Barrister Nkongho Felix Agbor (a.k.a Agbor Balla), Former Legal Adviser to the United Nations Special Mission in Afghanistan and Vice President of the African Bar Association, has said “someday, somehow, some (SCNC) leader will come, who will galvanize the people and when the people will say enough is enough, the centre can no longer hold, there will be nothing than a unitary junta can do.”

Agbor Balla, who made the declaration recently in an interview equally warned the Biya regime against undermining the Southern Cameroons National Council, SCNC.

While stressing that the Southern Cameroons’ independence struggle is a dream that must come to pass, the renowned lawyer expressed discontent over government’s failure to follow the advice of the African Commission, to dialogue with the SCNC, despite SCNC’s belief in the force of argument.

“It is important for you to know that there are many other groups clamouring for the same course. There is the Southern Cameroons’ Youth League which is headed by Akwanga, there is Ambazonia Movement and the Free West Cameroon Movement.


“We have a plethora of them, it’s just that in Cameroon, the SCNC is the one that is more visible, but at the end of the day, all of them are liberation movements,” Balla stated.

He intimated that the problem the liberation movement is facing is lack of some kind of credibility in the eyes of people. He added that the secessionist group is not doing enough groundwork, before disclosing that no liberation group the world over will succeed through the force of argument.
