Ambazonia State: DSS arrests seven Camroonians leading secession agitation

Ambazonia State: DSS arrests seven Camroonians leading secession agitation

It should be recalled that, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, leader of Cameroon's separatist movement, was taken into custody alongside six others at a hotel in Abuja on Friday, both a Nigerian official and the separatist group said.

Cameroonian authorities have issued worldwide arrest warrants for fifteen leaders of the separatist group late past year.

The Movement for the independence of Southern Cameroonians is clamouring for an independent Ambazonia State, which seeks to break away from the domination of the French-speaking Cameroon.

A leading member of a separatist movement in Cameroon has been taken into custody in the capital of neighbouring Nigeria with his aides, sources and secessionists said on Saturday.

The other officials abducted by the gunmen were Dr Nfor Ngala Nfor, Chairman of the Southern Cameroons National Council (SCNC); Dr Fidelis Nde Che; Dr Henry Kimeng; Prof Awasum; Dr Cornelius Kwanga; Mr Tassang Wilfred; Barrister Eyambe Elias; Dr Ojong Okongho; and Barrister Nalowa Bih.

"They were picked up yesterday by the SSS. At around 7:30pm, the gunmen came into the hotel and abducted all of them including the President".

Dozens of people have been killed, including members of the security forces.

Tabe heads the Interim Government of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, after the Anglophone Southern Cameroon declared independence from Republic of Cameroon, which is the francophone part of the country, last year.

In December, a delegation from Mr. Biya was received by Nigeria's Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

The government said at the time that the goal of Mr. Osinbajo's meeting with the Cameroonian delegation, led by the country's minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization, Rene Sadi, was to strengthen diplomatic ties between the two nations.

It also said the meeting was scheduled to discuss the Southern Cameroon's Refugee crisis in Nigeria and to galvanise relief support for housing, medical and feeding in anticipation of the approaching rainy season.

Bilateral relations have been strained by a separatist movement in Cameroon that has clashed with the Cameroonian army and forced thousands to flee violence by travelling across the border to Nigeria. The agency has no known spokesperson.
