Despite the pretentious call for a global ceasefire in arm
conflicts by the UN scribe Antonio Gutierrez during the period of the COVID19
emergency, the occupational regime of French Cameroun Republique led by 87
years old dictator Paul Biya, has defied such a call by ramping up its
deployment of heavy artillery and has intensified its massive invasion tactics
in towns and villages in Ambazonia killing scores of civilians, and causing
more havoc in their various communities. AmbaNews24 has learnt from concurring
sources in Bamenda and other towns that heavy motorized artillery vehicles have
been spotted in Bamenda, Bafut and neighboring Alabukam combing the streets and
targeting and destroying local buildings with artillery gunshots in the name of
creating fear and terror in these communities.

This cavalier and predictable attitude of the Yaoundé regime
is the main reason why, the Ambazonian Defense Forces (ADF) which is leading
the freedom and independence quest from the colonial chokehold of La Republique
du Cameroun had warned, and rejected the idea of a unilateral ceasefire against
a French Cameroun regime that it has repeatedly described as ‘morally
bankrupt’. The forces of the ADF, under the leadership of Dr. Cho Ayaba, has
thus continue to ramp up attacks against the positions of the Cameroun military,
attacks that have led to the killing of half a dozen Cameroun military
personnel just in the last two days

Ambazonia Defense Forces Leading the Freedom and Independence Quest for Ambazonia

Earlier this month, over a hundred Cameroun BIR personnel
using these heavy artillery vehicles invaded the historic town of Bafut where a
UNESCO heritage site is located and caused havoc. Within a period of 24 hours,
the entire city was encircled and the raids that followed led to the death of
scores of mostly civilians. Sources within Cameroun’s military had informed
AmbaNews24 that the invasion of Bafut was mostly geared towards sending a message
to Fon Abumbi 11, the paramount King of Bafut who has supported the actions of
his population to stand up against the colonial occupation of their land by the
Cameroun regime. UNESCO has earmarked the Bafut Fon’s Palace as a heritage

Last week, Alabukam a small village about 15km from the city
of Bamenda received the dreaded forces of Cameroun. The village is a strong
hold of the ADF, and they marched into the town with an air of vengeance. ADF
sources who had anticipated this invasion, made a tactical withdrawal of its
troops, and were able to launch a counterattack behind the retreating Cameroun
forces that led to the death of two of their soldiers. In their usual manner,
the Cameroun soldiers during the Alabukam invasion destroyed multiple homes
with the heavy weaponry.

Meanwhile, the Ambazonian Defense Forces (ADF) went out in
full force to confront Cameroun military positions in the city of Bamenda on
May 20th. Sources in Bamenda have confirmed to AmbaNews24 that there
were at least 7 street battles just in the city alone. At least 4 Cameroun
military personnel were confirmed dead from these attacks from the ADF
fighters. The ADF leadership had vowed that the usual May 20th
Cameroun National day was not going to be honored on Ambazonian territory.
Ambazonians currently consider May 20th as the day their enslavement
was officially completed. On May 20th, 1972, Cameroun Republique
held an illegal referendum that officially terminated the federation between
the then Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia) and the French Cameroun Republique.
Ambazonian Critics have since described this as equals to ‘celebration their

In a Facebook reaction to the heavy artillery deployment,
Dr. Cho Ayaba, the leader of the Ambazonia Governing Council (AGOVC), which is
the political wing of the Ambazonia Defense Forces (ADF) said that Cameroun
will be defeated and humiliated in Ambazonia. He called on the Ambazonian
people not to relent their efforts to obtain a free country because according
to him ‘no military can defeat a determined people fighting for the freedom and
the right to their existence’.

Elsewhere, the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs for
the Ambazonia Governing Council (AGOVC) Dr. Larry Ayamba has in a very stern
missive to James Duddridge, the British Minister for Africa objecting to the
recent position insinuated by the Minister to the effect that ‘the UK
recognizes the territorial integrity of Cameroun as manifested by the outcome
of the 1961 plebiscite in the territory of the Southern Cameroons (now
Ambazonia). Foreign Secretary Larry Ayamba frowned at Minister James Duddridge
by insisting that ‘It is also imperative that I correct the dangerous oversight
which insinuates that the outcome of the 1961 plebiscite in the territory of
the Southern Cameroons under United Kingdom Administration established an
immutable fate of the people of Ambazonia’. Ambazonians across the board have
taken aim at the current position of the UK minister, and the general attitude
of the UK government who have been accused of being the main cause of the
current conflict for being the colonial master of the Southern Cameroons
(Ambazonia) under UN Mandate, and who failed woefully to help work out an
acceptable federation agreement between the two neighboring Countries. One
Ambazonian political scientist in the USA called on the British Minister to
shut up on this issue ‘if the UK, could pull out of Brexit for convenience
sake, why must Ambazonia be forced to stay in a relationship that threatens the
extermination of its people under a barbaric Cameroun state’ he concluded.
