Jailed separatist leader, Ayuk Tabe has called on the UN to send a fact-finding mission to the village of Mautu in Cameroon’s South West region.
His call comes following the killing of at least ten persons in Mautu, an act that has been blamed on the Cameroon military.
Ayuk Tabe who is currently serving a life sentence at the dreaded Kondengui Principal Prison in Yaounde declared that 10 people were killed.
“Sunday, 10th Jan 2021 will go down as another dark day in the history of our nation. 10 people, including a baby, were massacred in Mautu village in Fako. We condemn these reckless killings. Violence is cowardice. The perpetrators of these acts must be brought to book,” he tweeted.
In another Tweet, he said “early witness accounts from Mautu say that the LRC military has been patrolling the village and its environs, in their trucks. However, on Sunday 10th Jan 2021, they were seen on foot in the bushes and they started the reckless shooting, killing over 10 innocent civilians”.
To him, it is essential for the UN to “… mandate a UNSC Fact-finding mission … to lay bare the truth about the genocide on our people”.
“The world,” he added, “… should remember the #NeverAgainPromise it made after the 1994 Genocide in Rwanda”.
