Capo Daniels, who lives outside the country, says it is a signal to the government in Yaoundé that the situation in the North West and South West regions is returning to normal.
Nine people were killed and many others injured at the Bamenyam market in the Bamboutos division of the West Region last Tuesday 21st November 2023. Armed men on motorbikes also set fire to shops, took away motorbikes and abducted other people.
Separatist leader Capo Daniels claimed responsibility for what the government and local traditional authorities described as terrorist deeds, saying in a video posted online that the attack was “a clear message to the regime in Yaounde, which is creating its own reality by saying things are back to normalcy”.
In the same video, he gives the meaning of the message to the Head of State, who “should understand that if he was imprudent to start this war, he will need courage and love for humanity to decide to support concrete modalities that could lead to substantial negotiations to put an end to this war”. The leader of the separatists goes on to say that “there will be no military victory for Cameroon and the Cameroonian people will continue to pay the price of this reckless war”.
