 Russian Wagner Forces might soon be brought to Fight the Ambazonians…Boris Bertold

This is one of the most delicate subjects that currently opposes a part of the army to the presidency of the Republic. Indeed, in the seraglio, the Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh alias the man with the punk is suspected of wanting to bring to Cameroon the mercenaries of the Russian company Wagner in order to deploy them in the English-speaking zone. The initiative has been ripening for several months and has gradually taken hold after the recent signing of a military cooperation agreement between Cameroon and Russia.

It should already be noted that the BIR and the Russian company WAGNER have been working together for several months. Indeed, some of the Central African minerals exploited by the Russian company Wagner transit through the airports of Yaoundé and Douala via a company housed in the aeronautical authority in charge of airport security and controlled by BIR officers. Thus, the BIR and Wagner have already been in a business relationship for several months.
For Cameroonian army officers, this is an “affront”. Indeed, “even if our troops have sometimes suffered setbacks in the anglophone zone, this does not mean that the Cameroonian army is in difficulty on the ground. Our material superiority has been proven and so far the secessionists have not been able to really control any territory. Why should we want to impose mercenaries on them?” said a commander of the Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR).

What we know for now is that this project is rejected by the Ministry of Defense. This is especially true since it is envisaged that the Wagner soldiers will also be deployed in the Far North. “Although we are against the idea of secession, the Anglophones are our brothers. It is unthinkable that we would accept the deployment of mercenaries against our own brothers,” said another senior officer.

Moreover, the arrival of Wagner could lead to a colossal increase in funds for the war in the Anglophone zone in a context where it has already been established that since 2016, senior army officers and civil servants have enriched themselves under the pretext of buying weapons and maintaining troops.

Our sources confirm that foreigners are already on the ground. For the moment it is not known whether they are Israeli or Russian. But Wagner’s track is clearly on the table. Moreover, the Israeli officials of the BIR in Cameroon, close to the Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic, are not really opposed to the arrival of the Russians.

This is especially true since recent appointments show that the BIR has regained control of security in the anglophone zone. Indeed, two general officers of the BIR have regained control of security in the anglophone zone. They are Housseini Djibo, former assistant to General Sirvan, founder of the BIR, and Bouba Dobékreo, commander of the 5th inter-army military region and former general coordinator of the BIR.

It is not only Cameroonian army officers who are worried about the arrival of the Russians. Western diplomats posted in Yaoundé are also aware of the project around Wagner’s mercenaries in the Anglophone zone. And concerns are growing. “What is certain is that this Wagner affair is only the continuation of a war of succession.
We know that the Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic needs international support.

Since he is not close to the French, he can fall back on the Russians,” says a European Union official in Yaoundé who has had this discussion with European diplomats in Cameroon.
But there is no doubt that it is on the Cameroonian side that anger is rising.

A military command official added: “Given the configuration of the situation on the ground, the arrival of Russian mercenaries will aggravate the situ
ype of behavior Cameroon is exposed to, he recounts that recently at the Maroua Salack airport, mercenaries arrived by plane and were discreetly photographed by an element of military intelligence. It is the lack of culture that makes people do a certain number of things. This type of war is won politically, not militarily.

And to deplore the type of behavior Cameroon is exposed to, he recounts that recently at the Maroua Salack airport, mercenaries arrived by plane and were discreetly photographed by an element of military intelligence. Upon seeing this, the mercenaries surrounded him, snatched his phone, and broke it before giving him money to buy another.
