The Secessionist Leader of the unrecognised Federal Republic of Ambazonia (English speaking side of Cameroon), Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, alongside 9 others, on Tuesday, August 20, were sentenced to life imprisonment by a Military Court, in Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroon.
According to reports, the Leaders were declared guilty of “rebellion, complicity in terrorism, financing of terrorism, revolution, insurrection, hostility against the State, propagation of fake news, and lack of identification”.
Recall, that Mr. Sisiku Tabe and 46 other Separatists had sought refuge in Nigeria, but were detained in Abuja, by the Nigerian government in January 2018, and later deported to Cameroon.
The Defence team disclosed that: “There were irregularities in the proceedings, including the Judge’s biases, but the Military court rejected his evidence.”
The court was reported to have ordered the 10 to pay 1.250 billion FCFA to Cameroon, as damages, and 2.125 billion FCFA to the Civil Party.
