By Omolade Adegbuyi and Ologeh Joseph Chibu

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been asked to intervene in the continuous detention of six Nigerian University professors by the Cameronian government.

President Paul Biya who has led his poor country for 40 years.
He accused the Nigerian Professors of plotting to overthrow him

President Mohammadu Buhari’s regime had obeyed the request of Biya to transfer the Nigerian Professors to Cameroon in what shocked many overseers at the time.

Biya is known for making such frivolous claims as a way to hunt imaginary foes.

Cameroon is also battling armed groups calling for a separate country of Abazonia.

Apart from the six Nigerian Professors, other Nigerian refugees have also been robbed in in Biya’s imaginary coup.

The Professors called on President Tinubu and the National Assembly to come to their aid.

Their petition had been submitted to the President and the National Assembly.

They said they were illegally abducted and deported from Nigeria on January 5, 2018, to Cameroon, on “frivolous allegations of plotting to destabilize the government of La Republique du Cameroon, LRC, President Mr. Paul Biya.”

They also submitted a petition to the House Committee on Public Petitions through their lawyers

They had earlier approached Nigerian courts which set them free but the orders were not implemented but disregarded by Cameroon.

Their lawyers were by Prof. Carlson Anyangwe, Prof. Chidi Odinkalu, Fru Awah, Abdul Oroh and Mbinkar Singeh

They wrote and want to “Cause the government of Nigeria to institute an urgent action to secure the implementation of Communication 59/2022 of October 14, 2022, of the UN-HRC-WGAD calling for the release of the petitioners. “

They asked the National Assembly to “Cause the Government of Nigeria to take action and implement the rulings in the three judgments of the Federal High Court of Abuja in 2019, ordering the release and compensation of these petitioners.

Other demands were to “Cause Nigeria to leverage on the Abuja 2002, ruling in the case of Kelvin Ngumne et al Vs the FGN, demanding that Nigeria intervenes to resolve the conflict between Southern Cameroons and La Republique du Cameroun and respect for the particular clause of the Green Tree Agreement, which demands that both la Republique du Cameroun and Nigeria retain their boundaries at independence, to pursue the self-determination quest of the Southern Cameroons to its logical conclusion as mandated by the FHC 2002 judgment.

“Cause the Government of Nigeria to take action and urgently initiate proceedings before the ICJ and other international jurisdictions citing la République du Cameroun to be sanctioned for fraudulent misrepresentation during the Bakassi Peninsula case in the ICJ.”

“Cause the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to take its rightful place as “big brother” in African politics and cause the African Union or the United Nations to intervene in the matter between the Southern Cameroons and La Republique du Cameroun or to proceed as mediator and resolve the ongoing conflict and restore peace and stability in the Gulf of Guinea region.”
