Whether we call it “enforced disappearance” as in legal palance or simply disappearance, hundreds of Ambazonians have suddenly disappeared from friends, family members, and from their Ambazonia neighbourhoods, grabbed and taken to unknown placed by the forces of the government of Cameroun. Their only “crime” has been their exercise of the human right to free speech, freedom of peaceful assembly, and freedom of association in advancing the right to self-determination of the people of Ambazonia. Officials of the Cameroun government have then refused to say where the abductees are. They have either been killed or they are held in communicado in bunkers or underground detention facilities away from the Ambazonia homeland – their fate remains unknown. Cameroun continues to violate their human rights.
The feeling of insecurity that these disappearances create are meant to create terror or fear in Ambazonian communities to force the Ambazonian people to abandon their vision for self-rule in a state of their own.
