The following cameo is from the third chapter of a book by Ambazonia Secretary General, reputed gadfly, prolific writer and activist Muluh Mbuh:
Among the many border disputes that Cameroun and Nigeria have had in the years since independence, the Bakassi peninsula stands out very clearly as the most serious dispute of all. This portion of the disputed border draws increasing attention, as it became public knowledge that the peninsula is very rich in petroleum and natural gas. The show of arms, especially in the past seventeen years, has left many dead and wounded. Fighting occurred on the lands surrounding the peninsula, (which are equally disputed), on the peninsula itself, and on the sea. The big question that faces both nations is that of sovereignty over the mineral rich peninsula—and in answering this question, both nations resorted to the use of military force to claim the territory.
