The vociferous Member of Parliament for Jakiri Special Constituency, Hon. Joseph Wirba, has sounded war drums across the entire West Cameroon following the abduction of the leaders of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia in Nigeria.
In a strong worded press release, the MP beseeched the aborigines of the North West and South West Regions to stand up and fight against a looming plague which he aptly described as a ‘systematic attack’ on the people.
The law maker condemned in strong terms the abduction of Sisiku Julius Ayuk Tabe and nine others by “unknown gunmen.”
“The abduction of Comrade Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and nine others at a hotel in Abuja, Nigeria by “unknown” gunmen on January 5, 2018, and who have been held incommunicado for days now and without any official statement from either the Nigerian or Cameroonian Governments is unacceptable and is yet another bitter pill for the people of Southern Cameroons to swallow. We should, as a people, come together to as one man fight these systematic attacks on our people, irrespective of where we stand…make no mistake! We shall not fold our hands and continue to watch our rights being trampled upon,” Wirba stated in the press release.
The lionhearted Wirba wept that the Ambazonian Leaders were rounded up while they were deliberating on how to solve the precarious conditions of thousands of Anglophone refugees fleeing the brutality of the military in the North West and South West Regions most especially in Mamfe, which has metamorphosed in to a war zone.
“The refugees, from my findings, live in very deplorable and inhuman conditions and that becomes a huge problem especially to the women, some of who are pregnant and to young children. The modus operandi of the abductors is not new to many who have for years fought to restore the dignity of the helpless people of Southern Cameroons,” the MP asserted.
In the release, Wirba beseeched the Nigerian and Cameroonian Governments to make public pronouncements on the whereabouts of the abducted leaders and to hasten their immediate and unconditional release.
