Since Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and his 9 cohorts were arrested in Abuja,Nigeria on Friday the 5th of January, 2018 i.e. 3 weeks ago, the Ambazonia Defence Forces AKA the Amba Tigers have been extremely violent.

From the 5th till today the 25th of January, 2018, we can estimate that atleast 80 LRC Forces have been ambushed and slaughtered in Manyu.

The Amba Tigers have transcended from launching sporadic attacks to lunching constant attacks and from being a defensive force to an offensive force.

Since the 5th of January,2018, the LRC forces in Manyu have been under attack on a daily basis.


We just learnt that today,the 25th of January, 2018, a group of unidentified Gunmen suspected to be members of the Amba Tigers, attacked a border crossing in Ekok, launching their assault from Nigeria, security source witnesses said.

No one was killed, the officials said, but the incident is likely to further damage relations between the neighbors, strained over the rise of an Anglophone Cameroonian separatist movement.


Five security and administrative agents said the unidentified gunmen launched their attack on the Ekok border post along Cross River.

“They came around 3 a.m. (0200 GMT). They came from Nigeria and there were many of them. They had heavy weapons. They had grenades. They were shooting everywhere,” said one police source, who like the other witnesses asked not to be named.
He said the shooting lasted nearly three hours and the border remained closed on Thursday morning.

“We don’t really know how it happened,” a second security source told Reuters. “Some of these guys came from the riverside (beneath the bridge). We don’t know exactly which path they took, but all of them came from Nigeria.”



Government officials in Cameroon haven,t comment on the attack.

Nigeria’s defense ministry spokesman said he was not aware of the incident and referred queries to the military. A Nigerian military spokesman said he was not aware of the attack but would make checks.
