Cameroon Chiefs Create Militias for Protection from Separatists

YAOUNDÉ Voice of America | Traditional village chiefs in Cameroon’s restive western regions are for the first time creating armed militias for protection against separatists. Cameroon’s government has been asking traditional rulers who fled the separatist conflict to return to their palaces and take part in December’s regional elections. But a majority of the chiefs has been reluctant to return due to threats from the rebels.

The Nso people of Cameroon’s Northwest region shout and applaud in the town of Kumbo. They came out to listen to a plea from their elders and palace notables to give a memorable welcome to their traditional leader, Sehm Mbinglo, whenever he returns.

Mbinglo fled the area three years ago after separatists abducted him three times and killed two of his children for unknown reasons.

Among the nearly 1,000 people who came to listen to the notables was Dorothy Yekong, who said she is longing to see her Fon, or traditional ruler.

“When the peace makers said the Fon will be coming back, we just felt some peace in Kumbo because when we were there without the Fon it was just as if to say the child is there surrounded by lions. So, if he finally comes, we are sure that peace will return in Kumbo. He is the father of everybody in Kumbo,” she said.

Yekong said she was pleading with separatists fighting to create an English-speaking state in Cameroon not to attack palaces and notables who are only there to promote African cultures and traditions.

But shortly after the Nso elders and notable made the plea on people to welcome their village chiefs, separatist groups on social media warned against the chiefs returning.

Donatus Kewa, who said he is a spokesperson for separatist fighters in the North West region, says the chiefs act as informants for the military.

He said the village chiefs and their notables who escaped from the English-speaking regions to the French-speaking zones, especially Cameroon’s capital, Yaounde, will be killed if they return. He said the chiefs received help in escaping from the Cameroon military, which he said is an enemy that all English speakers should fight against.

John Ewome Eko, traditional chief of the southwestern village of Boassa, said he is ready to face the separatists. He said he has armed a militia to protect his palace, notables and all traditional artifacts.

“I have put in place a strong vigilante group of more than 100 youths ready to stand and face the Amba guys. They came and burned down parts of my own palace. They left with two girls and they stayed with them in the bushes for two weeks. They were raped, they tortured them, they came back with wounds all over their bodies. They came again, they seized goods from my villagers,” he said.

Deben Tchoffo, governor of the Northwest region, said militias created by chiefs should collaborate with government troops. He said no one should fear the separatists, whom he says are only intimidating chiefs and civilians.

“The traditional rulers are committed. The municipal counselors are committed. Elections Cameroon is ready. The security services are securing the region to allow us come the sixth of December to organize those elections in a peaceful environment,” he said.

Tchoffo said they were giving fighters another opportunity to drop their weapons and be pardoned or to be crushed by the military.

The separatist crisis that is in its fourth year has killed at least 3,000 people and displaced 550,000, according to the United Nations.

  1. I WONDER WHO THESE BANGA SMOKERS CALL AMBA ARE FIGHTING FOR.
    AMBA IS A SHAME TO ANGLOPHONES. AMBA WILL END IN TEARS. HAHAHA

  2. @nelson The chiefs,parliamentarians and mayors are operating clandestinely.Ambasonia have no act of union with La Republique du Cameroun.Amba boys have been fed with this information.They know what to do to those chiefs who are ”auxillary to the administration”…..Tik tak tik tak…..

    • @kongosa dont be confused between kidnappers, women beheaders and a revolution. you must be dreaming. i see you still have 10 years to see the reality that cameroon will never divide.
      I stand for anglophones not to be marginalized. ambazonia terrorism does’nt represent anglophones. ambas are kidnappers and beheaders that we are pointing them out to the military for cleansing. to think Ambazonia will ever exist is just a funny dream that can only end in tears. we are tired of that nonsense call ambazonia. how can you chase a chief like that of Nso from the village and you want independence. hahahahahah. these are really shit no wipe lass

  3. NELSON:- I hope you dont say this same statement after 10 years..
    Amba started fighting to free you 3 years ago..Many villages burnt, many killed and all you can stand up and say is “amba is a shame to Anglophones..
    Wake up, think again why this war started …
    If you dont have a family working in yaounde, you will honestly say BIYa and his Gang are the problem..
    If you can start up as an anglophone to instead insult people fighting for your liberation, then something is not right..
    Did you listen to EQUINOX what YOndo Black said?..
    Do you know that international bodies are putting pressure on Biya to call a dialogue and end the war?
    Dont you know that intelligent people understand why there is a war?
    We need a revolution to get things fix in that country…Wake up bro..

      Terrorist Biko: This war started because dumb jobless nyamfukahs in the diaspora (including you) manipulated ignorant youth to pick up marijuana, odeshi , tramol, whisky sachet and dane guns to break away a piece of The Republic of Cameroon!

      The war started because a janitorial scientist (cleaner) at a primary school in Norway appointed himself leader of the people of the North West and South West of Cameroon and manipulated some poor ignorant youth with drugs and charms to move around the province and brutally behead anyone who refuses to bow down to his leadership!

      The war started because ambazombie terrorist nyamfukahs abolished education for the poor in the North West and South West province of Cameroon!

      We are winning fatly!The facebook republic has been destroyed by black legs!

  4. Things are beginning to tilt toward the right direction.

    This bold move should be extended to big towns like Bamenda and K.

    It is now very apparent that out of 10 Amba fighters, only 1 may be fighting for the Anglo voice to be heard in CMR. The rest in the likes of l’enemi-e are simply warlords, who have sworn to bring Anglos back to stone age so their racketeering can go on for years.

    Rest assured, DEVILS, you were promised this right from day one. You’ll never know peace. We’re coming after you guys once this mess is over. No, you cannot sacrifice a whole generation in such a foolish manner and go with it unruffled. No Sirs, you must pay for your crimes and the time is getting closer…

  5. @Zam-Zam ”This bold move should be extended to big towns like Bamenda and K.”…..Wow,is that how you also prayed for the move to be extended when Ernest Ouandjie was fighting against Ahidjo? …..U don see weti?

    • @Kongosa,

      was Ouandjie kidnapping CMRs for ransom? How dare you compare such a great figure of our time to those SNWL in the bushes/USA/EU/SA?

      Who doesn’t know today that your mov’t’s main target are Anglos?

      Anglos are gently waking up, it is now clear in Bamenda, Kumba, Buea, Limbe, Kumbo, Nso….that something has to be done to balance the Amba violence on the populace. In fact, folks have to resort to tyres each time they lay hands on Amba fighters. It is only by balancing the Amba violence equation that peace can return. Violence+violence=peace. Mborroro folks understood this right from day one.

      Stop caressing those Amba boyz…

  6. @Joshua..How market for Sako,the right man to take us to Buea?….Ha ha ha ha..Sako is asking Sisiku,a man who was arrested in the capacity as leader,and president of the Interim Government, to dissolve his government…ha ha ha ha ha…Yaounde has failed.If Sako wanted to split from the IG, he should have created,may something like Ambasonia National Council (ANC) and carry his followers to his own organisation.IG is Sisiku’s brand and he is the president of the IG.AGC is Cho Ayaba’s Organisation and brand.Sounds like the two UPC we have had over the years in Cameroon..One is Pro-government and the other is the true opposition…
    It is becos Sisiku is a leader,thats why he was picked up.

  7. How can Sako suddenly want to make us understand that a man who was arrested as President of the Ambasonian Interim Government and locked up in Kondengui,do not exist? Sako’s faction of the IG sounds like the UPC faction of Augustine Frederick Kodock and today,Robert Bapooh Lipot..Sako’s IG is Yaounde’s IG..
    Ambasonia must be free….

    • Kumkum Pass Garri

      @Kongosa

      How can you suddenly want us to understand that the man who raised 2million US dollars to take all Ambazonians to the Delusional Republic of Ambazombies is not the alpha and omega of all ambazombies in the world?

      How can you suddenly want us to understand that the President of the Non Governmental Organisation in the US called Ambazonia Foundation is not the president of all ambazombies with the power to make Sick-Siku non existent?

      How can you suddenly want us to understand that the man who spent 60million francs CFA in 11 months on paper for the ambazombie course does not have the authority to make Sicksiku non existent?

      Kongosa, you must be the dumbest ambazombie terrorist nyamfukah!

  8. Being born into or having lived in a way, doesn`t, make that thing good to or for you.
    Ambazonia, shall become a reality, even after we are gone. The foundation, is there
    already.

  9. Cameroon will never be one and indivisible as long as the “Anglophone Problem” remains unsettled, and as long as there are armed militias at every corner…Amba, BIR, chief. Militias being created by chiefs certainly echo the inability of the government to protect its own. If the well-trained BIRs cannot then how can local chiefs create militias that will be more effective? In addition, this move simply adds a new level of flighting and conflict to the ongoing war, more guns, more disgruntled people. As soon as the militias start to kill people, they will start to create new enemies and so the vicious cycle of slaying will proliferate. The solution is not the creation of more militias, but open and sincere dialogue that is all encompassing of all parties concerned, including local chiefs.

    • What you’re cautioning against is right, but there are no longer freedom fighters in the bushes but warlords (armed robbers). And the only way to deal with them is to create vigilante groups who’ll work in tandem with BIR. The populace has suffered a great lot for no reason, they must take things into their hands and stop their misery.

      Our people back home wear the shoes, and only them know where it pinches most—any strategy to stop the pain can help…

      Ernest, Cameroon will always be one and indivisible!

      The Black Legs under the leadership of the King of Black Legs aka Igwe the grabber of the kanas of all ambazombies have vowed to get to the last ambazombie nyamfukah standing even if it takes 200 years! We are winning fatly!

      We have infiltrated the ambazombie groups and we have abundant audios from the ambazombies and their leaders in the diaspora confirming that they have lost the struggle.
      We continue to convert ambazombies on a daily basis to Black Legs! Chrimas Ebini and Eric Tataw are the latest converts, who provide reliable information for us to use to deradicalise the manipulated youth!

      We will continue to sunshine ambazombies in the diaspora like you, so that you will never return to our beloved 1 & indivisible country!

  10. This war is ideological,and i like the strategy that the Amba Boys have adopted.Since the government does not want to see people supporting the seperatist in the anglophone regions,so too do the seperatist,do not want to see people supporting the government,and ”one Cameroon” like the parliamentarians,mayors and chiefs.They too should remain on exile,because their security is not guaranteed..Government have prison,to keep civilians supporting the seperatist,unfortunately,the seperatist do not have prisons to keep people supporting the government,like councillors,parliamentarians and chiefs….So,when Amba boys arrest any of them,their fate is known already,becos we don’t have prison to keep prisoners….Tik tak tik tak….

  11. @Zam-Zam Since Ernest ouandjie was not kidnapping,can you tell me how he end up? did he win the war against Ahidjo and France? Ernest Ouandjie was not kidnapping,yet he was still called,terrorist.May be he did not have a good strategy to win Ahidjo and France,thats why he died like a chicken and u people ended up losing the war.People that have failed to win a war against France and her employee in Cameroon has no advise to give us on how to win against France and her Employee.Like I said,the war is not anglo vs Franco.The war is ideological.Any so called ”anglo” that supports One Cameroon will be persecuted,same as the gov’t is persecuting those that are supporting Amba…..U persecute my sympathizer,I persecute your sympathizer..So,stop telling us about us targeting ”anglos”.

    • You neither know the history of Ouandjie nor that of your country. That’s why you pride urself wishing mayhem to your fellow countrymen, who too are victims of what Ouandjie fought to redress.

      Youtube Ouandjie and listen to his interview in France when Moumié was poisoned. You dare compare him to illiterates like Ayaba Cho.

      One CMR (One Kamerun) didn’t start today, read the history books, kongosa.

      Cameroon is one and indivisible, go tok….

      • Kumkum Pass Garri

        Ayaba Cho is not an illiterate , he is a janitorial scientist (cleaner)!

        He certainly knows how to read the cleaning roaster to know when he needs to clean the school toilets, school canteen and class rooms and he certainly knows how to write as he is required to log the time he cleaned each facility.

        That is the extent of Ayaba’s literacy.

        My Questions to the People of the NW and SW:

        Did you give this container of useless knowledge (Ayaba Cho) the mandate to represent you?
        Where did this nyamfukah get his mandate from?

        In a recent outing the nyamfukah claims that with $500,000 he will bring down the Cameroon military.

        So 1 million ambazombies can not raise 278 million francs CFA over 4 years?. That is 278 frs per person!

        That is evidence they have no mandate/no support!

  12. “Tchoffo said they were giving fighters another opportunity to drop their weapons and be pardoned or to be crushed by the military.”

    * MY TAKE *

    RUBBISH, TOTAL RUBBISH !!

    Why????????????????????????????????????????????

    because it is the usual empty threat from the occupiers.
    Dictator Biya has said that severally. However, GENUINE Amba boys have said with one voice N-I-E-T.

    I have bad news for LRC. And read this carefully.

    GENUINE Amba boys and GENUINE Boko Haram militannts will NEVER EVER disarm. Secret negotiations are ongoing for an alliance between Amba boys and Boko Haram to form a common front to teach the so-called “one and indivisible” LRC a bitter lesson.

    THE FUTURE IS PREGNANT!!!!!!!

    • Kumkum Pass Garri

      UNSTOPPABLE Ambazombie nyamfukah, exposing his stupidity!

      You can rubbish it all you want and that will not bring back the kumkumised ambazombie terrorist nyamfukahs!

      The governor’s message is not directed to coward keyboard warriors like you. The message is directed to the Ambazombie nyamfukah terrorists on the ground. Mad Dog, Ayeke, Chacha, Dieman, etc just confided to General Ivo in Maryland that they wish they had listened to the governor and dropped their weapons.

      They are now serving their Gods Sako, Ayaba and Akwang in hell!

      Any unstoppable ambazombie terrorist nyamfukah who wants to rubbish this warning is invited to do so at Liberty square where Janera Maddog was laid in state for the population to curse his perforated body!
      You cannot rubbish this with a keyboard! Coward!

  13. It is a registered and known fact, that anyone, who opposes the oppression of his own,
    is a bastard. And there are many, in the Southern Cameroon, because of the policy
    or mindset of hospitality.

    • Kumkum Pass Garri

      Ambazombie nyamfukah stupidity on display! Wuna come see yam!

      This nyamfukah calls “anyone who opposes the oppression of his own” a bastard.

      If you oppress Joshua’s child, Joshua will support you!
      If you want Joshua to support you, all you need to do is oppress his relatives and he will support you.

      Joshua is a dumb ambazombie terrorist nyamfukah foolish coward!

      No wonder joshua supports the ambazombie terrorist nyamfukah movement that has been oppressing the people of the NW and SW of Cameron for 4 years now!

      The ambazombies are the most foolish creatures that have ever walked on earth and Joshua is the dumbest of all!

      Joshua is the keeper of the ambazombie nyamfukah lies register.

  14. @Zam-Zam ”You neither know the history of Ouandjie nor that of your country. ”….Am I suppose to know the history of a nonentity,called Ernest Ouandjie who is not my country’s man? How will knowing Ernest Ouandjie,the once terrorist of LRC help me,an Ambasonian? Ernest Ouandjie was a con man,a terrorist,who was going around,terrorising people in his country,trying to force them to accept his ideology.Thats why the population set him up and he was arrested and publicly executed and thrown in a street in Baffoussam. The population started enjoying some peace after the terrorist,Ernest Ouandjie was killed.

    • Kikikiki, Kongosa…is that what your father told you? No wonder you support thieves like Sako, Cho, Ayuk..with such blind eyes.

      A man who doesn’t know his history is like a car without fungeh—that’s why u’re ready to die out of ignorance.

      Do u even know that Ahidjo was against SC joining LRC? He was forced to accept that option by Britain and UN. Of course ignorance would not let ur mov’t dig into history books, for, in their reversed minds, the history of CMR started in Foumban. What a mov’t of dullards!

      Let’s even assume that it started in Foumban! Were SC representatives there kiddies that couldn’t read a doki b4 signing it? Always playing the victim!

      What ve Anglo elites in Etoudi done to raise the Anglo issue? Of course you nyathi past them only to scapegoat the wrong pple…

  16. @Zam-Zam ”One CMR (One Kamerun) didn’t start today, read the history books, kongosa.
    Cameroon is one and indivisible, go tok”….Which of the Cameroon is one and indivisible? LRC or Southern Cameroon?…So,u want to compare a primary school teacher,Ernest Ouandjie,with somebody with a terminal degree like Cho Ayaba? Wonders shall never end….*
    You said u people are going to create vigilante groups to fight Amba..I want to ask u:Is that the solution to the crisis? by creating vigilate groups to fight Amba? Ha ha ha ha…. Of course anglophones can never be manipulated to accept that…If u want to create vigilante groups to protect chiefs,go and bring your francophone brothers to come and do that.No anglophone will be manipulated to accept that…

    • I sh*t on Cho’s degrees…so you really believe those parrots in ur mov’t are Docs?

      There’s no comparison whatsoever to be made between Ouandjie, the school teacher, and Cho, the bald head coxcomb. A Dr. who thinks he can sell crude oil on the streets of London? You know what, late Gen Ivo, first school L. C., is 100000 X more intelligent than that dwarf…

    • “If u want to create vigilante groups to protect chiefs,go and bring your francophone brothers to come and do that”

      Hahahaha, I am now a Francophone…from Ntongtuh to Francophone. Kikikiki, someone even once said I was a Nigerian on this forum. Yes, I am a very proud CMR, proud to be African and of course proud to belong to the black race.

      I know you are a tanned Saxon, lost sheep in the wilderness of history.

      Authentic CMRs are going to send you back to your Anglo-Germano ancestors. You are all a plague to Africa…

  17. @Zam-Zam A country is born,when it accends independence.Yes,LRC was born in 1960.Southern Cammeroon was born in 1961… ”Let’s even assume that it started in Foumban! Were SC representatives there kiddies that couldn’t read a doki b4 signing it? Always playing the victim!”
    Of course,they were not kiddies,they could read and write.Thats why they say the marriage till date,between SC and LRC is illegal….Ahidjo took advantage of the fact that SC did not have a standing army.He brougtt the federal constitution to Foncha and before they could deliberate on it…Ahidjo sent his trrops in SC to secure what he called LRC’s territory….
    There is no trett of union…Please leave our territory..Is it too much to ask?

    • “Of course,they were not kiddies,they could read and write.Thats why they say the marriage till date,between SC and LRC is illegal”

      Agreed! But go to the body that organised the said marriage and lay your case there. FYI, that body is found in New York. If you can’t do that, stop raising dust elsewhere…

  18. @Zam-Zam ”Agreed! But go to the body that organised the said marriage and lay your case there. FYI, that body is found in New York. If you can’t do that, stop raising dust elsewhere”….Wow,so u finally accept that LRC and SC are two different countries…Thats a good start…….kepp it up..

  19. RELOCATED DUE TO LRC AGENTS PROVOCATEURS

    **** TWO MONTHS BALANCE SHEET OF BOKO HARAM IN LRC****

    The military says the terrorist group has.

    * torched 13 schools within the past two months,
    * held at least 200 people for ransom and
    * abducted an unknown number of civilians.

    * MY TAKE *

    Dictator Biya has indeed abandoned the citizens of the Far North region because there is no oil in that region.n . That evil BULU Dictator has relocated all his military to SC because of Ndian oil.
    He started his war in SC without an EXIT STRATEGY, When he realised that the war was UNWINNABLE, UNSTOPPABLE, UNCONTOLLABLE and financially UNSUSTAINABLE, he and his proconsuls in SC started shouting DRP YOUR ARMS OR BE NEUTRALISED.
    Of course, the INVINCIBLE Amba boys will NEVER EVER drop weapons.

  20. From Awing to Muyuka, the people are waking up to the lies of the Amba cult. All the blood suckers in Europe and the US making money (MTTB, TTW, BBT, OOP etc) from the bloodshed can do is scream in audios and type from their holes.

    The Amba cult like most cults will not go down without a fight but when the heads are ripped off, this curse will die its natural death.
