Taraba state government has bemoaned the incursion of Cameroonian troops into Nigeria.

chairman of Kurmi LGA in Taraba state, John Amamzalla, decried the activities of the soldiers from Cameroon.

He disclosed that the soldiers were hounding and intimidating residents of communities in his municipal under the pretext of searching for Ambazonian separatists who are fighting for secession.

Amamzalla said the soldiers have repeatedly stormed Mairogo and Tosso villages.

Just like the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Nigeria, Ambazonia, an English speaking part of Cameroon in southern part of the country is seeking to secede from Cameroon.

In May, IPOB and Ambazonia reached an agreement for the exchange of personnel and weapons.

Amamzalla noted that it’s imperative for the foreign soldiers to go through the right channels in their search for secessionists.

“The residents of Mairogo and Tosso villages are repeatedly being intimidated by Cameroonian soldiers, who claimed they are searching for Ambazonian agitators who fled Cameroon in the heat of their clash and taking refuge in some communities in the area,” The Guardian quoted the chairman to have said.

He said he has visited the affected communities at the behest of Darius Ishaku, Taraba governor, adding that the government is determined to protect lives and property.
