Ambazonian leaders in the United States on Saturday called for ghost towns in Anglophone regions in Cameroon from September 20 to October 12, and urged Francophones to vacate their territory immediately or have themselves to blame.

In an audio message sent to Today News Africa in Washington DC, Chris Anu, US-based Communication Secretary for the self acclaimed Federal Republic of Ambazonia, issued what he described as a “no movement policy”.

Anu said the “policy directive” banning all movements affects people, cars, motorcycles and any other ground, water or aerial movements between September 20 and October 12.

“The interim government has ordered no movement of persons, of cars, motorbikes, throughout the territory of Ambazonia between the September the 20th through the September the 12th, 2018” he said.

He called on French speaking Cameroonians to vacate Anglophone regions immediately, saying that their security and safety cannot be guaranteed.

Ambazonia is at war, Anu said, warning that those who fail to heed the call may have only themselves to blane, as their safety would not he guaranteed.

He called on Anglophones to get food and water and any other thing they may need during the ghost towns as they would not be able to purchase anything while the region is paralyzed.

Anu said the order banning all movements in the Anglophone regions was to celebrate the first anniversary of their self acclaimed republic and prevent the government from conducting an election there.

The Cameroonian government and Anglophone separatists have been engaged in a running battle since late 2016 when protests for justice and equality snowballed into calls for independence.
