Biya prefers dialogue with Boko Haram than with Ambazonians

Cameroon has been troubled by the Nigerian based terrorist group Boko Haram, for quite some time now, even though their disturbances have reduced. The government had tried everything possible to appease them, but they still went on wreaking havoc in the Northern part on Cameroon. According to government estimates, over 1200 Cameroonians, have been killed by the terrorist sect.

 

Some other unfortunate people who found themselves in the Northern Regions of Cameroon got kidnapped and their property looted.

The Cameroonian authorities have had no choice than to beg for negotiations with the Islamist group especially in cases of kidnappings. They had to even go as far as paying billions to the terrorist group for the release of captives they had taken hostage. This was indirectly financing the sect’s activities.

It is getting to a year since the Southern Cameroon crisis started in November 2016. All they wanted was that the government gives them a listening ear. It was dialogue they wanted, since the authorities did not seem to understand what they were demanding.

At that initial stage, nobody was talking about Ambazonia. Southern Cameroonians wanted peaceful and calm negotiations. Now that they have discovered that Biya and his collaborators do not want to cooperate, they want to take full control of their destinies.
