A top French Cameroun judge in Yaounde has issued arrest warrants for the organizers of the massive Southern Cameroons protest that held recently in London precisely at Holland Park. The Biya Francophone regime says Southern Cameroonians in the UK and the USA were responsible for the controversial independence day celebration on October 1 that claimed the lives of dozens of British Southern Cameroons citizens.
A French Cameroun Supreme Court spokesperson told Cameroon Concord News on Wednesday that the warrants had been issued for Barrister Alex Ndive, Kum Engelbert, Tua Fesse Fesse and Kongeh Joseph Wab. We gathered the kangaroo court ruled that the four Southern Cameroonians organized the demonstrations in front of the Cameroon embassy in London in contravention of a ruling by the nation’s higher judicial council which had found the activities of the Southern Cameroons Ambazonia Governing Council unconstitutional and banned its activities.
The Francophone dominated government said on Monday that it has evidence from mobile phone operators that implicates the Cameroon Concord News UK bureau chief, Chi Prudence Asong and Tua Fesse Fesse in the happenings in Buea and Bamenda. The development came a day after 10 Southern Cameroons citizens arrived the Douala International airport from the US and were detained by plain cloth police officers.
The so-called French Cameroun government spokesman and Minister of Communication, Issa Tchiroma Bakary said that the independence day celebration was ruthlessly crushed and severely dealt with by troops loyal to the Biya regime. Human Rights groups including Amnesty International say more than a hundred people were killed.
Sesekou Ayuk Tabe, the head of the Southern Cameroons Governing Council noted that the the October 1 celebration has opened a new chapter in British Southern Cameroons history. During a recent interview in London, Chairman Ayuk Tabe said the Southern Cameroons Governing Council is not seeking confrontation with the French Cameroon government but reiterated the governing council’s position that there was an urgent need for a Southern Cameroons army.
