“If I don’t see my brother again, they themselves shall not see the light of day. This is not the Anglophone course”.

The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) Party in Cameroon was reacting after kidnappers took his brother and two workers into captivity.

Taken in the night of Saturday April 20th around Fru Ndi’s cattle range in Bafut Mezam Division of the North West Region of Cameroon, Kingsley Azeh (brother to Ni John Fru Ndi) and two other workers were in search of stolen cows when they were abducted by unknown individuals. Ni John Fru Ndi has stated.
“The boys are demanding me to pay six million francs cfa or provide five guns as ransom», he adds.
He states that the kidnappers are accusing him of having commissioned elements of the rapid intervention battalion (BIR) to fight them when his residence got burnt months ago.
To Ni John Fru Ndi: “people in high government positions in Cameroon have created and are sponsoring parallel ambazonia fighters that are there to attack, kill and destroy innocent civilians”.
Provoked by the kidnapping of his brother and two workers, Ni John says the activities of the parallel Ambazonia group are contrary to the ambazonia course. “I call on the real ambazonia fighters to be focus and identify armed robbers hired by some members of government to kill the population”.

Material loses:
“In the past six months, I have lost more than one hundred cows. I had forty cows in Babanki village but today just less than eleven are left». According to Ni John Fru Ndi, the cows have been stolen by bandits who present themselves as Ambazonia fighters.
He mentioned his houses set ablaze in his village by persons he suspects are fake fighters sponsored by personalities in power.
Ni John Fru Ndi judging from what he called ‘continuous atrocities’ committed against innocent population by ‘fake amba boys’ warns that famine might soon befall the troubled Anglophone regions of Cameroon.
He laments that the planting season is almost over in Bamenda and other places in the North West with women not given the possibility to cultivate crops as insecurity has become the order of the day.

It is over 2 years now since ghost town phenomenon started in the two restive Anglophone regions, since 2 years, the Mayor of Buea, Ekema Patrick Esunge, waged a ferocious fight against the civil disobedience without success. The Mayor has lamented that the enemies are very close to him, reasons why all efforts have proven futile.

Mr Ekema Patrick said that some in-house persons are involved concluding that not everyone within is for development, ” We have defended so well…some of our people, some of our brothers and sisters will galvanize resources to look for prolific players from a negative end to score goals. But we will remain vigilant to prevent goals from entering our net.” The Mayor told reporters in Buea.

It is over one year since Mr Ekema Patrick promised denizens that ghost town was going to be history. In a move to eliminate the phenomenon, he has carried out several campaigns including sealing of shops, impounding commercial vehicles(Taxis) to no avail.

Ambazonia Separatist fighters have for the past two year been reinforcing ghost towns every Monday Since January 9, 2017, with gunshots and threats of burning shops and cars.

They have on many occasions orchestrated the burning of cars especially around Bunduma in Buea and burning of shops in Mile 17.

Buea, capital of South West region has been worst hit after Bamenda town. A recent lock-down to sabotage the just ended Festival of Arts and Culture in Limbe, affected more than the targeted town.

The much talked about Ambazonia lockdown went into full force today across some cities and villages in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon, sources have confirmed.

As usual, the day has been characterised by exchange of fire between security forces and Ambazonia fighters, local sources report.

In Tiko, at the entrance to the South West region of Cameroon, activities were very timid with very few bikes and taxis moving in the early hours of the morning but picked up steam as the day wore through.

Further at Mutengene, it was rather a mixed atmosphere with a timid pace of activities while a few gunshots were heard around the “quarter rubber” neighbourhood.

In Buea, the entrance of the town was swept in a complete lockdown from Mile 14 through to Molyko as shops remained closed as while the streets remained deserted. However, there was a lease of life further up town as shops were open around Bongo Square right up to Buea Town.

Driving out of Buea, precisely around Muea, there were exchange of fire between security forces and Ambazonia fighters in Liongo village as well as the Wokaka new layout, sources said.

Muyuka was equally on lockdown as gunshots were heard throughout the morning and equally resumed later in the day, our sources said.

Further in Kumba, sources say most parts of the city are locked down compounded by the fact that the town has been in total black out.

In Bamenda, the lockdown was effective in most parts of the city with gunshots heard around Ntaruru though no cit has been quiet for the rest of the day.

In Ndu, sources talk of a dead town following a military operation last night aborted by heavy rains that forced the soldiers to retreat.

In summary, the lockdown was respected in some parts of the North West and South West regions of Cameroon while others went ahead with business as usual.
