Peter Henry Barlerin, Ambassador of the United States of America to Cameroon, has met with some civil society leaders, clergy, organisations and government representatives to chart a peaceful end to crisis that continue to rock Cameroon’s English speaking regions.

During the round-table discussions, one of them, Barrister Agbor Nkongho, President of the Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa, said peace can only return to Cameroon through frank and inclusive dialogue which according to him should start with the release of   Sissiku Ayuk Tabe.

Hear him; “I emphasized that, failure to keep promises made at the Foumban conference is a huge cause for today’s crisis, including extensive social exclusion, social and economic injustice, structurally divided society and political discrimination”.

“To restore peace and calm tensions, Mancho Bibixy, Terence Penn Khan and others facing trial at Military Courts should be released. Ayuk Tabe Julius and 47 others arrested in Nigeria and repatriated to Cameroon should be given access to their lawyers and offered amnesty to participate in dialogue for peace building”.

“An inclusive, reconciliation and cooperative process of dialogue should be initiated with neutral parties to ensure respect of resolutions. Ending the conflict through dialogue will speed up disarmament, return of refugees and internally displaced.”

“It is time to put a permanent end to killings on both sides, violence and suffering upon the innocent civilian population.”
