Anglophone separatists insisted they were not Cameroonians as they appeared in military court today.
When asked what their nationalities, each ten of the defendants answered the same:
“I am not a Cameroonian. I am an Ambazonian.”
Ambazonia is the name of the state separatists have been fighting to establish for two years now. Many English speakers accuse the Francophone majority of discrimination.
The 10, including leader Sisiku Ayuk Tabe Julius, are accused of terrorism, secession, civil war and revolution, among other charges.
Their court case today was adjourned because the defence argued that the prosecution were too late to submit a list of witnesses.
It will continue on 10 January.
