The military option

Cameroonians learned this weekend via the media that Paul Biya has authorized the deployment of special forces in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon. These soldiers who are the cream of the Cameroonian army are called upon to lend a hand to their comrades from the BIR and other units who have been trying since 2016 to overcome armed separatist groups.

For the separatist leader Mark Bareta, the sending of special forces to the NOSO is proof of the victory of the separatist groups over the Cameroonian soldiers who lost several men at the front. He reveals that the strength of the Ambazonians does not lie in the military training of the Amba Boys.

“The fact that Cameroon is deploying special forces in Ambazonia is indicative of the victories of Ambazonia fighters, whose cherished BIRs have been reduced to nothing. In Amba, we have no trained forces. We have three things they lack: The will, the people and God,” he posted on his Twitter account.

Paul Biya has always been in favor of the military option for the resolution of the Anglophone crisis. According to sources close to the presidency, members of the government who wish to negotiate with these Cameroonians who have taken up arms are outvoted. Despite the numerous deployments of soldiers in these areas, insecurity is permanent. This week has been particularly deadly at NOSO.
