Thousands Flee in Cameroon as Separatists Battle for New Nation

 

 

“Fighters who want to form a new country called Ambazonia in the Anglophone area of Cameroon have been locked in bloody battles with the military for months, with accusations of horrific violence on both sides. The fighting has claimed an estimated 400 lives and displaced thousands.”

“Separatists in Anglophone regions have been trying to form a new nation through peaceful channels for decades. The movement turned violent last year in the months after security forces fired on unarmed protesters.“

I am a civil, human and political rights activist. I chose to speak for the ignored and powerless. The Nigerian political scene is a jungle. Print and electronic media are owned by wealthy elites who irrespective of ethnicity and religion suppress public discourse of misgovernance, their political and economic ineptitude which has left Nigeria on it's knees. Ibomtent.com seeks to fix that. That is our aim. That is my life calling and purpose.

    I approve of Southern Cameroon struggle. Their independence is none negotiable. They are fundamentally entitled to it and they must have it.

    I also look forward to a day IBOM PEOPLES REPUBLIC will be independent.
