Acting President of Ambazonia, Ayuk Sisiku Tabe and nine other English-speaking secession leaders were arrested on Friday January 5, 2018 at around 7:30 pm in Nigeria by Cameroonian security forces, according to a statement from Ambazonia.
One wonders how Cameroonian security forces can enter Nigeria, a foreign country, moreover in Abuja the capital, and then make arrests of individuals in a hotel. Very curious and improbable thing, to say the least.
In a press release issued on Jan. 6, the interim government of Ambazonia said that they were “kidnapped” from Nera Hotel Abuja while they were holding a meeting. The interim government of Ambazonia condemns their arrest and demands their immediate release.
It should be recalled that the daily Le Jour of 8 November 2017 indicated that the Cameroonian authorities had issued about fifteen international arrest warrants against the leaders of the Southern Cameroon National Council (SCNC). According to the newspaper, one of the 15 files had been prepared and handed over to the international police in a single phase for the arrest and extradition to Cameroon of the acting president of Ambazonia, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and his followers.
