Ambazonia accuses Nigeria of abduction, demands release of President, 10 others

...  Indicts UK, UN, EU of negligence

The Interim Government of the former British Southern Cameroons known as the Federal Republic of Ambazonia has accused the Nigerian government of abducting its President, Julius Ayuk Tabe and 10 others, reports ITRealms.

AmbazoniaITRealms also gathered, accused the United Kingdom (UK) as the root-cause of current negligence, while the United Nations (UN) and European Union (EU) were accused of abandonment.
According to the Secretary for Communication & IT, Federal Republic of Ambazonia, Mr. Chris Anu, the people of the former British Southern Cameroons noted with dismay, that since the abduction d at gunpoint on January 5th, 2018, the President, Julius Ayuk Tabe and 10 other members of his Cabinet have not been granted access to any lawyers and family members by the Nigerian government. “which we are now aware that in complicity with the Cameroon regime in Yaoundé, engineered their abduction.”

They equally condemned vehemently, the fact that the Nigerian Government, more than a week after the abductions has not as much considered a press statement on the abductions even when the majority of those abducted are duly registered refugees in Nigeria.
“Nigeria is a signatory to International conventions on human rights, and to be acting recklessly as it is doing in this case, is a bridge of those conventions,” he said.

Further, they called on the “Nigerian authorities to immediately effect the unconditional release of our President and the 10 others abducted along with him on January 5th.”

“We are demanding for the immediate and unconditional release of Dr. Nfor Ngala Nfor, Dr. Fidelis Nde Che, Dr. Henry Kimeng, Prof. Che Awasum
Dr. Cornelius Kwanga, Mr. Tassang Wilfred, Dr. Ojong Okonghor, Barrister Nalowa Bih
Barrister Shufai Blaise Berinyuh and Barrister Eyambe Elias.

“We would like to bring to the attention of the Nigerian Government, and the world at large the fact that these victims abducted in the guise of fomenting trouble in the nation of Cameroon are not Cameroonians. They are Ambazonians. And as long as the Cameroon Government continues the military occupation, assault, rape, killings and the savagery on property in the Ambazonian territory, our resolve to launch a campaign aimed at economic divestment in la Republic du Cameroun will not relent.

“We will target foreign companies that do business in La Republique du Cameroun and whose revenue supports Mr. Paul Biya’s corrupt and inefficient functionaries. It is time for Western Governments to pass a Cameroon Divestment Act that will force their governments to cut investment ties with companies doing business in La Republique du Cameroun. But if they don’t, our actions will definitely force them to do so.”

He insisted that the Interim Government will like to make this clarification; The Cameroon crisis isn’t about secessionists or separatists, as is being widely reported.
“Ours is rather a classic problem of a failed decolonization from British colonial rule. If Britain had granted Southern Cameroons independence like all other colonial powers did to their territories, this problem would not be here now. So let it be made plain and clear, Ambazonians are not separatists or secessionists, we are freedom fighters in the order of Nkrumah, Lumumba, Awolowo, Azikiwe, John Garang, Nyerere etc., fighting colonization by La Republique du Cameroun. The Union between La Republique du Cameroun and the Southern Cameroons was never consummated,” he lamented.

The IG of Ambazonia, he said, will continue worldwide campaigns for Southern Cameroons’ right to self-determination and continuous nonviolent protest within Cameroon until our dream of a completely free and independent Ambazonia is achieved. “Nothing less.” 

Abducting our leaders isn’t going to deter us, it will only just spur us the more. And killing, arrest, torture, rape and even a hundred thousand more refugees will not deter our resolve. 

He insisted that they have battled the injustice forced upon them by the British Government for 56 years.

“If the international community thinks we are now ready to let go at this juncture, it is mistaken. If the UN, EU, Commonwealth, the AU, the US and British governments want to stop a bloodbath in Cameroon, the time is now, not tomorrow. Every one of us, 8 million Ambazonians will be killed before our territory will be made part of Cameroun again,” he maintained.
