Cameroon: ‘Ambazonia’, a thousand day conflict [+vidéo]

FRANCE 24 | In the two English-speaking regions of southern Cameroon, the country’s regular army has been fighting secessionist armed groups in an asymmetric war for the past three years.

In October 2017, English-speaking separatists declared a breakaway state known as “Ambazonia”. The armed insurgency has turned into a guerrilla war, killing thousands of people, displacing nearly 700,000 more and leaving millions of civilians trapped. FRANCE 24 brings you a rare glimpse of one of Africa’s forgotten humanitarian tragedies.

  1. Sondo, Mvondo, Pelene, Piando and even Diop from Senegal just like Colby from Bassa Mussong land and James/Nelson/Mbappe/MungoAkonolinga from macaque territory are twisting and producing fiction that thinfa have return to normal. Keep acting your movie with Abah and Romanus, our guns will free us by hook or by crook. If not of the impostor fake Dr/pastor Sako Ikome that was carefully inserted in our midst, Ambazonians would’ve been broadcasting now from State House Buea. Everything has its time. We will get there and we are never ever going to drop our guns. Never.. Ambazonians don’t blink!!

  2. `forgotten humanitarian tragedies`, because France, is concerned. But not
    everyone, will be killed and France will not have it in the end. This is not the
    sixties to the nineties. No.

  3. The Biafran war ended after three years because the Biafrans fought a CONVENTIONAL war against Nieria. They used planes, tanks, etc against Nigeria and lost. Had Biafra used ASYMMETRICAL warfare they would have
    surely succeeded. This is so because ASYMMETRICAL warfare aka guerilla warfare is unwinnable.

    The strongest nation on planet earth, the US, lost asymmetrical wars in Vietnam, Irak, Afghanistan because Asymmetrical wars are UNWINNABLE.
    Of course, the so-called “one and indivisible” LRC has already lost the war in SC because:

    1. Amba boys have snubbed the so-called commission on disarmament
    2. most of SC is now UNGOVERNABLE
    3. the war is now OPEN-ENDED since no one knows when it will ever end.
    4. The rulers of LRC are ashamed to confess that the war is UNWINNABLE and UNSTOPPABLE

    • **** PROPHECY ****

      „Si vous voulez la vérité, sachez donc ceci : si le Gouvernement persiste dans sa répression et son entêtement à maintenir les Anglophones dans l’Etat unitaire, c’est l’Etat du Cameroun qui va s’effondrer et non la Sécession Anglophone“. Dieudonné ESSOMBA

      * MY TAKE *

      A word to the wise is sufficient.

      Unfortunately, the CRIMINALS ruling the dystopian LRC are not wise. That is the reason they rule by deceit, deception and terror.

    • CONCLUSION

      LRC is ruled by the most corrupt, dishonest, faithless, deceitful, arrogant, foolish, stupid, despicable, evil, demonic and insensitive CRIMINALS on planet earth.

      A country ruled by deceit, deception and terror is likened to a house built on sand.
      It is common knowledge and a celebrated fact that a house built on sand cannot stand for long.

      Thank God, Dictator Biya’s UNWINNABLE, UNSTOPPABLE; UNCONTROLLABLE and financially UNSUSTAINABLE war will rescue the Anglophones from that sh*thole VIVRE-ENSEMBLE with LRC.

      GOD IS INDEED GREAT

  4. What a professional Unit. Good job BIR. That terrorist thought he was in a safe place in that house in the middle of the jungle. Let’s this be a lesson to the rest of the terrorists, you will be found and kill.

    • And the sun did set and rose again and it was the 1,001st day and yet the Anglophones did not become francophones.
      How sad that : Les choses se normalisent prgressivement dans Nos regions du Nord-Ouest et du Sud-Ouest.
      This surely is a classic frog and hot water scenario. The water is boiling, let’s see if the “frog” will notice the difference.

  5. Hahahah this is purely a propaganda videoby france 24
