The crisis in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon dates back to 2016, when Anglophone Cameroonians took to the streets of Southern Cameroon to protest the domination of French in Anglophone courts and schools.
Situation escalated in 2017, when Julius Tabe led secessionist groups, in an attempt to liberate the Southern Cameroon region declared the independence of Ambazonia, resulting in violent clashes between Cameroon military and the separatist fighters.
