Shey Tatah visits refugees from Southern Cameroons in Nkiri 1&2 Taraba state Nigeria

Scandy media keeps reaching out to our refugees in Nigeria, thanks to the support from its followers, network and sympathizers:

Southern Cameroons has more than 100,000 Refugees in Nigeria, registered and not . The UN and other Organizations have been to some parts and states, yet the case of Taraba state remains still very wanting due to the distance and bad roads as well and the lack of volunteers to get to the borders and fish out some those dying in forests and bushes daily. Shey Tatah Sevidzem of Scandy Media Platform has been to some of these abandoned places with the support and assistance of his followers and network to create more awareness.

We went to one of the most dreaded places Nkiri 1& 2, inacessible with strong hired bikes thanks to support from Caroline M Ayuk, Nkeu Ndum Angafor Wo UK, we also had support from NFU-Bongbati of Denmark, Scandy media followers and fans : a message from Ambazonia front line leaders and IG : These are women in a valley hard to access known as Nkiri 1&2: The distribution took place after training on how the women can take care of themselves: About 95% of these women are from Lus,an outskirt of Nkambe in Donga Mantung County. We are grateful to all who contributed to this event : We intend visiting them again, getting kids to school and please do not hesitate to chip in something to reach out to those we could not: Shey Tatah from Scandy Media platform

CRTV Press Hour on Major National Dialogue

Press Hour 21-09-19
Anchor : Joe Kalabubse
Panelists: Prof Dzekwa Willibroad
Prof. Ngolle Ngolle, Prof. Nsoh Christopher & Mr. Stephen


All gave their appraisal of the president’s speech :
They all welcomed the dialogue called and were worried on how the Anglophone problem will be resolved when those being consulted are those who never admitted the existence of the problem: for Stephen to him it was a conference not a dialogue called: prof Nsoh prays that the dialogue not be politicized referring to the conflicting parties which is the state and Anglophones but Ngolle Ngolle turned it to Anglophone and Francophones which was not what was raised :


Ngolle Ngolle refuting what Nsoh said referred to Somalia as a failed state while Cameroon is not one: As such the head of state with the mandate has the right to do anything as the convener: Ngolle is talking about Cameroon whole Nsoh thinks that all Anglophone front line leaders need to be consulted as well if we mean business: That Anglophones should meet and come out with their grievances than to be swallowed by others: Fir him the time is not enough but hopeful that all should come to find a solution:


Stephen reminded what the president said about the dialogue coming within the framework of the constitution which does not even permit us to go beyond decentralization for now:
Dzegwa and Nsoh would have loved that cease fire and release of Anglophones take place for fairness to take place . Dzegwa is saying he sees a replay of Foumban as the time is too short : He refused that we do not know the problem as they move around talking to people who still do not know the problem even historians who can not lay hands to facts and figures as such the root cause of the problem is what should be handled as he repeats that many consulted do not admit the problem even traditional rulers who have been rejected by their people and more than 70% are Francophones that may crush the anglophone minority:


Ngolle took on role of political parties, who should not play the role like tripartite and Foumban from what he understood by what the president said: The major challenge for him are the participants who should understand that we must all prove that we are honorable citizens with integrity, honest intellectuals and no matter the differences, once the contributions come in, the convener will realize that Cameroonians means business while hoping that some will not make contributions that will tear us apart as we want to move forward together :


Dzegwa contested on the word of founding fires stating that what they decided were also violated :
Scandy media summary

NFU-Bongbati DK reached out to Southern Cameroons Refugees in Nigeria

Gembu- Sardauna LGA Taraba State Nigeria : More than 250 South Cameroonian women refugees assisted in the North of Nigeria by Nso Family Union NFU- Bongbati Denmark

On 24-26 May 2019, NSO Family Union (NFU) Bongbati, diaspora organisation member of ADEPT based in Denmark, provided first hand reusable kits to 250+ refugee women from Southern Cameroons settled in Gembu -Sarduana LGA Taraba state in Nigeria. Implemented in partnership with the ‘Days of Girls’ Nigeria organisation and the ‘Scandy Media’ platform, the action aimed at both, providing refugee women with sanitary pads and reusable kits while training them on how to take care of themselves. Partners used this opportunity to train the Scandy media local team on providing humanitarian response, thus enabling them to extend the action and help more refugees in need in other communities and villages.

More than 100.000 refugees headed to the neighboring Nigeria in search of protection, shelter and security, trying to flee armed conflict and political crisis in Cameroun. Some of them lost their lives in this difficult journey because of hunger, lack of shelter and poor health. Women and children are the most affected by the situation and need special care. The Southern Cameroonian refugees are mainly settled in Taraba state, one of the most remote and insecure regions of the North Nigeria. It is also one of the less assisted and difficult to access locations where Southern Cameroonian refugees suffer from hunger, poor living conditions and lack of access to health services. NFU Bongbati will continue providing humanitarian response to refugee women and call all the diaspora development associations and humanitarian organisations to join the action.

Southern (Cameroonians) Validated restoration of their Independence Oct 1st 2018

Southern Cameroons:

It is no longer news to the republic of Cameroun in particular and to the world at large that, on Monday October 1st 2018, all counties in Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia) took to the streets all over the national territory to commemorate the restoration of their Indepemdence which took place last yeat Oct 2017 but met with the barabric colonial forces that massacred more than 1000 unarmed civilians who went out on the street to celebrate with leaves and peace plants. Yesterday was the validation of that event, as they braced all odds despite La republique’s Governors decree and prefectorial orders that banned movements and activities in the two anglophones regions.

An activitiy that was commorated in all counties surprised even their leaders as they had earlier advised the people of Ambazonia to stay indoors and pray for their independence but the people thirty and hungry for Justice, Freedom and peace took to the streets with peace plants and leaves while other counties like Boyo had a well organized event in a field with a fleet of activities from cultural dances to all forms of displays.

This collective action and determination of the Southern Cameroonians have put to rest the “silly” excuse the regime of Cameroon used to hang on as manipulation of the population. Last year close to 2 million people took to the street for this same celebration but met with all forms of atrocities with more than 150 people shot and killed same same.

This year, the event did not go completely hitch free as the military opened fire in some counties like Kumbo, Mezam, Donga mantung and most regrettably Fako where people were grilled in homes burnt down by the barbaric regime.

The people did not relent despite that the president of the republic of Cameroon while on his campaign visit to Maroua the Far north region of that country promised hell to southern cameroonians, that he will crush them after the elections, a sign that those people do not belong to them as he has refused to dialogue with them. First they called them all sorts of names like terrrorist, rebels, manipulators, armed robbers, state breakers etc and now secessionists.

Bui SDO Simon Emile Mooh should be held responsible for the genocide and atrocities in Kumbo

Kumbo- Nso Bui

For a year now the silence of the SDO for Bui Simon Emile Moh who took over from the peace loving Nzeki Theophile, the man who despite the evil plans and intentions of the regime could still come out and calm the population and speak out on the atrocities with the out going D.O Kamto Francis must come to an end else he be considered the brain behind all the atrocities and genocide in going in Kumbo – Bui and therefore face the tune.

Mooh Emile Simon

Nji Emile Simon Mooh SDO for Bui is notorious for his deliberate silence on the killing of civilians in Kumbo. Since the burning of civilian crops in Tadu, the massacre of kids in Oku, the firing squad meted on civilians in Tayaf and Waiynamah, the burning of homes in Kitiwum and Tadu, the attacks in Mbiame, the killing of 3 members of a family by the military truck, the killing of 8 civilians at Berlem -Dzeng area etc etc…, the SDO has NEVER altered a single word nor explanation.

He and his brutal soldiers have instead join the NWR Governor (Dogvernor) Lele L’Afrique on a stupid campaign asking civilians not to be afraid of the military, not to run when they see them coming…

Lele l’Afrique

On Thursday, a more than 100 soldiers arrived Kumbo on brand new white Toyota Stouts. They went over to Bambui ( a quarter in Kumbo) and did some war games before proceeding to Kumbo Town and started harassing and arresting civilians around Squares. They abducted builders at a construction site and took them to the Brigade and asked them pay a “bail” of 15,000frs each. This the SDO remained mute yet asking the civilians to stay as they are protected. That is the protection he is giving them by conniving with the military to extort money and terrorize the poor  masses.

To make matters worse, yesterday they obstructed the vegetables market women several times as they harassed and abducted any man they saw around Kumbo Central town. Shey Meyo and Shey Kucha were whisked off to the Gendamerie for standing beside his door and for transporting beer to his bar respectively. A bike was chased towards Vebarong for transporting a patient to the hospital! Despite the fact that Kumbo people have been calm ignoring the provocations of the military, this SDO’s silence might be the reason for more atrocities, meaning that he endorses all the actions of the colonial military forces.

Many people have been abducted this weekend and asked to pay “bails” before release. With the regime refusing to dialogue with the people , where do they expect the population to get the money for these ‘bails’ which is what the military uses as allowances to survive.

If the SDO does not take immediate action to stop this, and put the colonial military into book, he shall not only be Booked like other colonial SDOs to the Hague and charged for remaining silent in the face of an organized genocide but face draconian sanctions from the angry population.
