Ambazonian activist, Tapang Ivo Tanku, has said in a video that separatist fighters should ‘arrest’ renowned Anglophone musicians including Stanley Enow, Magasco, and Tzy Panchak for calling for an end to the conflict in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon.
Calling the musicians “terrorists”, Tapang said any calls for an end to the conflict in Northwest and Southwest is against their mission, that of restoring the independence of Southern Cameroons.
“Any Ambazonian musician, artist, or whoever belonging to Cameroon, be very weary because in the days ahead you could be arrested. I’m calling in particular Stanley Enow, Magasco, Tzy Panchak; and a couple of people who have earmarked for an immediate arrest in Ambazonia.”
The activist made the comments following Nationwide calls from several artists, including those he cited, for the crisis in the English-speaking regions to end, following the killing of seven school children last weekend.
“They are executing what is best known to La Republic du Cameroun as strategies to end an Ambazonia that has it’s right to self-wedetermination,” Tapang said.
Tzy Panchak had lamented the kitchen killings of innocent children in a Facebook post on Monday, calling for an end to “this madness now”.
After government accused separatists of perpetrating the killing of schools children, Communication Minister, Rene Emmanuel Sadi, issued a communique today saying government has arrested one of those who carried out the attack on Mother Francisca International Academy Kumba on Saturday.
But separatist activists had earlier denied involvement in the act which was widely condemned.
