Des attaques armées sanglantes dans la zone anglophone (médias)

africanews | Plusieurs localités camerounaises du Sud-ouest anglophone ont été hier, la cible d’attaques armées attribuées aux séparatistes. Le bilan provisoire fait état d’un mort dans les rangs de l’armée régulière.

Tirs de kalachnikov par ici, coup de mitrailleuse par là, des populations dans la panique, …. Mundongo, Buea et bien d’autres localités ont passé la journée d’hier dans une ambiance de quasi guerre suite à des attaques armées simultanées menées par des bandes armés soupçonnées appartenir aux groupes séparatistes anglophones.

« Des bandes armées de l’ ‘‘Ambazonie‘’ (État non reconnu par Yaoundé) ont barricadé plusieurs routes de la région et quand des militaires sont descendus pour libérer les voies, ces terroristes se sont attaqués à nos forces », a indiqué à l’agence de presse Anadolou, Bernard Okalia Bilai, gouverneur de la région.

Si certains responsables ont fait état d’un mort au sein de l’armée régulière, toute la journée d’hier aucun bilan officiel n’a été rendu public.

Toutefois, ce sont les civils qui ont fait les frais de ces affrontements. « Des militaires vont de maison en maison et interpellent des jeunes gens soupçonnés d’appartenir à l’Ambazonia Defense Force (ADF- branche armée). Les personnes interpellées sont séquestrées, battues et leurs maisons incendiées », indique John Ngu, l’un des villageois tout en ajoutant que plusieurs villages ont été désertés ces dernières 24 heures.

Allégations balayées par le Colonel Didier Badjeck, porte-parole de l’armée qui a indiqué que « l’armée fait son travail avec professionnalisme et dans le respect des droits de l’homme ».

Au moins 40 militaires et plus de 500 civils ont été tués dans les régions anglophones depuis le déclenchement en fin 2016 de la crise dite anglophone, selon le Réseau de Défenseurs des Droits Humains de l’Afrique Centrale (REDHAC).

En outre, d’après le haut commissariat des Nations unies pour les réfugiés (UNHCR) plus de 7000 personnes se seraient réfugiées dans l’Etat de Cross river au Nigeria. L’Agence nigériane de gestion des urgences (SEMA) évoque pour sa part le chiffre de 28 000.

  1. #kill all terrorists in our country as well as their backers both home and abroad!

  2. I HAVE NEVER LOVED BLOOD SHED BUT SK(AMBAZONIA) MUST START COMMING TO THE BITTER TRUTH, THAT OUR ONLY WAY TO FREEDOM MIGHT BE THE AYABA CHO METHOD.
    BIYA, LRC &FRANCE HAS REPPEATED REFUSED DIALOGUE AND NEGOTIATION, SK STARTED BY BEGGING, MOVE TO STRIKE FOR THEIR BUT LRC ARRESETED AND FRUSTRATED ALL THOSE WE COULD CALLED MODERATE IN AMBAZONIA. APPOINTMENT OF ATANGA NJI IS A CLEAR SIGN THAT BIYA SHALL NEVER WILLING ACCEPT ANY NEGOTIATION. WHEN ATANGA NJI SAY THERE IS NO ANGLOPHONE AND HE IS THE APPOINTED THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR. I HAVE NEVER BEEN AN ADVOCATE OF AYABA CHO BUT THE TRUTH IS BITTER, FREEDOM HAS NEVER BEEN GIVEN FREE ANY WHERE, DEPLOMACY SHOULD BE COMPLEMENTED BY GUN ACTION, EACH TIME I TELL FOREIGNERS I AM FROM SK THEY WILL SAY ‘AMBOZONIA’ MEANING WE HAVE DONE ENOUGH DEPLOMACY

    • Sadly your words hold truth

    • Cho’s vision is not just a tactical miscalculation but a foolish strategy as well. There is just no way you can challenge a sovereign nation with arms and expect to garner support from any entity. Who is going 2 finance his egocentric vision, and for how long?

      Pple like Cho are the reason for the new wave of hate for certain Anglos, who’re now being seen as nothing but monsters. There is no way you can engage in massacre in the name of vendetta and expect to earn sympathy simply cos pple are going to see no difference between you and your enemy. On the contrary , cards would swap sides, and the original perpetrator of violence would now become the victim.

      Very foolish boi…

      • Listen to real fighters like Mancho. You think he is publicly avoiding to endorse the Cho-option cos he wants to be freed? That Cho man must be a drug addict who thinks he can just come in and steal part of the show, and the rest would just be mbong-mbong (candy). Same with his mentor, Ayuk Tabe.

        The earlier pple start giving their ears to the approach of the likes of Dr Munze the better.

        You can never dupe reality…

        • ZanZam, Your mami pima dirty Mbamileke swine. Anglophones don’t need your francophone endorsement or sympathy. Who is this frog eyes frog struggling to tell us how to wage the war against LRC? Your mami yi fat Pima. We Live free or die.

        • Hahahaha, AmbaBlood.

          Ah bin be di mimba b4 sey ma own suffer for dis grong na one in town, but ah di surely mek mistake.

          Poh-poh you di mimba sey na only Biya get opposition for dis grong?

          Na exactly so yi bin be di hot/burn Biya and yi gang dem hearts time wey Ni John bin be di oppose them oh!

          Abeg tighten ya belt and tek’am easy. Ifi you start for waste all ya vex so wey na daso toli about virtual republic, how you go do when the republic go become true-true?

          You go send all we, opposant dem, for kondengui?…

        • Anglo Bami illiterate swine.

        • Na so truth di turn-turn hot man for heart?…

  3. The regime is pushing people like Ayaba to b the “terrorists “ a term they so desperately want to use. U can’t solve a problem by refusing its existence. Until LRC realises that the terms of the union when Yde and Buea came as joint business partners has been hugely violated, only then will real discussion on the crux of the matter start. Am not for war n senseless killings

  4. **** FOOD FOR THOUGHT ****

    1. Dictator Biya’s FOOLISH war is UNWINNABLE. It is open-ended.It might only end by 2035 i.e. after “one and indivisible” LRC has EMERGED.

    2. The Anglophone Question is all about the RIGHT OF SELF DETERMINATION. It cannot be suppressed or resolved by:

    * translating the OHADA text
    * using the military and mercenaries to commit genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity
    * creating a so-called Commission on bilingualism
    * appointing a denier of the problem as Interior Minister
    * refusing to dialogue
    * etc

    3. The quest for self-determination of the Anglophones is credible and compelling. It MUST be resolved this time around come rain come shine. There is nothing LRC and France can do to stop the present momentum.

    THE WAR CONTINUES…

  5. To all those from LRC including all AngloBami , who pretend to be from Sk b/c they speak English ( no matter how long a crocodile lives in water it shall never become a fish or mammal) now that Biya LRC & France have categorically refused dialogue and even with the So called moderate from Ambazonia like Bala , Mancho, Aya , Wiba , Ayuk Tabe etc with respect to the form of State & Governance What others other options do Ambazonia have? Either they accept total Assimilation or Freedom which never comes Free. Ambazonia beg for their rights LRC refused , they strike they were humiliated by LRC Military, they ask for amicable restoration they were kidnap, and every they are being killed. Even though SK still love & respect Ayuk T but the people no longer believe in Diplomacy Without guns
