Villagers in Kendem and Mbeme have told Cameroon Concord News that a retired gendarmerie officer including seven people found dead in the Awanchi-Betieku sub constituency in Upper Banyang had been arrested by the Francophone dominated army a week earlier and taken to Batibo.
Their remains currently littering on the main road from Kendem Mile 37 to Widikum is the latest in a spate of killings and kidnappings presently going on in Southern Cameroons that the Interim Government of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia say are being conducted by the French Cameroun army against innocent Southern Cameroons civilian population.
With huge support from the French and Nigerian governments, the Biya regime has blatantly refused to respond to repeated requests for comment from human rights groups. The ruling CPDM crime syndicate is yet to even acknowledged any abuses by its forces but has constantly through its so-called government spokesman and minister of communication, Issa Tchiroma Bakary rejected many allegations made by Amnesty International.
Civilians in Southern Cameroons are living in fear as the UN acting under strong French government influence has turned a blind eye to the genocide in Southern Cameroons. There are hundreds of enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings of civilians ever since the Anglophone uprising started a year ago.
The Acting President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, Dr. Samuel Sako recently endorsed the policy of self-defense and his government has promised to start an armed struggle against the Biya regime in French Cameroun. A reporter with a sister publication, Cameroon Intelligence Report hinted that slowly but surely armed groups loyal to the Interim Government are taken control of the territory. The Southern Cameroons self-defense forces have since regrouped in Manyu, Lebialem, Akwaya, Tombel, Nguti, Mundemba and Jakiri and are carrying out attacks, winning recruits by playing on local grievances.
Hundreds of French Cameroun soldiers have abandoned the army and escaped from duty following deployment to Southern Cameroons since the start of the year, raising concerns about the Biya regime’s ability to conduct presidential elections planned for this October.
Southern/ Cameroons Ambazonia is a victim of aggression and genocide by its neighbours. The crimes committed against the Federal Republic of Ambazonia for fifty-six years which intensified in the last two years are of an economic, cultural and human nature. The economic war has led to the looting and pillaging of Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia economy, natural resources, land grab, and destruction of the means of sustenance and starving our people to death. The cultural genocide targets the Southern Cameroons identity and its very existence. The human component targeted the Ambazonian sanity and lives.
Gendarmes, secret police and soldiers are deployed to Southern Cameroons to rape girls and women, humiliate traditional rulers, desecrate religious and core spiritual belief system, impose perpetual fear and render so-called Anglophone elites, Fons and Chiefs beggars and subservient collaborators in the annexation, systematic massacre, abduction and disappearance of their own people. Southern Cameroons traditional rulers have been turned into auxiliaries of an alien enemy administration and informants of the brutal colonial secret police in the land which their ancestors passed over to them and posterity. These are the crimes the Ambazonia self defense groups have taken up arms to free all Southern Cameroons from.
