The forsmer US Ambassador to the United Nations Herman J. Cohen has condemned atrocities committed by Ambazonia separatist fighters in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon.
The US diplomat who has been very vocal on the crisis in the Anglophone regions said violence perpetrated by Ambazonia separatists against villages, homes and civilians must stop.
I sympathize with the determination of anglophone Cameroonians to preserve their culture & way of life, but I must condemn the violence perpetrated by "Ambazonian" separatists against villages, homes and civilians. It is time for a ceasefire and a serious mediated negotiation.
