In a 15-point resolution adopted during the two-day confab, the separatists leaders, including John Mbah Akuro, Dr. Ebenezer Akwanga, Boh Herbert, Prof Januarius Jingwa Asongu, Dr. Sako Samuel, Dr. Fontem Neba, and Ebenezer Akwanga, said the new coalition will henceforth be charged with managing, coordinating and implementing laid down guidelines towards self-determination and independence of “Ambazonia”.

They, however, insisted that such talks will only take place if they were meant to discuss terms of separation.

At least, 437,000 people have also been displaced from Cameroon’s North West and South West regions, according to a document the activists submitted before the UN.
