DEAD OR ALIVE, FIELD MARSHALL WAS NO KEY ACTOR IN THE ANGLOPHONE STRUGGLE AGAIN…

It is therefore difficult to say with certainty that Field Marshall was killed. But if he is, it will not affect the course of the ongoing Ambazonian resistance on the ground, because Field Marshall has not been part of the armed struggle of the people of Southern Cameroons-Ambazonia since last November. Indeed, the Red Dragons leader chose to follow his brother in his unwarranted crusade against the legitimate chairman of the Ambazonian government Samuel Sako Ikome, at the instigation of Colonel Joel Emile Bamkoui, commander of the Military Security Division (SEMIL) and the Biya regime’s barbouze-in-chief.

In an audio that circulated last May, Field Marshall was heard to say that his president is Aya Marienta and that Samuel Sako Ikome should throw in the towel because he is no longer president of the interim government. It was then learned that Field Marshall had abandoned the Ambazonian struggle months ago to devote himself to agriculture. It was also learned that millions of CFA francs had been given to Field Marshall by the interim government of Sako Ikome for the purchase of war materials but he invested this money in his farm.

WHY IT IS NO LONGER IN BIYA’S INTEREST TO KILL FIELD MARSHALL

With Field Marshall dead, the Biya government would lose a major pawn in the pacification of Lebialem, one of the entry points to Southern Cameroons-Ambazonia in the west of the Republic of Cameroon, specifically the Menoua department. In their heyday, the Red Dragons were a lock for the Cameroonian defense forces in this area.
In 2020, when General MAD Dog and General Ayeke (two Ambazonian warlords who had been turned over by the ruling power) were killed, the media close to the Biya regime made a big fuss immediately afterwards. What explains the silence of the same media since yesterday when the news of the death of the dreaded Field Marshall circulated? Even the communication unit of the Ministry of Defense is curiously silent, despite the caliber of the target supposedly hit. Is Yaoundé to blame?

It is not in the interest of the Biya government to kill Field Marshall for fear of angering his brother Chris Anu, whose actions and attacks against the Sako Ikome government over the past several months have been of great benefit to the government in Yaoundé, whose desire to divide the Anglophone independence movement is well known.

FIELD MARSHALL’S DEATH COULD ONLY BE CAUSED BY HIS COMRADES IN ARMS AND THE PEOPLE OF LEBIALEM

If Field Marshall were to die, it could only be his comrades in arms and the local population. According to informed sources, the local people were not happy with Field Marshall’s decision to abandon the struggle and join the Marianta group against Sako Ikome. Many, especially in his stronghold in Menji, saw this as high treason. Marshall also alienated a good number of Red Dragons fighters who wanted to continue the struggle under Sako Ikome’s leadership: “Any fighter who continues to consider Sako Ikome as his president will have only his eyes to cry,” Field Marshall warned in the voice broadcast last May.

Our sources report that Field Marshall has been suffering in recent weeks from a mysterious illness (others say poison) resulting from a curse cast on him by people in the village where he was staying. In a video that has been circulating for a few days, he is seen, thin and red-eyed, sitting on a bench, speaking in the local language with two young men with dull, teary faces, all holding swords. Proof that the king of Lebialem was probably in poor health.
Dead or alive, the Ambazonian struggle has a bright future ahead of it, because for almost a year since Field Marshall put away his weapons, it has not diminished in intensity. On the contrary!
