Extradition of Ayuk Tabe and Co: Nigerian government Brought to Justice


Two prominent Nigerian lawyers dragged the Nigerian government to court, accusing it of illegally deporting the leaders of the English-speaking separatist movement, now known as the Ambazonian War of Independence. Lawyers Femi Falana and Abdul Oroh appeared before the Abuja Federal Court of Justice to save the case on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.

The trial, which was adjourned on January 22, 2019, accuses the Nigerian government of illegally deporting refugees and also asking them to pay them compensation and return them to Nigeria. National Telegraph's Collette Okafor in Abuja said the case was adjourned to allow the Falana / Abdul team to file a counter-affidavit after the government filed another affidavit with a barrage of five lawyers.

The President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, HE Sisiku AyukTabe Julius, and his closest aides, were arrested at the Nera Hotel, Abuja, Nigeria, on Friday, January 5, 2018, and then transferred to Yaoundé, Cameroon. what their lawyers have said is unacceptable. The two English-speaking regions of Cameroon are plunged into an armed conflict opposing the majority of its inhabitants to the restoration of the former Cameroon of the British South.

The Cameroonian government accused Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and others of causing chaos and trying to change the shape of the Cameroonian state, but many Intellectual debates on television programs and elsewhere indicated that there were two Cameroon with separate dates of independence, adding that they were two country with one holding each other in something they described as a recolonization. Many now believe that only a referendum can end the crisis.
