Ambazonia leader, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe writes from detention cell
“In 2016 the people of the Southern Cameroon (Ambazonia) peacefully demanded change.
The Cameroun militia brutally cracked down on peaceful protestors killing dozens, jailed activist, teachers, lawyers, journalists and killed hundreds. Got into homes wreaking havoc, torture and rape.
Since Mr Biya declared war on our people on October 30, 2017, which has degenerated into a genocide, his military & militia has at date killed 27,500 people, burnt 500 villages, caused 120,000 refugees , 1.4million internally displaced persons and he is holding in captivity 3,000 of our compatriots.
My heart bleeds for our people and nation because of the carnage Mr Paul Biya has caused us.
We have to all respond to the call for the restoration of our Independence as that is the only way we can truly be free. It’s either Total Independence or Resistance Forever.
I urge the media, reporters, civil society and humanitarian organizations to continue highlighting the carnage Mr Paul Biya is inflicting daily on our people.
It is in times like these that the truth matters. Remember there has always existed a Southern Cameroons. There has always been TWO(2) Cameroons. There always will be a Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia).
It is in our right to choose freedom over oppression. History is our shadow that we cannot run away from.
I will like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all Southern Cameroonians, Ambazonians & sympathizers who have endured the struggle for our liberation from brutal subjugation by La Repubpic Du Cameroun since it intensified in 2016.
We remain committed to total Independence or resistance forever. Allegiance to the heroes who bore the land with their blood.
Glory To Glory We Rise ”
Still jailed, Sisiku and nine others were arrested in Nigeria’s Nera hotel, extradited to Cameroon and sentenced to life imprisonment on August 20, 2019.
They were fined 250 billion CFA as civil claim to be paid to state coffers as announced by the Yaoundé Military tribunal. The court found them guilty of hostility & destabilising the nation, and has since then kept them in prison.
