The leader of the Ambazonian nation President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and his second in command Comrade Dabney Yerima have in a joint statement called on the Southern Cameroons Self Defense Forces to remain united and focus on meritorious activities with courage and strength.
President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and Vice President Dabney Yerima made the remarks in a message addressed to Southern Cameroons Restoration Forces late on Tuesday.
“On behalf of the founding fathers of our nation; We send our greetings to all the Restoration Forces on Ground 1 and on Ground Zero; May the Almighty God bless you with a successful mission to Buea; remain united and focus on the self defense assignment” the Ambazonia leaders stated in the message.
The Southern Cameroons Self Defense Force was formed on the order of the Ambazonia Interim Government shortly after the proclamation of the independence of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia when the level of barbarism being perpetuated by the Cameroon government military and the Francophone dominated government militias to completely annihilate the Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia) became alarming.
As a result of the on-going genocide in the Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia), an estimated 20,000 people have been killed, over 500 towns and villages have been burnt down, over 120,000 people are seeking refuge in Nigeria and further afield, over 1million people are internally displaced or living in bushes and over 3,000 persons incarcerated in prisons and detention facilities.
Over the past four years, the Southern Cameroons Self Defense Force has successfully defended the Ambazonian nation from attacks by the enemy French Cameroun regime in Yaoundé.
It has also been playing a momentous role in fighting terror created by a pro Cameroon government armed group known as Atanga Nji Boys.
