Suspected Armed Ambazonian Militants Sack Cross River Community, Leave Many Injured

By CrossRiverWatch Admin

Suspected armed Ambazonian militants in Cameroon have reportedly held Belegete Community in Obanliku Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria, captive and left many injured.

Belegete community is a border village between Nigeria and Cameroon within the edges of the Obanliku plateau, the community has no access road or network to communicate to the headquarters in an urgent situation.

According to reliable sources who disclosed to CrossRiverWatch, the armed bandits held the community hostage for over 24 hours without any security intervention.

The sources disclosed that the lack of access road to the border community has restricted the Nigerian Military from intervening in the crisis. The soldiers who can’t access the community are forced to camp at the Obudu Ranch area, pending when they gain access.

“The community has been under siege since yesterday 5th December 2023, the armed Ambazonian militant (bandits) sacked the Belegete community with Arms, shooting sporadically, beating, and cutting some with cutlasses leaving many wounded and some escaped the attack including men, women, and children at large; the situation now is alarming.

“When we heard the report that Ambazonian militia invaded the community we reported to the relevant authorities to come for our aid, while the state Security adviser called the Army Commander to go for the rescued of Nigerian citizens, the soldiers went up to the Ranch, but due to lack of access road all the armies return to their Barracks, reporting that the Local Government Head of Administration (HOLGA) did not provide logistics for them to go.

“While our community has been captured by Ambazonian militia, we are still appealing to the security agencies to recalibrate and mitigate the unbearable situation in our community,” the source told CrossRiverWatch.

Gory pictures show victims sustaining a high degree of injuries while attempting to escape the siege.
