Cameroon Ambassador to the UN says Nigeria is helping the Biya regime because they do not want Biafra
Amid the killings by La Republique’s Paul Biya government, Inner City Press on October 11 interviewed the government’s ambassador to the UN, Tommo Monthe. He contradicted what UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric told Inner City Press, that “Mr. [Francois] Fall and the Government are in discussion about when he can go.
The Government has expressed its willingness to welcome him. It’s now a matter of finding the dates.” Inner City Press two days after Dujarric’s quote – which Dujarric has twice refused to expand upon – asked Cameroon’s Ambassador Monthe who replied of Fall,”Why he should visit Cameroon?”
Monthe, his usual talkative self, told Inner City Press of the Anglophone zones, “There are three groups: the corporate interest… that’s good, that’s legitimate… The second group is hooligan, that’s casseur, the people who burn the flag… the third group, they are entering political campaign.” Of the recently announced Anglophone candidate to replace Biya, Monthe said, “He will have problem with the secession people…. traitor. People say that his father was a traitor.”
Inner City Press asked him about documentary evidence of money paid to pro-Biya associations for support during the General Assembly week: ‘That guy is now with the tribunal, he said, ‘I’m guilty.’ He went to PNC Bank, we are no longer with that bank, we sued the bank…” On Inner City Press’ questions during GA week to Nigeria’s foreign minister, Monthe said: “Nigeria helps us, they do not want Biafra…”
