A Cameroonian separatist group has thrown its weight behind the agitation for Biafra in neighbouring Nigeria, News Express has learnt.

The group, which goes by the name Rufasca and is working for the independence of the people of

Southern Cameroon, has reportedly entered into an alliance with the Biafra Nations Youth League

(BNYL), one of the groups currently campaigning for the resuscitation of Biafra Republic, which

existed from 1967 to 1970 before surrendering to superior federal forces.

“Rufasca is seeking to collaborate with us in the

best interest of the people of Southern
Cameroon otherwise known as Ambazonia,”
BNYL National President, Comrade Prince
Chimezie Obuka, told News Express .
“Rufasca has not only allied with us, but they are

now part of BNYL representing the interest of
Ambazonia. With them in the movement and the
BNYL at large, the Nigerian Government will find
it difficult denying Biafra access to the sea,”

Obuka said.
He disclosed that a Rufasca delegation will
attend the BNYL Congress scheduled to hold on
February 27, 2016 in Ikom, Cross River State.
Comrade Obuka welcomed the alliance with
Rufasca, explaining that the people of Southern
Cameroon and Eastern Nigeria share a common
history.
“The name Ambazonia is gotten from the Ambas
bay in the Bight of Biafra. Southern Cameroon
occupies the largest portion of the Bight of
Biafra. And they equally want to pull out from
Cameroon. We have shared common history as
they were administered alongside Eastern Nigeria
under the NCNC led by Nnamdi Azikiwe. Our last
leakage is Biafra’s coastal line. With the help of

Rufasca, there is hope for the people of
Bakassi,” the BNYL National President stated.
