Cameroon 🇨🇲 military terrorists of Biya’s regime gradually packing out of Ambazonia

The LRC Military genocidal forces have packed out of Nwa, Tatum, Elak Oku and Ngie in Momo Division. Within the course of this week, they shall pack out of 15 more locations according to our intelligence from the presidency in Yaoundé :

An insider in the Force leaked to the Scandy Media platform that the multiple deployment of 67 military units to the 42 Sub Divisions of the North West Region is costing the already indebted regime so much money. Another reason advanced is that their long stay in the field is causing internal fights between them. E.g there was a fierce fight among them in Fongum (a village near Wum) in Menchum Division that led to many wounded. In Elak Oku, Tatum, Nwa and Ndop respectively, some Anglophones in the Military totally objected the stealing of goats, cows and chicken. It led to serious quarrels and infighting.

In Elak, Tatum and Nwa some denizens who were winning and dinning with them were seen packing out of Ambazonia too. In Elak some stupid people, 17 in number went to protest to the Colonial DO not to allow the military to leave but it was late. In Nwa, the vigilante group who were cooperating with them have left too. In Tatum, some locals who were cooking for them also left. The Bui Warriors have arrested some people in Tatum who were cooperating with them for investigations. We urge them to respect all Human Rights values during this investigation and gather more intelligence before their release without harm.

Early this morning and to confirm the disapperance of the military, the Bui warriors went to the court, opened places and found no military there, they went to the Kumbo prison but only the warders were found talking inside. Almost all the military sent to Kumbo because of the warrios and the crisis are nowhere to be found.

There is serious confusion at the presidency and quarreling amongst them as those against human rights shall be facing the ICC & ICJ

Yesterday Sunday 24-05-20, we reported the departure of BIR from Jakiri, worthy to note that a similar exercise occured saturday 23-0520 in Nkor Noni still in Bui County after a bloody fight between the BIR & the Army which led to the withdrawal BIRs from Nkor.

We also urge denizens to remain calm because this military pack out is not total as their gendarmerie and police stations are still stationed in these localities.

Barrister Shufai Berinyuy appreciates the prayers, concerns and interventions of all during the mistreatment towards his health

Shufai Berinyuy one of the Nera 10 abducted from Abuja Nigeria 🇳🇬 on the 5th of January 2018 and later illegally extradited Yaoundé Cameroon 🇨🇲 and detained incommunicado for 11 months & later sentenced to live, received one of the inhuman treatments ever:

shey Tatah & Shufai Berinyuy

Shufai was discharged last evening at around 8pm following interventions from many human rights leaders and lawyers:

Today Friday 22-05-20, Shufai was able to communicate to a few loved ones amongst Which was an informant of the Scandy media where he expressed his appreciation to many like the lawyers, Ambazonians, the one soldier that felt pity, the family including Ilaria Allegrozzi:

Shufai narrated his ordeal, stating that he was unconscious when he was taken to the hospital, stating that they told him when he recovered that it was President Sisiku that dressed him up: When SM asked him what actually happened; this is what he had to say :

“Some people say the forty days Lenten fast contributed to drain lot of energy such that when malaria And typoid struck it was deadly to the point of taken to hospital in hypoglycemia of less than 40%.
To make matters worse just when I regained consciousness the minister gave instructions and I was handcuffed to the hospital bed all night with my sister and all family chased out in the veranda. I tried fighting but little energy and the treatment discontinued until I submitted to the torture …”

He went ahead to state that “The article and press release from Human Rights Watch Washington DC Office gives a good summary because they were with a family member communicating and getting updates!!!“

Shufai went further describe the abuse asking “How can you explain someone just coming out of severe diabetic coma being handcuffed to bed while still on drips!!!?
It was when the alarm was blown off that according to Shufai “ The lawyers forced their way into the ward before making their press statement …“

Despite all the wickedness of La Rep citizens and forces there is always one with a human face that is touched by the spirit to assist the little possible : We insisted to know why Shufai has to go through such devastating torture: “That’s the question I put to them or had they got info that I was going to be smuggled out of the place? It’s very scary what happened … But I didn’t just give in to the soldiers. Though the pain was serious after they had handcuffed me to the bed!!! Mosquitoes infested ward became so horrible until one of the female soldiers who had refused being part of rubbish went and brought a bedsheet and covered me from mosquitoes like a corpse.

Former SDF Mayor of Kumbo Mr. Njong Donatus appointed by the CPDM Prime Minister

Former Mayor for Kumbo council who ruled for close to 25 years has been appointed by the CPDM and La Rep’ PM “Deputy National Coordinator of the presidential plan for the reconstruction and development of the North West and South West Region” and shall be entitled to the various benefits provided for by regulations in force:

Mayor njong Donatus


That is a great Nso man whose political party has been humiliated and now enjoying but appointments from the very regime that he fought for years to overthrow : While we do not doubt the competencies of Mr Njong Donatus, we only can conclude that SDF has finally proven itself to be a sub party to CPDM clearly as we can now see the evidences seems in CPDM now appointing strong Southern Cameroonians whose positions were snatched because of the failure to listen to the Ambazonians calls for boycott etc :
In the days ahead, others like Mbah Ndam etc who took the risks to go to the field for the rerun and still failed shall be benefiting like Mayor Njong: while we respect his choice to join La Rep; we wish him well for he was considered one of the icons of Nso who stood for the people but as the saying goes, time tells .

Although we have not contacted Mr Njong to know if he is aware and has confirmed the appointment , we also have not seen any disclaimer from him and as such might has made his choice as an enabler .

The appointment did not state if SDF has joint the government directly or if the Mayor and those appointed has crossed carpet : Again only time will tell.

Why and how Sehm Mbinglo I emerged Nso Fon in 1993

The Paramount Fon Of Nso

The enthronement machinations that led to the rise of Sehm Mbinglo I to the Nso throne are no secret to the Nso people again. As one whose father, Taa wo Faanjang, was one of the key actors in the enthronement Council, and having taken to myself to follow up keenly the intricacies that were involved, I recorded the following as the machinations that bedeviled the process:

-The sudden and unexpected “disappearance” of Fon Ngah Bi’fon III left the King makers and the Nso people quite confused as to the choice of the successor. This came from the fact that the Nso succession practice does not permit the throne to be vacant for more than a day. It should be noted that Fon Ngah Bi’fon III hours before his disappearance in the night was seen around town in his car doing his usual transactions. It was therefore in shock that the Nso people Rose to the sound of the “Ngem” announcing that the Nso Sun had set. This announcement set the King makers the more in confusion.

That was when the enthronement machinations started as potential candidates and their supporters entered into conclaves to design strategies to cause their choices to be accepted. 

Among the potential princes were Shey Kee from Mantum, Lawyer Gabriel Mbinglo, Shey Ayori and Prince Patrick Mbinkar Fondzeyuf. Of these Princes, the ones with political and financial backing were Shey Kee and Lawyer Mbinglo. Shey Kee had the backing from business and political gurus like Shey Isaac Lukong whose position was implicitly that of the Administration and Government. He was equally backed by Shufaay Ndzeendzev. Shey Kee was described as the CPDM choice. Understanding the political mindset of the Nso people in the early 90s with the prevailing political atmosphere in Cameroon as a whole and the Northwest Region in particular, coupled with the “hatred” against the militants of the party, it was logical that Shey Kee’s camp had to work extra-hard to succeed. The arrival of Sultan Ibrahim Mbombo Njoya, added to the suspicion that a CPDM candidate was going to be imposed on the Nso people, reason why the resistance became stiff.

Lawyer Mbinglo had a similar had his own support as well in Shufaay Ndzeendzev but not from the Administration or ruling party, because he was a noted militant of the SDF. Even as SDF, he could not have the support of Nwerong because he openly supported the Ngiri against Nwerong during the 1989 Mbor Crisis. According to one of the King Makers this researcher spoke with, Lawyer Mbinglo lost the trust of Nwerong on the day the Nchelav pursued Yeengiri to Squares and removed the Mbor (the emollient leaf) from the heads of the Ngang se Ngiri who were wearing them to Meluf to initiate a new member. Nwerong claim the Mbor leaf is their sole prerogative. On this day, after the Nchelav had completed the act and left for the Palace, Lawyer Mbinglo who was sitting in front of “Atlantic Photos Studio” at Squares got into the next Bar, (Sala’s Bar) and bought crates of beer for Yeengiri. That to Nwerong was considered as complicity with Ngiri against Nwerong. His candidature could not therefore pass without Nwerong’s support.

On his part, Shey Ayori who was lobbying for support in Faanjang, even in the absence of Taa woo Faanjang, who was in the Palace, was not a popular candidate. According to the same source, Shey was not popular because he was not a generous man. Many condemned that weakness in him and wrote him off the list of potential candidates.

Lastly, there was Prince Fondzeyuf Patrick, who was so popular among the commonest Nso man for his social interaction and remarkable generosity out of very little he had. Apart from that he was noted for his sympathy towards any afflicted and suffering. Prince Fondzeyuf equally enjoyed a 100% support from Nwerong, and aTaanto for:

-his unwavering support for Nwerong during the Mbor Crisis during which he was stoned in the Ngiri santum causing to lose a tooth for supporting Nwerong.

For mastering and promoting the culture of the Nso people and for his respectful nature towards the traditional instructions and those who incarnate them.

From another perspective, Prince Fondzeyuf was at the time a strong grassroots militant of the SDF and understanding the popular sway at the time, even among a majority of the King Makers, the probability of him going through was very high.

Above all, the voice of the gods through the Nso Mntar had him as their choice as reported from the messages brought back. It should however be noted that in 1983, when Ngah Bi’fon III was enthroned, Prince Fondzeyuf was seized and enstooled as Faay Taawong but he rejected the post with the pronouncement that he was destined for a higher position (Fonship)than that


Many who knew his background very well agreed that the position of Taawong for him was a calculated attempt to disrupt his future greatness. When therefore he was chosen, many did not doubt, though few were those who were expecting him during the machinations process.

It was during all these machinations that Nwerong stepped in and seized him, enthroned him in the Nwerong santum and then announced to the world that the Nso Sun had reason before the other King Makers and the other lobbying camps discovered they had been beaten. 

It was in the aftermath of the Nwerong act that resistance from Ndzeendzev, aTaawong and Ayiywong, and others that a stalemate arose as the New Fon stayed with Nwerong while the Nwerong ritualistic music resounded throughout that night.

Following this unexpected turn of events, the wisdom of the Sultan Ibrahim Mbombo Njoya, played a great role in the mediation. It was thanks to this wisdom that peace was reached and the process of enthronement was taken over as tradition demands. 

It should be noted that at the disappearance of the Fon, the Sultan arrived before Midday and took over the running of the Nso Palace before the new Fon was enthroned.

The rise of Sehm Mbinglo I to the Nso throne could be compared but to the rise of Sehm III, (Mbinkar Mbinglo) to the Nso throne. Both Fons were first enthroned by Nwerong before Ndzeendzev and other King Makers came in later. Such procedures challenged and disrupted the established enthronement procedure.
