Anglophone Crisis: secessionist fighters are surrendering to the authorities, says Paul Atanga Nji, Minister of Territorial Administration '


Are we headed for lull in the Northwest and Southwest regions? The government is very optimistic. Paul Atanga Nji was in Bamenda last weekend for the launch of the electoral campaign of Paul Biya, President and presidential candidate of October 7, 2018. 

The Minister of Territorial Administration took the opportunity to make an important announcement: "I confirm that several terrorists have already laid down their arms. There are several who have come voluntarily, "said Atanga Nji on the antennas of CRTV radio.

The name "terrorist" was given by the government to the secessionist fighters who took weapons. Almost all the abuses (murders, kidnappings, rapes, looting, fires, etc.) are attributed to them. NGOs estimate that more than 300,000 displaced people (internal and external) are affected by the crisis. Instability that has already cost the lives of a hundred policemen, gendarmes and soldiers.

Atanga Nji urge other fighters to lay down their arms, because he says, "they can not afford to fight a state." Will this call be heard by those concerned? Difficult to know when observers agree that the presidential election promises to be high voltage in the English-speaking area.
