Nigeria against pro-secessionist activities – Diplomat to Cameroon

africanews Nigeria says it is against activities of pro-secessionist groups in neighbouring Cameroon, according to its High Commissioner designate to the Central African neighbour.

Lawan Abba Gashagar in a meeting with the Cameroonian president Paul Biya on Thursday said Nigeria will neither support nor encourage secessionists but would rather collaborate to secure the territorial integrity of Cameroon.

President Biya last week declared war on secessionists in the country’s Anglophone region. A heavy military deployment has followed his declaration with people said to be fleeing the two regions – the northwest and southwest.

Both Nigeria and Cameroon are battling with separatist groups, the respective governments have stressed that unity was non-negotiable.

Whereas the Anglophone minority in Cameroon are protesting marginalization by the French majority which events have led to the creation of a so called Ambazonia state. Security forces continue to clampdown on their activities.

Over in Nigeria, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group until recently were repeatedly clashing with the military. Its leader Nnamdi Kanu is still missing for over two months now. IPOB is also an independence battle of states in Nigeria’s southeast.

  1. The beginning of the end.
    Sisiku or whatever his name is will be behind bars very soon.
    Daniel Elolobi will round up the ones that don’t leave.
    Real Camerooonians have nothing to fear.
    Peace and order will prevail.

    • What do you mean by saying “the beginning of the end of Sisiko” . Keep people clear from that your statement.

    • Idiot!!! ADF – SoCaDEF joint operations seizes 2nd BIR Hilux in < 24 hours after sinking BIR boat in the Agborkem German Eyumujock river. What an embarrassing turn out? The noise making BIR was just a puffed up weak entity after all. The struggle continues….

      • Some of these citizens of LRC think that Southern Cameroonians are joking. More than 20 ( twenty) LRC Gendarmes, police and BIR were killed and many wounded by the ADF in Manyu. Their Minister of defence is in Buea today to decorate six of their dead occupiers. No army can defeat a determined people in their motherland. LRC is simply wasting time and souls because there is no way Biya’s so-called “one and indivisible” LRC will survive this war. The Anglophone Question will at last be resolved on the battlefield.

        • “How many more people Paul Biya go kill ooooh !!!!”

        • That is why I say some of those so called Anglophones around the Nigerian Cameroon border have tainted Biafra blood in them. If they don’t want to be Cameroonians anymore due to their tainted Biafra blood, they are free to go and join their brothers in Nigeria. Read my lips “Cameroon can never ever be divided.” It is OK to have sweet dreams though.

    • Folks, see the sign of things ! This old gorilla can’t even get the name of someone he considers his compatriot and a military leader. Daniel Elolobi, Daniel Elolobi, drunkard! What the gods of mount Cameroon have put asunder, you cannot force it back together! These are the slow learners afflicted by doing in drunkenness and theft who want to keep cosying up to Anglophones!

      • I am dying to know the rationale and possibly the criteria that determined the choice of Commander Elokobi for such a mission. Doesn’t it smell curiously and familiarly sinister after Achidi Achu/Fru Ndi duel, Philemon Yang/Fru Ndi and lately Felix Agbor Nkongho/Julius Ayuk Tabe pairings? Is there a hidden magic bullet for the much clamored dialogue?

    • French Cameroon after bribing top UN officials and failed, have now turned to the bribing of diplomats. what happened to the so called international warrant of arrest? The restoration of Ambazonia state is unstoppable and not even the UN, or Nigeria can stop it. Not even the arrest of our president H.E Ayuk Julius tabe can stop us. The person to be arrested here for crimes against humanity is Paul BIya of French Cameroon.

      • Maybe that your Ayuk Julius is the president of your Matutu house. He is not the president of us Anglophone Cameroonians. He is not recognized in Bamenda.

  2. Restoration of statehood does not mean secession! When two cubes of sugar turn into iron cubes and would not melt then they have to be separated to have clean water.
    Biafra is about secession like South Sudan because it was part of Nigeria at independence. Ambazonia was not part of LRC in the same vein that East Timor was not part of Indonesia.
    We similarly opposed the vote to grant Southern Cameroons in April 1961 and LOST at the UNGA. Cannot fool everyone.

    • Ambazombi does not exist! You are really confused, my friend. At one moment, you are the ardent Ambazombi element… next moment you are referring to Cameroon as OUR COUNTRY etc etc etc! But hey, you are right about one thing though: Ambazombi was never part of Cameroon… It is fictional! Southern Cameroons was derived from Kamerun and Ambazombi wasn’t. An extra-legal entity can only make legal claims in the world of fiction. At least, Biafra is part and parcel of Nigeria. Thus, Biafra is a physical entity and polity.

      I am sure that is the argument sicksekou and his band of coward terrorist conmen will make when the Nigerian police come arrest them and turn them over to the Republic of Cameroon.

  3. @AG

    hahahahahhahahaha

    they will rise and fall so bad ” traitor” for the nation.

  4. Proudambazonian

    Our Fight is different from that of Nigeria. We are restoring our Nation. we should not depend on Nigeria for help because they will never help. They too are suffering from secession and feel that if they help, then they can fall in the same faith

  5. Nigeria is not Cameroon where the president is all and all.To release some of the chinook girls Buhari had to go on his knees and beg boko haram.Nigeria negotiates with boko haram .So to be happy on this forum that Nigeria will flush out Sisiku Ayuk Tabe is like living in a dream world.Cross river state of Nigeria has the Ijagham tribe who are more in Nigeria than in Cameroon.Ijaghams in Nigeria are not the francophonised Ijaghams of Cameroon they will protect Sisiku to the last man.Biya is a killer but he is still walking free in Cameroon and abroad.If a mirderer like Biya can be moving then a freedom fighter like Sisiku will have only the skies as his limit.Pro Biya supporters in forum who fully know the crimes of your master murderer Paul Mvondo Biya are quick to pass stupid judgement.

    • @ Calabar man, we Anglophone Cameroonians will never allow your Anglophone Cameroonian brothers with tainted Biafra blood come and destroy our country even if it means supporting our dictator whom we equally hate. Cameroonians are peaceful people and will not tolerate any barbarism from your Biafra brothers in Cameroon. I have advised them to come and join you people in Nigeria if they don’t want to be Cameroonians anymore. Just because their Biafra brothers want to separate from Nigeria doesn’t mean they too with their tainted Biafra blood can come and claim a fictional country called Ambazonia in Cameroon. ( If their mama be be na ashawo for Nigeria make them go meet their half brother them for Ijagham for Nigeria). There was never a part in Cameroon called Ambazonia. It sounds Biafran.

  6. Nigeria is 200 million people and could never defeat a rack-tagged Boko Haram when it started as a security guard group. Now BH is a full fledged well armed group supported by prominent Nigerians. BH is therefore a nightmare for Nigeria. When it started I warned LR to be careful and was told it is a Nigeria problem -foolish thinking then and now. Look at the border between Cameroon and Nigeria-2000 miles or so. Very difficult to control for LR. LR, do you want to add another BH type crisis with Southern Cameroons!. Nigeria also has the Igbo crisis which is indirectly closer to LR and very dangerous for LR.

  7. Korup Forest

    Maybe times to send all Nigerians who live in Kumba back to Nigeria?

  8. Diplomatic language. Nothing more nothing less.
    The so-called warrants of arrest against the leaders of SC can NEVER EVER be executed by Nigeria.

    The Southern Cameroons defence groups are doing a fantastic job. The BIRs of LRC have been defeated in many battles. Their boats have been sunk, many killed and weapons seized.
    Dictator Paul Adolf Hitler Biya will regret declaring war on Southern Cameroonians.

    What do you expect the High Commissioner to have said, that Naija is committed to the Southern Cameroon struggle for Independence. For diplomatic reasons he won’t say such a thing. But in as much as our border along the South East is very much open for the Southern Cameroonians shows that Nigeria is monitoring events in Cameroon with kin interest, the safety of her nationals on one hand and the influx of refugees that will find their way into Naija on the other hand is our major concerns, so we must preach peace now.

    The Southern Cameroonians have so many sympathizers in Nigeria, don’t forget at one point in time they where govern from Naija. My fears, while the government of Naija is against secessionist, Ambazonians will gain support because of its complexity with the Niger Deltans.

    • You have 5 million Nigerians living in Cameroon, and they have been going about their lives with no problems. We have Ibo quarters in many different towns thanks to the generosity of Cameroon. But any Nigerians that are caught fomenting trouble in Cameroon will have themselves to blame.

      By the way, Nigeria has a much bigger problem of its own with IPOD. Your Biafra leader has been missing for a staggering 2 months, and all you do is talk about Cameroon!

      • It’s IPOB junky. Where did you get your 5 Million statistics from? You just read things in the net and use them as succinct facts? Delusional impostor. Your knowledge of diplomacy is seriously wanting? Hot air political scientist.

        • You are one of those 5 millions and this serves as a warning to you.
          You will be cornered

  10. The devil, is fooling biya by giving him a long rope to drag.

    Very unfortunate, that it is hard for him to see it.

    • Ambazombi is falling?!!!!!! When did it rise?

      Nigeria is playing a double game… Cameroon must follow up immediately with this development and demand that Nigeria hands over all the secessionist vandals that are hiding in Nigeria. This is the way to ensure that Nigeria complies by upholding its commitment. Otherwise, Nigeria would be seen as a hostile neighbor… and we can take things from there.

    • You and Ras Tuge are so FOOLISH and gullible. Did you expect regional super powerhouse Nigeria to say otherwise? The fundamentals remain unchanged. Ambazonia is seemingly inching forward. Inaction by Yaounde is not the solution to political separation of the two nations in a failed federation.

  13. Most of you live in Europe..
    Most of you have seen how Europeans who dont even love each other , work on the basis of respect to obtain a common goal..
    You have a small cameroon, cant even manage it and keep spreading hate, celebrate killings and dont even bring in any constructive Argument here that can be help ..
    No sense of unity..No sense of nation building..
    The chaos you see in yaounde is seen in this forum..
    Its so shameful to read from brothers and sisters of same country writing and behaving like the polish and Germans in the second world war..
    You should be smart enough to stand against all forms of killings in cameroon..
    You should be smart enough to know all these killings are bringing pains and nobody will win atlast..
    You should know nobody can win..Its very shameful ..

  14. Its very shameful that an old corrupt despot like Biya can be talking to a Nigerian and working a strategy to kill his own people, the same people he has stolen for over 30 years and we join the old man in the fight to damage our house..

    What is wrong with blacks..?
    Why are we so stupid?..
    Why are we against all forms of unity?..
    Why do we love in Slave our own brothers and sisters?..
    Shouldnt we be ashame about what is happening in our country?..
    So we can really come out and support all these old people who have failed to unite our country..
    People who have stolen our wealth and are hiding them in the west?..
    Something is not right with us people…
    Is it not shameful to celebrate the killing of a cameroonian by a cameroonian?

  15. 12 to 20 troops reportedly murdered last night in Manyu according to social media. I wish fake names Ras Tuge and Africans for DT could be flushed out of their rat holes abroad to join the draft and be sent to Mamfe to defend LRC. Need a peaceful solution to establish long-lasting peace, security and economic cooperation in the Gulf of Guinea. Ambazonia is real. Behind every true Anglophone is a separatist. No joke about it.

    • Social media!!!!!! You are such an inexperienced fellow, as I can tell from your comments. You are so successful in your hazardous mission, and yet you NEED a peaceful solution! Oh well, this is the logic of insanity.

      • Ras Tuge denies current events, that 9/22 and 1/10 mean nothing. Social media which LRC has clamped down on in Ambazonia cannot be dis-invented! Tweets by Etoudi and Communications Chief Tchiroma are very telling and confirm greater advancement than Ras Tuge from an igloo at this time of the year in Scandinavia.

  16. USA Africa,
    We are laughing ourselves to sleep as we see you roll out your other Donald Trump name to conceal the fact that you are now falling over yourself about the same Nigeria you have vomited over the years. I warned you that I will beat you in your game whenever necessary. Wait for Buhari to tie up the legs of ADF forces and hand them over to you! You chanted on this forum for Biafras to go back to Nigeria and now you want Buhari to hand them back to you? Boko Haram came all the way from Nigeria and seized the wife of your Vice PM and took her away. Now instead of using this kind of bravado to go into Nigeria and get hold of those you call terrorists, you want Buhari to bind their legs and deliver them to you. Drunk gorilla, what a shame!

      @Firefighter
      You have a right to be delusional. I can not control your imagination and do not seek to do that.
      I come here to expose you coward terrorist conmen.

      My comments are clear:

      Sicksekou Ayuk Tabe Julius and his band of coward terrorist conmen are now very concerned. They need to find a new hiding place! Nigeria will arrest and turn them over to Cameroon. Kondengui is waiting for them!

      They will pay for killing police men who are sent to guard schools!
      They will pay for the abolishment of education in the NW&SW of Cameroon!

      In regards to the above, your comment is completely irrelevant!

      • When will you pay for the burning of administrative buildings for the past 35 years? When will you pay for burning the National Assembly? When will you pay for the sensitive information about billions you embezzled in these places? When will you pay for the markets burnt to inflict pain on people who are not of your political coloration? When will you pay for the destruction of the business premises of predominantly Bamilekes over the years? Add that to the financial terrorists you have at Kondengui and understand why Anglophones are running for their dear lives. You need to pay for being rapists, drunkards and terrorists.

  17. For ever young

    Right on point commrade we warn dis rapists useless la republique terrorists army a couple of months ago to stop the killings of innocent Anglo civilians for dis will escalate to an arms struggle since the only language dis moronic bastards& their supporters understand is brutality, killing& rape didn’t listen but was proud of the atrocities to innocent Anglo civilians, now that we’ve rise our brave freedom fighters to defend the honor of their mothers& sisters against dis moronic bastards they’re started to realize serious to confront them in the battle fields& clowns dis is just the beginning of a very long & bloody fight, wicked despotic Regime can negotiate withdraw their rapist army in southern Cameroon or allow blood on the both sides spilled out, Nigerian in kumba don’t be afraid

    You are shallow minded and seem not to understand the trend when it comes to gorilla warfare with secessionist of these nature. The problem is degenerating gradually and it is also spreading like wildfire towards the Naija border, and when it reaches our border i bet you sympathizers will hijack it, then it will become difficult for LRC because, SC will operate freely due to the presence of similar tribes on both side, the tick forest along the border will serve as safe haven to carry out their activities, and illegal trade for sure will coexist, and mind you some Naijas will take advantage of this not minding the consequences.

    The IPOB whose case in all ramification is not exactly the same as SC, and are not well placed geographically like the SC. The SC are united unlike the IPOB.

    • Thank you Bros. This idiots have no idea even the powerful German army could not succeed in this area. Down with LRC and anything affiliated to it.

    • You were not able to fight against Boko Haram… and you are making noise about ‘Nigerian border’ with your bad English! Boko Haram mainly constitutes a trans-border tribe like the Kanuri that is spread over 5 countries. Yet, Boko Haram couldn’t get an inch of territory in Cameroon as it did occupy entire cities in Nigeria. You should be thankful to Cameroon for assisting you over and over again!

      We know that the Ejagham people are spread across Nigeria… but those in Nigeria are Nigerians, and if they attempt to fight against Cameroon, we shall treat them just like we have been doing to Boko Haram.

      By the way, you know nothing about Cameroon. We have tribes in the SW that are also spread across the so-called Francophone region. So Ejagham is not unique. Don’t be caught in Cameroon

    • By the way, Cameroon is brilliant when it comes to GUERILLA warfare. That’s our specialty, alongside the containment of all forms of ELMI. We have just recently become a tremendous force in anti-terror warfare thanks to Boko Haram!

      The forest is our shrine… and there will be no sanctuary for any adventurers. Ask your Nigerian people that are residing on our territory about their experiences in Cameroon… So, if you don’t mind the consequences, go ahead and encourage your people to ‘take advantage’! Let your sympathizers hijack the matter… but they should stay in Nigeria and fight against the Nigerian government because dabbling in Cameroon will be a different ballgame. They will be treated with absolutely no mercy if caught.

    • @ Brown Sugar, we the majority of Anglophone Cameroonians will never accept the barbarism of those your brutal Anglophone Cameroon brothers with tainted Biafra blood. We will eliminate them by any means necessary even if it means supporting our brutal dictator to do it. ( If their mama be be na ashawo for Nigeria make them go meet their half brother them for Ijagham for Nigeria). There was never a part in Cameroon called Ambazonia. It sounds Biafran.
