Consortium says Schools to remain closed, civil disobedience campaign to continue, Wilfred Tassang is alive and safe
The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium has announced that one of its leaders, the Great Wilfred Tassang is now being secretly sheltered in a Western embassy in Yaoundé. The information was made public by the interim coordinator of the Consortium in Europe, Mark Bareta.
The Consortium statement added that the unnamed European country has agreed in principle to provide Wilfred Tassang the necessary protection a leader of his standing and quality deserves. The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium also officially announced that internet services in the Buea and Bamenda provinces of West Cameroon have been shut down by La Republique du Cameroun.
We got intelligence that the Consortium Chairman Barrister Agbor Balla advised Wilfred Tassang to make the move to Yaounde in a private car. The Anglophone leaders have also appealed to West Cameroonians residing in La Republique du Cameroun, Gabon and neighboring Nigeria to get involve in transmitting information from the Consortium to the people of Southern Cameroons.
The leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium have declared that the civil disobedience campaign will continue beginning next week and will be staged on Mondays and Wednesdays. Millions of Southern Cameroonians have expressed pessimism with life under the Biya Francophone Beti Ewondo regime and are now calling for a two state federation or a separate state for British Southern Cameroons.
The Anglophone communities have unanimously accepted that they have no positive perspectives for the future as repression against the freedom of opinion are continuing, including the online media. Schools will remain closed until all Anglophone demands are met by the Francophone regime.
