Dreaded Ambazonian ‘General’ No Pity has threatened he will cause “havoc” if Government fails to release his family members whom he says were arrested by soldiers this Tuesday morning.
The dreaded fighter, who controls a separatist base known as Marine Forces located in Ndop, Cameroon’s Northwest Region, says government should “leave my family and face me.”
“I give the government 48 hours and you will start receiving bad news, because I’m going to cause havoc,” he said in an audio voice note circulated on social media platforms early on Tuesday.
Stating that this is not the first time Government is targeting family members of separatist fighters, he said soldiers should free his family and face him.
“At dawn today, August 3, Cameroonian soldiers stormed our compound. they arrested my uncles, aunts, my younger brothers and sisters…,” he said, adding that “that does not move me because I know what to do.”
“I want you to know that, if anything bad happens to my family, I will make you cry more than ever. I will visit Bafoussam, I will visit Douala but I will start from Ndop”.
After launching some of the fiercest attacks against Cameroonian soldiers in the Northwest Region in recent weeks, No Pity says he is solely responsible for his actions and his family has nothing to do with what he has been doing.
“Who told you my parents were the ones who sent me into this fight? They didn’t ask me to fight; It was my decision. Stop chasing Ambazonian fighters’ parents; face the fighters themselves.”
There is yet no official information from the government concerning the arrest of the fighter’s family.
There has been a recent surge in attacks against government forces in the Northwest and Southwest regions, with several soldiers losing their lives in explosives detonated by separatist fighters.
Government also claims to have neutralised several separatist militia, and both sides claim to be winning in a conflict that has left over a million Anglophone Cameroonians displaced with more than 4,000 losing their lives since 2016, according to information from humanitarian groups.
There have been several calls from international bodies for dialogue and ceasefire, including the Catholic Church which opted to mediate in a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
