The regime in Yaounde has deployed troops to Southern Cameroons as part of a special operation to secure the start of the so-called new academic year. Cameroon Concord News gathered that the operation, which has a 128 days duration is already costing nearly 500 million CFA francs. Our chief correspondent in Yaounde noted that the deployment was carried out in accordance with standing instructions from the French Cameroun dictator, President Paul Biya.
The latest contingent involving 400 gendamerie officers from La Republque du Cameroun, it is said, will add to the 959 men already deployed in all the Southern Cameroons counties to protect schools and the oil refinery in Limbe.
According to a security source, the Francophone measures are precautionary and seem to be reinforced by the discovery in early May of a bunker in the Mbengwi county, which the government claimed was constructed with the support of the Southern Cameroons Governing Council to perpetrate attacks against La Republique’s defense and security forces.
This French Cameroun discovery was made after the arrest on August 2nd of five individuals whose leader, Dasi Alfred Ngyah alias “Sniper”, of Cameroonian origin but holding a Belgian passport, was preparing to take assault on a police barrage, according to statements made by the corrupt Minister of Communication and government spokesman, Issa Tchiroma Bakary.
At a press conference in Yaoundé, the Minister of Communication stated that the same individual had admitted to being a member of Ambazonia and responsible for its military wing known as the Liberation Movement of Southern Cameroon.
Tension has increased in recent days, since the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium announced the intensification of ghost town operations against the Francophone regime in Yaounde and decreed the closure of all educational establishments in Southern Cameroons.
