AFBA receives a very strong petition from Lead...

Abuja Abductees request for assistance from Afba

The Southern Cameroonians who were abducted from Abuja and detained in a Gendarme underground detention centre in Yaoundé Cameroun request for assistance.  Among the detainees are two members of AfBA. 

The AfBA before now has conducted a very impressive campaign holding Nigeria primarily responsible for this crime and requested Cameroun releases them forthwith since they were under the protection of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees when they were abducted.

Upon the receipt of this request, the Afba has strongly started exerting more pressure once more. The Afba will be issuing a strong statement calling for Nigeria and Cameroun to produce and free them with immediate effect.  Afba with immediate effect will send complaints and engage with the UN High Commission for Refugees in Nigeria, the ECOWAS, AU, UN, and the diplomatic community.

Afba will take legal action at the ECOWAS Court against Nigeria on the matter. This case is highly political and Afba will lead a strong worldwide coalition to put pressure for the release of these captives. In particular, Afba can and will put very strong pressure on the United Nations through the UN High Commission for Refugees in Nigeria for the UNHCR to file a formal complaint against Nigeria and Cameroun at the UN or seek a UN Resolution on the violation of the 1951 UN Refugee Convention and the release of the captives.
