UNHRC Commissoner Regrets For Not Investigating War Crimes In Ambazonia, Blames La Republique






The UN Human Rights Commission in a brief statement released to the Human Rights Council acknowledges what it called the ”long-standing” structural discrimination by the colonial government of La Republique in the many years Yaounde has entrenched its tentacles all over the Southern Cameroons.

Continuous clashes over the last months between LRC’s security forces and pro-independence fighters have seen a cycle of violence. The rights commission also mentioned in the statement how the arrest of the 47 members of the Interim government in Nigeria two months ago and their subsequent extradition to La Republique has emboldened pro-independence fighters in the Northern and Southern zones of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.

The statement also pinpoint allegations of what it called ”summary executions” of civilians as reports of La Republique security forces carrying out extrajudicial killings has picked steam. Such barbaric acts and atrocious deeds of elite soldiers which it notes for ”generating widespread resentment” in local communities.

While the UN Human Rights Commission condemned the heavy-handedness of the regime’s clampdown, the High Commission took some blame for not being able to secure access in order to verify these allegations. The High Commissioner in a statement wrote “ I regret that my office has not been given access to verify these allegations” . Among some of the reasons given for the delay were the complex bureaucratic challenges faced by UN authorities, their commitment in the newly displaced people from the Central African Republic and Boko Haram attacks in recent weeks.

The High Commissioner urged the government of La Republique to take strides in order to ”de-escalate the conflict” and requested what it called ”unimpeded access” for monitors from the Human Rights Council on a fact-finding mission so that accurate information on the ground situation, so as to ascertain the way forward for constructive engagement on the issue.

    While the fact still remains that we Ambazonians are the once to do the heavy lifting, this does not preclude the fact that we live in an inter-dependent World. At the end of the day, whether we like it or not, we will still have to deal with the United Nations. Consequently, we cannot afford to start acting like an elephant in a corn field. Yes, the suffering of our people at the hands of these Beti criminals is enough to make someone to become irrational in their words and deeds. But thankfully enough, we are fortunate that our parents with a meager source of income, sacrificed everything to give us a decent education. Let us put that education to work so as to free our people from the fangs of these greedy french slaves of LRC.
    Moreover, we are a people with a rich culture and profanity has never been part of our culture. Like President Sisiku Ayuk always said, ” Let us use the argument of reason”.

      Mukong,this is not time to sugar coat the truth. I have no respect for the corrupt UN. I guess Biya is just helping the UN’s depopulation project. I would prefer a life of isolation with freedom to a life of inter-dependence with no freedom.

    People what is here to investigate? On one side LRC is killing people without any regards and on another side Ambazoni is kidnapping, killing and preventing students from going to school. Both sides are all criminals. By the way the 47 ambazonia leaders are all criminals and they should face justice.

      Many people died fighting for you to have this freedom of speech, so feel free to use it bro.
      Cameroon is a country of laws and your so called Ayuk by calling for killing, kidnapping and civil disobedience declared war to the country, therefore is a criminal and he will face justice. Take care.

    You are 50% right because Ambazozo are kidnaping and killing, then hide in the forrest.
    No need to insult, but we know frustration make Ambazozo to behave like this, all you know is to insult and intimidate the population of the NW and SW.

    The IG and the other groups shall in collaboration with the local population create an archive of places of mass executions and mass graves. We need a good documentation of the crimes of LRC against the population of the Southern Cameroons.

    The Mass grave supposed to be in your little brain.
    Your Propaganda will fail forever.
    You criminal called Ambazozo are
    – Kidnaping people
    – Preventing kids to go to school
    – Killing people
    – Intimidate the population.

    But don’t worry, your ugly plan will fail.

    The UNHRC’s statement is a code word to said that you all can forget about war crimes. Show me a country or group of peoples on this earth that successfully prove a war crimes while having their own arms groups?
    Name calling such as LRC agent don’t bother me at all. Today Crist Anu is someone who need to be taking out just for saying that your arms groups are the one causing the destruction of our villages. Don’t take it from me, follow the conversation on Facebook.
