Ambazonia: 31 secessionist fighters reported lay down their arms

They were received at the North West Regional Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Center in Bamenda, where they are now following the reintegration process.

According to the coordinator of the North-West Regional Center for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) in Bamenda, 25 boys and six girls, a total of 21 ex-separatist militia fighters who spread terror in the southern regions West and North-West of Cameroon, were received in said center. These young people decided to lay down their arms and resume a normal life far from their former companions, who continue to dictate their law in this part of Cameroon. These figures were revealed at the end of the first evaluation conclave of the four months of activities of the DRR, chaired by the Governor of the North-West Region, Adolph Lele Lafrique.

According to Gabsa Nyagha Sistux, the coordinator of this Center, in an interview with Crtv radio, the number of residents increases daily. "We have been informed, that there are still three ex-combatants still in the General Service, that we will be recovering shortly," he explains. This meeting enabled the center not only to draw up its activity report since its creation, but also to present the problems facing the staff. "I appeal to the Regional Community, to everyone, to remobilize behind the Head of State to ask our young people, some of whom are still in the bush, to join the Ddr camp because they will be well received, supervised, trained and no judicial follow-up will disturb their reintegration, "says the governor of this region plagued by a socio-political crisis, known as" anglophone ", for almost three years.

Created on 30 November 2018 by the President of the Republic of Cameroon, Paul Biya, Cnddr's mission is to organize, supervise and manage the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of those who wish to respond positively to the offer. of peace of the Head of State by laying down arms. He is as interested in armed groups in the North-West and South-West regions as in Boko-Haram ex-combatants.
