Neighbours at the Metta Quarter, Bamenda where the killing started 23 January, 2021), reveal hearing the kids pleading that they were not Ambazonian forces, but the French Cameroun military wasted no time in sniffing life out of them. Others say the young boys were at an abandoned building smoking cigarettes as they were too young to smoke in front of their elders. Video from the scene shows pool of blood where the kids were shot. The wailing in the neighbourhood was unanimous. The average age was 16. The killing brings to over 10 in two days. Three others were also executed by the same soldiers in Ntamulung Quarter in the same town of Bamenda (24 January, 2021). The three boys were minding their own affairs when the soldiers rounded them up and executed them by firing squad.
The little village of Maumu in British Cameroons has seen a series of French Cameroun massacres in the past few months. what is different in this current massacre is the reason for it. The young military recruits under firm instructions were asked to prove themselves as fit for the killing fields of English Cameroon (Ambazonia). Their test ground was not far from the office of the French Cameroun colonial governor who calls the anglophones (British Cameroonians) dogs. The wailing by the villagers sum up the pain of the family of one of the innocent farmers who received more than 15 bullets from the French Cameroun young recruits on 21 January, 2021. This is not the first time that the said appointed French Cameroun Colonial Governor – Okalia Bilai is sending the French Cameroun Bulubeti militias into the farming village of Maumu. The last time, the same soldiers were on a killing and burning spree in the village (Click here for videos of the burning). The genocide which began in 2016 has claimed more than 23,000 lives.
The shooting was indiscriminate; women, children and men. Shattered bodies, punctured faces from the French-supplied bullets. After tying the hands of others and shooting in the nearby bushes, the arrogant soldiers were non-repentant. “A soldier told us to go check in the bushes nearby for more bodies.” a survivor tells reporters. “He was a good Satan.” she intimated. The French Cameroun soldiers backed by France invaded the farming community of Mautu, near Buea-Limbe in British Cameroon where CAF in the days ahead has scheduled her African Nations Football Championship (CHAN), from January 16 to February 7, 2021. The French Cameroun soldiers invaded Mautu, Southern part of the occupied territory of British Southern Cameroon on Sunday afternoon 10 January, 2020, shooting indiscriminately. “We have counted six bodies now,” a sympathizer narrates. At the end nine were killed with others wounded.
DELIBERATE KILLINGS TO INSTILL FEAR
Inside sources say the invasion and killings is aimed at creating fear within the communities of Fako County where the tournament is scheduled to take place. British Southern Cameroon liberation soldiers who controlled part of the territory have warned teams scheduled to play in the territory to desist or face their war prowess. The massacre in Mautu is not the first, but is coming one month to the massacre of other women and children in the village of Ngarbuh in North West British Cameroon. Read the Ngarbuh details here .Since the genocide began in 2016, more than 23,000 innocent civilians have been killed by the French Cameroun soldiers, backed by France. The founder of genocide watch, Dr. Gregory Stanton has describe the killings as a pure genocide. In addition to the killings, more than 450 villages have been burnt by the soldiers. Below are the gruesome killings in the village of Mautu.
It was widely-shared in their chat groups and became the rallying cry from Africans in America who have seen their countries transformed into a black apartheid system. Their reason in particular was the genocide in British Southern Cameroon, now colonized by French Cameroun and backed by France. This genocide has taken more than 23000 lives. The voters describe Joe Biden’s stand against Apartheid as a cursor to his believe in human rights and dignity, which has been erased by France in its brutal support of French Cameroun killings in the territory. With the appointment of a black woman – Linda Thomas- Greenfield, as UN Ambassador, Africans in America are hoping for a drastic change of western policy against the continent that has been carved into spheres of influence by the greedy colonial masters. The effect of this obnoxious European colonialist policies is reflected on the global black person, hence the appellation of Africa as a shit hole continent and the calling on black law makers in the US to go back to Africa. The immediate hope for Africans in America is for the new administration to immediately end the genocide on the people of English Cameroon (Ambazonia) that are currently being “excoriated” by France and French Cameroun. British Southern Cameroon remains black Africa’s first democracy in the 50s and early 60s, until the UN forced the territory into a union with French Cameroun in 1961, as opposed to full independence as was prescribed by the UN’s own Trusteeship Agreement.
Below is the video:
The biggest human massacres happened in Bafut, of the Northern part of the territory. In total about 75 innocent civilians including breastfeeding mothers were killed by French Cameroun Bulubeti militias under mummified Paul Biya, backed by France. A reporter describe the carnage thus: “Shattered skulls, perforated eyes, mangled bodies, hollow necks and stomachs from the French Cameroun military bullets. Leaking milk from shattered breasts of breastfeeding mothers. The penetrations and chasms depict the closeness of the weaponry. Sounds like a natural disaster, but NO. It is man-made, masterminded by France and the UN.” details here. In Mbiame, still in the northern part of the territory, two brothers arrested were killed and dumped. The two brothers were kidnapped by the French Cameroun soldiers as they went about their activities in the village of Mbiame, Northern part of British Southern Cameroon. As the villagers got up on 13 December, 2020, the bodies of the two brothers had been killed and dumped in a bush for the family pain. Adamou Taf and his brother, Mumini….Details here. In Ekondo Titi, French Cameroun’s window-dressing Prime Minister, not only were the soldiers on a killing spree, they also torched village houses. The most gruesome acts which smacks of international law was the execution of two innocent civilians in a hospital in Bambui, on 26 December, 2020. Lum Janet cheated death when she was kidnapped by the French Cameroun soldiers at her residence in Nkwen on 17 December, 2020. Her crime was that her younger sister had fathered a child with a dead Ambazonia soldier. She was tortured and minutes to be executed, when someone from somewhere saved her life with a phone call. read her chilling story here. In Akwaya , seven innocent Kids were executed by French Cameroun soldiers as they came back for food after being deliberately abandoned by the UN Refugee Agency. An eye witness reports: On the morning of Thursday, November 26, 2020, seven innocent young boys were on their way to the village of Ehembado, carrying on their heads jute bags containing cocoa beans for some traders. At the outskirts of Mavas, they fell into a military ambush. Many believe this targeting of refugees is engineered by French Cameroun in order to coerce their return to their villages most of which have been burnt by French Cameroun authorities and soldiers.
Below are some of the images and stories of the killed. Details in our next publication

“They didn’t mince their words, after overnight torture in which my hands were tied to my feet. They told me that they will go shoot me and dump where they dump others at Akum, and nothing will happen.” Lum Janet narrates her ordeal in the hands of the French Cameroun Bulubeti militias after they stormed her refugee home at Mile 5 Nkwen, Bamenda, British Cameroon on 17 December, 2020 and kidnapped her. Her crime was that her younger sister has a child with a “dead” Ambazonia soldier about 27 years ago. The civil War turn genocide in British Cameroon began in 2016. “The only time I was given breathing space was when they will untie me to go use the restroom. They beat me with machetes, iron rods and belts.” The bedridden woman narrates. “They had taken me to go and kill and dump as they do others, when half way a phone call came from someone. They turn around and I could hear them saying that they have not beaten me. You can see my body. My hand here is shattered, you can feel and here the noise of the cracking bones” The traumatized lady explains. They later accused me of cooking food for Amazonia soldiers. “I told them that I know no soldiers and that I was homeless and begging this home, but they say I was lying.” She weeps through her pains. “If the woman who told us is brought here to testify know that, you will be finished” The French Cameroun soldiers bullied “as they hit me with the cutlasses etc.” She was finally let go after coughing out $1000 (500,000) as freedom bond.
Lum Janet’s story captures the reason the people of British Southern Cameroon rose as one man in 2016 to demand a return to their status of union in 1961 as two equal states and systems. The English system of justice – Common Law presumes a person innocent until proven guilty, but in the French/Napoleonic or Civil Law system you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent. Still battling with her pain, Lum Janet says her life is definitely in danger, but she is just telling the truth of her pain. His deaf son had earlier been beaten too with a fractured hand by the French Cameroun Soldiers claiming he was an Ambazonian soldier and pretending. Read his story here.
“Article 5 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Signatories of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and the Additional Protocols I and II of 8 June 1977 officially agree not to torture captured persons in armed conflicts, whether international or internal. Torture is also prohibited for the signatories of the United Nations Convention Against Torture, which has 163 state parties.” The UN and Guterres don’t care whether French Cameroun violates these international agreements or not. Below is the chilling video of the evidence of her torture, even though denied by the French Cameroun Colonial Soldiers.
Come to think of the silent pain and frustration he went through. Pause for a moment to ask yourself, if you were in his shoe, what would you have thought as you saw their lips moving as the whip keep descending on you like a lazy donkey. Think of the agony of his arm being shattered as the French Cameroun soldiers smashed and kicked him. Some intentionally and repeatedly jumped on his arms threatening him in the colonial French Cameroun language, “tu dois parler, pretendant” (you must speak pretender). That was the fate of deaf Chenwi, in Bambui, British Southern Cameroon. Those who live in the area know him so well, that he has been deaf since birth. When the French Cameroun Colonial bulubeti militias kidnapped the good-looking handicap, as usual they started beating him asking him to talk. As he remained mute, they increased their beating intensity claiming he was pretending.
At their colonial barracks, their miracle to make him confess, that he was a pretender through torture did not work out. Even after fracturing his arm and ribs, with their torture-healing miracle, the deaf Chenwi could not still speak, but moan and moan at the pain. Exhausted of their action, Chenwi was later abandoned for the family to incur medical expenses. As this torture on her son was not enough, the mother Mangie Janet was on the 18 December, 2020 picked up at her refugee home in Nkwen, Bamenda and well-tortured claiming her younger sister had a female child with one “dead” Ambazonia Restoration Force member 27 years ago. It should be remembered that Mummified Paul Biya declared the civil war in late 2017. Read her story here. The conflict which has now killed more than 23,000 has seen innocent handicaps killed as the French Cameroun Soldiers continue their ethnic cleansing of the minority English-speaking people of the former British Southern Cameroons.

She had earlier left her business in Bambui after French Cameroun Colonial soldiers tortured his deaf son, Chenwi. The French Cameroun colonial officers claim he was pretending that he was a handicap. Chenwi was born deaf. He was left with broken arms and ribs. In order to save his life, Mrs. Janet Lum, temporarily re-located to Yaunde. After consistent deception that normalcy has returned to Bamenda, Mangie Lum Janet returned and since she had lost everything including her home, a good Samaritan provided shelter for her at Mile 5, Nkwen, Bamenda.
On 18 December, 2020, French Cameroun Colonial Officers stormed her borrowed home and kidnapped her to their station, where she has been undergoing torture. Family members say she is being accused of knowing a certain Alhadji whom they say is married to her younger sister. A bogus claim as the said dead Alhaji whom French Cameroun authorities had claimed they deleted of late had fathered a child with Janet’s younger sister more than 27 years ago. The said Alhadji family members say fathered a child and abandoned to the family. “He never supported us for these years, only for our sister to be beaten and locked up for something that happened before this crisis”, a weeping family member narrates. To up the cash demand from the family, the French Cameroun Colonial soldiers also claim she prepares food for Ambazonian Restoration forces and take to them in the bushes. A fat lie one family member describes. After continuous torture all night breaking 19 December,2020, the said French Cameroun soldiers are now demanding for a bribe of 2 million cfa ($4000) for her temporal freedom. Please help save Mangie Lum Janet’s Life. Send to the Presbyterian Churnch Authorities in the territory as she is a strong member.
The two brothers were kidnapped by the French Cameroun soldiers as they went about their activities in the village of Mbiame, Northern part of British Southern Cameroon. As the villagers got up on 13 December, 2020, the bodies of the two brothers had been killed and dumped in a bush for the family pain. Adamou Taf and his brother, Mumini were local business operators. Extra-judicial killings is the new normal in British Southern Cameroon. The lives of the people depend on the colonial French Cameroun soldiers and authorities, who reserve the right to kill, maim, rape, molest and burn homes and villages of any person they wish.
Still on the 13 December, 2020, in Bamenda, another innocent civilian was killed and dumped in a pond in the Foncha Street neighborhood, by the same French Cameroun soldiers.Emmanuel Akenji picked was picked up by French Cameroun terrorists military three days earlier. Since the start of the genocide in 2016, more than 23000 have been killed by these soldiers that are now being called occupying forces. Citizens of the once autonomous territory continue to call on the UN and Great Britain to correct the errors they made in 1961, by attaching the territory to French Cameroun in violation of the Trusteeship Council stipulations, which was to prepare the Trust Territories to self-rule. Of late, the extra-judicial killings by the French Cameroun Soldiers which run afoul international law has been astounding. Recently, two other innocent civilians were executed by the soldiers after displaying them alive on camera, in the county of Lebialem (click here for details).
Shattered skulls, perforated eyes, mangled bodies, hollow necks and stomachs from the French Cameroun military bullets. Leaking milk from shattered breasts of breastfeeding mothers. The penetrations and chasms depict the closeness of the weaponry. Sounds like a natural disaster, but NO. It is man-made, masterminded by France and the UN. With no forensics, dismembered faces and the dug-up bodies buried in mass graves by these French Cameroun soldiers mean the families will live with the trauma forever. They are mostly young men and women, massacred because they are English-speaking by French Cameroun soldiers backed by France prior to the sham indirect election of 6 December, 2020 in the occupied territory of British Southern Cameroon. It was a farce electoral process that Dr. Christopher Fomunyoh, of the National Democratic Institute calls a SELECTION as loyalist of Africa’s oldest and most brutal dictator – mummified Paul Biya are carefully chosen and imposed on the people, who have said NO to anything from French Cameroun and France. These massacres and extra-judicial killings have been going on since 2016. Some are carefully executed on eves of such elections to instill fear in the people, who have rejected French Cameroun in all shapes, forms and manners.
GLOBAL LIP SERVICE: Lip service has enabled this genocide in the face of the world in an era where information is supposed to be king; where alert systems have predicted earth quakes, tornadoes and Tsunamis from killing millions. In the case of the English-speaking people of British Cameroon, the world has stood mute, even with the abundance of daily images and videos of the daily massacres put on their table, thanks to social media. Powerful global leaders from UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, U.S President Donald Trump, former President Obama, British PM Theresa May to Boris Johnson, Russian President Vladimir Putin to even Rwandan Genocide savior Paul Kagame have received calls and images to help end this genocide. None has acted. Baffling is Paul Kagame, whose genocide he commemorates every year. The Former U.S Ambassador to Cameroun Henry Balerin since 2018 described it as “Targeted Killing of the minority English-speaking people, by Africa’s most brutal dictator Paul Biya. Dr. Gregory Stanton, the best mind on genocide of Genocide Watch has stated categorically that what is happening in British Cameroon is GENOCIDE. He is no push over. He was the sole voice in the Clinton State Department to state emphatically that what was happening in Rwanda in 1994 was Genocide. The Norwegian Refugee Council calls it, the most neglected conflict in the world. An estimated 23,000 people have been killed with millions displaced internally and externally. Foreign Policy.com recently analyzed the situation of how the French Cameroun regime, backed by France continues to deceive the world and receiving aid in the guise of fighting Boko Haram, meanwhile all is pumped into the English-speaking zones, to ethnically cleanse the resistance to colonization. How much alert can the world still claim they did not get as they claimed in 1994?
A CHANCE FOR AMB. GREENFIELD TO HOLD THE UN ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS GENOCIDE.
Never in the history of the world has a conflict with solutions available and the architects of that conflict still alive like the Queen of England, be allowed to claim so much souls. The genocide is the UN failed decolonization in which as stipulated by the UN-Trusteeship Council, all the Trust Territories were to be prepared for full independence. The British as usual set up this genocide of its own Trust Territories by violating the Trusteeship Mandate and attaching her own territories to completely new and culturally different systems. Somaliland is another example. Eritrea lost blood to free herself from Ethiopia. Thousands have died in British Cameroon for the same reason that Eritreans died for – The desire to maintain its cultural uniqueness. British Southern Cameroon was Black Africa’s first Democracy, organizing peaceful transfer of power in the 50s, before being forced into a Union with an independent French Cameroun in 1961 as two equals. This has not worked thus the genocide today, because the once autonomous thriving Anglo-Saxon country finds itself absorbed into a larger French culture engineered by France in a policy of forced assimilation and recolonization. One would have thought that, the UN and especially the UK government would have learnt from the bitter conflict pitting Eritrea vs Ethiopia, Somaliland vs Somalia but NO. The UK’s economic interest – British Cameroon’s offshore oil wells are more important than the right to life of the citizens of the territory. She has stood by and pumping in more money to the genocidal French Cameroun colonial regime to annihilate her way to safeguarding these oil deposits. (click here for evidence). The Trump Administration ended trade privilege under AGOA for French Cameroun citing questionable human rights records, but the other European ALLIES stayed mute begging the question of “how many human rights standards are there in the world?”
Amb. Greenfield you have a unique opportunity to challenge these western allies who disregard human rights of black people for their economic interest. Don’t allow we are DEEPLY CONCERNED be your solution to genocide and other abuses. Don’t allow the other members of the UN Security Council to allow this genocide and rampant killings in Africa go unattended under the lobbyist mantra of “the region shall be plunged into chaos”. These terms are used only in Black Africa, because they believe, we blacks are savages, hence the words , “shithole”. Yugoslavia never plunged Europe into chaos after it broke up. While the UK – the mastermind of the genocide is busy pulling out of Europe and giving Scotland a choice to stay or quit the UK, she is pretending and allowing genocide to persist in Africa, when the history of British Cameroon is clear that they were forced against their will. Why not their own vote to stop the genocide? Black Africa is waiting to see what policy you will pursue to end this European and Chinese exploitation of the continent of our origin and pride. A continent whose riches and values are exploited by those who call us “shithole”. Color alone is not enough to allay the fears of Africans, after all many black Americans have and still lobbying for African dictators who violate all human rights of their citizens, rig elections, while the people perish daily, to stay and safeguard western interest. Yes America is back with a black woman at the head of an organization that condones abuses by its permanent members. An organization that has outlived its basic principles. We are waiting Amb. Linda Thomas-Greenfield, to hold these European colonialist/neo-colonialist to end the rape of mother Africa. This genocide is staring you in the face, let the Europeans apply the same rules like in Brexit, Scotxit, Yugoslavia etc. THESE BLACK LIVES SHOULD TRULY MATTER
