    Breaking News: 'Ambazonian' president and 6 other separatist leaders arrested in Nigeria!

    As reported by Evelyn Okakwu for Premium Times Nigeria
    Nigerian authorities have arrested leaders of a group leading a separatist movement in neighbouring Cameroon.
    At least seven leaders of the Movement for the independence of Southern Cameroonians were arrested by the State Security Service on Friday in Abuja, several sources told PREMIUM TIMES.
    The group leads a movement for an independent Ambazonia State, which seeks to break away from the domination of the French-speaking Cameroon.
    Most leaders of the movement have since fled to neighbouring countries including Nigeria amidst a clampdown by the central government led by President Paul Biya.
    The seven officials arrested include the leader of the group, Sessekou Ayuk Julius Tabe.
    Others are Nfor Ngala Nfor, Fidelis Che, Henri Kimeng, Cornielius Kwanga, a professor identified as Awasum and a lawyer, Nalowa Bih.
    They were arrested at Nera Hotel in Abuja.
    “They were picked up yesterday by the SSS. They (SSS) came with guns and ammunitions to the hotel when they took them away. They arrived for a meeting of the high command of the leadership of the Ambazonia republic scheduled to hold at the hotel,” our source told Premium Times Nigeria.
