Youth Activist Arrested With Ambazonia Passport



The Post Newspaper is reporting that Police in Kumba, Southwest Region, arrested an activist of the Sothern Cameroons National Council, SCNC, in possession of a Southern Cameroons Passport. Simon Nfor Ngwa, was fished out of a public transport bus at the Mabonji police checkpoint on the Kumba-Buea Road. This occurred on Thursday, September 29,

He was travelling to Douala for a personal business venture when the security elements spotted him.His National Identity card, mobile phone and other belongings were confiscated. Ngwa was later released on Monday, October 3- writes the Post.

He is said to have been freed on the orders of the police hierarchy unconditionally. While in detention, Ngwa is said to have benefitted from the sympathy of a police officer. The officer is said to have given him his mobile phone to inform relatives of his arrest. The Post was unable to confirm if the Southern Cameroons Passport was retained at the police station or given back to Ngwa at the time of his release.

Ngwa’s arrest came in the wake of security measures Government put in place to circumvent any secessionist activities on October 1. Within the ranks of the Southern Cameroon National Council, Ngwa is said to occupy the position of National Youth Officer. In Kumba, security measures kept public manifestations at bay. Known activists who had promised mayhem could not be traced between September 28 and October 1.

Yet, soldiers and police officers combed the whole of Kumba. All through the night, police contingents paraded the major boulevards and access roads into town. On the night of September 30 breaking October 1, public gatherings, beer parlours and even church vigils failed to hold into the new month.

Even commercial motorcyclists that are known for hustling till dawn were few on the streets. Other presumed SCNC strongholds such as Ekombe in Mbonge Subdivision and parts of Kupe-Muanenguba and Manyu were not missed out on by the forces of law and ORDER

Restaurant Owners, Bikers Peddling Signature Lists

Before October 1, makeshift restaurant owners and bikers in Kumba were reportedly collecting signatures for the SCNC course.

These groups of persons are said to be agents of persuasion that easily get people to append their signatures on the lists in line with Njoh Litumbe’s 2million signature demanded by the United Nations, UN, for the Southern Cameroons referendum.

BaretaNews notes that this is a sign of defiance. The momentum only builds.
