Archbishop Esua Affair: Ambazonia Interim Gov’t weighs in on kidnapping 0

Fellow Ambazonians,

I bring you revolutionary greetings.

Following the unfortunate abduction of the Arch Bishop of Bamenda, The Most Reverend Cornelius Fontem Esua, on Tuesday the 25th of June 2019 whilst on a journey from Esu to Bamenda, The Interim Government launched an immediate investigation into the incident. Our immediate findings revealed that a group of unidentified men acting in the area without any authority or connection to our self- defence forces were involved. Upon ascertaining these facts, our self-defence teams were immediately instructed to do everything in their power to get him released.

I’m pleased to announce that this very unfortunate incident has come to an end. The Most Reverend Cornelius Fontem Esua is now safe at home in Bamenda.

I want to bring to your attention a recent statement by the Chairman of the SDF, Ni John Fru Ndi. He pointed to the existence and activity of rogue elements sponsored by La Republique du Cameroun in Ambazonia. The fundamental purpose of this infiltration and illegal activity by our enemy is to illegitimise our struggle in the eyes of the world by carrying out illegal and unlawful activities.

We condemn these illegal and unlawful activities in our country strongly.

We reiterate that it’s our duty to defend ourselves against the brutality of La Republique du Cameroun but your Interim Government condemns all acts of abduction and kidnappings in Ambazonia. All groups and self-defence forces defending life and property in the territory of Ambazonia must guard against any actions that our enemy will exploit to paint us to the outside world in a negative light.

I want to thank our brave self-defence forces for their continuous sacrifices in difficult circumstances. With their determination and God’s Blessings, we shall overcome.

God Bless the Federal Republic of Ambazonia
Short Live The Revolution
Long Live the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.
