We can only ask them to continue writing especially addressing the root cause of this conflict  and use all means available to them in pushing the government for negotiations so that they will not have to visit again.

It should be noted that the current crisis began in October 2016 as lawyers and teachers calling for reforms most especially the calls for a two state federation but since then many of its leaders have been abducted, sentenced and most went on exile. The crisis has transformed into a conflict stage with a visible arm struggle between La Republique Du Cameroun Government Forces and what is now known as the Southern Cameroons Ambazonia Restoration Forces. This heightened as Cameroun President Paul Biya had declared war on the people of Southern Cameroons whom he called secessionists and terrorists, a move which made the colonial SDO of Manyu to issue a deportation order thus the massive influx of refugees in Nigeria.

The Government Forces haven been accused by the USA Ambassador to Cameroun Peter Barlerin of targeted killings have continue burning villages including roasting many alive, maiming, with more than 160.000 internal displaced persons living in the forests according to UN figures with more than 30.000 in Nigeria as refugees. No other political parties or figure in the Cameroons have made such a visit to Nigeria to commune and sympathetise with the people, not even the so called Government who claims the country is one and indivisible.

Spokesman letter

BaretaNews must note that the address from the spokesman herein above attached is testimony to the fact that Southern Cameroonians despite the present hardship whether home or abroad are very much determined to see an independent Federal Republic Of Ambazonia.

      mark bareta is capable of anything, he can put up any article he wants on his platform, who proof reads the articles? It’s a propaganda site and even your political defence forces now arm robbers harassing and stealing from villagers can also send the fake typed and signed note you call a letter. @jojo has nothing to do with your propaganda articles.

    Thanks brother @Homeboy and well spoken. If in deed this article is correct, these people are no longer refugees, but activists and their refugees status and benefices should be suspend immediately. This remind me how the USA had to screen refugees coming from the Middle East making sure they not ASIS.
    No one should continue to help refugees who take side.
    I said it from day one that real refugees wouldn’t go to Nigeria why most of the country if peaceful.

    First biya/ahidjo came for the Bassas to kill, mime and discard in mass graves and the Bamilikes did not speak out because they were not Bassas.

    Then biya/ahidjo came for the Bamilikies to kill, mime and discard in mass graves. Many were killed but Ambazonians took all the Bamilikes they could, to protect in Ambaland. However, the Nordist in Cameroon did not speak out because they were not Bamilikes.

    Then biya came for the Nordists and slew a host of them, the Bassas and Bamilikes remained quit and never spoke out because they had been silenced by biya once.

    Today biya is miming, raping, imprisoning and killing Ambazonians but lrc cannot speak out-Because they are cowards and fear for their lives again. Biya is raping, torturing killing and burning citizens in homes in Ambazonia and lrc is very quiet. After biya is done with Ambazonia, he will turn against lrc to eliminate them because it’s what he does in order to stay in power. We thank God that it will finally get to biya himself.

    Ambazonians is and will fight like one person against biya’s criminal lrc regime. May God bless Ambazonia and her Defense Forces for speaking out and standing up against biya’s criminality. Ambazonians will tell their children that when evil in likes of biya visited them, they asked God to give them strength to speak out and to fight back. biya’s evil will never thrive in Ambazonia like it did in lrc!!! It’s Ambazonia or nothing.

      @marcel n sunshine r just full of shit. This so call refuges went to Nigeria from their free will. Ambazozo encourage them to do so, that they can use them to get sympathy for their dream. So no surprise if they say some like that. Let them stay in nigeria. Biafra stood in kmer even after war but never got an independent biafra. So my bro jojo n homeboy don’t worry abt those brain dead who went there
