Mbonge protests against ‘Amba boys’

By TALLA AGHAA
About three villages along the Kumba – Mundemba highways in Mbonge Sub Division, Meme Division South West Region took to the streets Wednesday, March 18, 2020 to say “No” to the presence of Separatist Fighters in their villages.
Reports hold that the entire villages of Small Ekombe, Ekombe Bonji and Kombone took the courage and stood up as one man to say enough is enough to what they described as “amba fools.”
The villagers in their numbers walked through the streets of the village with just one message: “enough is enough with this amba madness in the name of protecting us!”
Led by a quarter head, the villagers with peace plants highlighted the fact that ever since the alleged ‘Amba boys’ ‘besieged’ their villages in the name of the Anglophone struggle, they have never known peace. According to them, they live in constant fear and harassment from the ‘Amba boys’ and that this has been going on now for the past three years.
A denizen from Small Ekombe told The SUN that, they prefer to live with the devil they know “military”, than with the angel they don’t know “separatist fighters”, who he maintained have now become a thorn on their flesh.
It should be noted that these three villages have been the highest hit since the Anglophone crisis began. Most of their villages have been razed to the ground and they keep on giving ‘support’ to the ‘Amba boys’, yet their children can’t go to school and they live in constant fear of the unknown.
The SUN gathered that, following this move by the population, the ‘Amba boys’ allegedly kidnapped the quarter head and killed him days after and equally gave the village town crier snake beatings.
As we went to Press, the villagers had taken an oath to better collaborate with the military and expose the hideouts of ‘Amba boys’ in the villages.
