The Southern Cameroons Interim Government, IG has launched an online petition project to persuade the United States of America to intervene in the ongoing crisis in the North West and South West regions directly.
The petition requires that President Donald Trump should “Urgently intervene in Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia outside the framework of the United Nation Human Rights Council to stop all the ongoing gross human rights abuses and the mounting humanitarian disaster”.
The intervention ,the petition explains, should be done by “deploying through the UN or unilaterally, a US-Led Peacekeeping Mission as an intervention force charged with imposing a ceasefire and ending the ongoing genocide, ethnic cleansing and targeted elimination of Southern Cameroonians”.
“In less than two years now, over 200,000 refugees and internally displaced Southern Cameroonians/Ambazonians have been registered with several thousand shot dead or abducted and imprisoned incommunicado” the petition notes, warning against what it terms “another Rwanda style genocide”.
Aiming to reach 25000, the petition was launched a few days ago and has had almost 23.500 signatures out of the 25.000 targeted. It is however still uncertain what President Trump’s response will be if the 25000 mark petitions are eventually signed.
The US and other nations gave however maintained that military action will in no way bring the crisis to an end.
