AMBAZONIANS, TO WIN WE MUST SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE AND STICK TOGETHER LIKE NO ONE EVER GOT ARRESTED OR KILLED.
While I admit how painful it has been for each and every one of us in the past 3 weeks, especially families of our abducted leaders not being able to see or hear from or see our leaders, I am however, comforted to know that our leaders are alive and in with high spirit.
I urge you all to be morally strong and instead increase the pressure on the abductors of our leaders either to charge them with a crime if they committed one or set them free.
From all the audios, videos, writeups, tough questions and brilliant comments we read from all concerned Ambazonians, there should be no doubt again everyone feels the responsibility to fight hard for the release of our leaders falls squarely on our shoulders. All of us.
But no matter how encouraging this could be, we must remind ourselves that it is not every fight you must take to the boxing ring or to social media. Posting our efforts and strategies to secure the release of our leaders on social media will only help the enemy in the boxing ring, Not us.
I'm also a concerned Ambazonian like all of you out there. And even if I'm not your primary sources of information, I know I'm a credible source for information anyone could rely on. Though no one is perfect, the one thing that is perfect about me is that I'm constantly seeking for perfection. And I won't allow you to be mislead.
Remember I'm the one who first dismissed the claim that our leaders were arrested by the DSS and flawn to Yaounde, and set the record straight by stating that the ONSA (Office of National Security Adviser) arrested them and later transferred our leaders to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). Two weeks ago.
Remember also, I'm the one who first break the news to you that our leaders were abducted at the pool side bar of the hotel and their rooms searched for increaminating evidence but nothing was found to nail them.
Today again, I come to you with a message of hope and encouragement that our leaders are alive in Nigeria. No stone is being left unturned to secure their urgent and safe release. And Nigeria will release them.
I am persuaded that many of us out there will feel much better if we could just see some kind of evidence our leaders are alive and in Nigeria. Rest assured everything is being done to let you see something more convincing.
Because of the long silence of the Nigerian Government to officially claim responsibility, it is but normal that some of you started asking tough questions. And you are right to do so but dont only ask the IG, eqully call on Nigeria to release or charge our leaders.
And while you ask those tough questions, be careful at the same time not to fall for stories which are based more on speculation and opinion yet devoid of substantive facts to back them up.
I am confident that if our leaders were killed or extradited, instead of lying to you, you would rather be encouraged to take the fight to who so ever did harm them.
Be firm and persuaded therefore, that our leaders are safe and still in Nigeria for the flowing reasons:
1. Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affaires is not a liar to say they are keeping them.
2. NHCR are not liars to say they are keeping them,
3. certainly our lawyers have not lied to us that they are in Ngeria and safe
4. Certainly, the IG has not lied to us and there exist no reason what so ever for the IG to stage such an expensive lie on a very serious matter like this one.
5. And ofcourse, United Support for Peace have given us verified information that all our leaders are safe and still in Nigeria.
Now all of us should at least have some high level of comfort that even though each of the above named sources work independently of each other, they all agree on the important facts that (a) our leaders are safe and (b) they have not been extradited to Cameroon.
The time to ask questions is over. Now is time to hold accountable those who abducted our leaders. And forcefully demanding Nigeria to either release or charge our leaders (if they committed a crime) after 3 weeks of unexplained detention is our right and it's none negotiable.
Freedom is not governments' gift to the governed. It is God's gift to humanity!
No matter what, we will go to Buea. Never give up and never surrender.
