Ambazonian fora have been awash with theories about the rescue of Regina Mundi by LRC’s BIR.
More like theory, for they all speculate that the rescue was staged, a ransom having been paid. There are aspects of the drama, no pun intended, which seem to support that theory.
First the rescue battle took place at night and in the midst of all the confusion of a battle no ADF fighters were lost – luckily
Ms Mundi emerged unscathed and looking fitter and better cared for than Ambazonians in LRC cells. It is fair to guess that ADF has fewer resources to care for prisoners.
ADF, through AgovC, apparently wanted, among others, Sesseku Ayuk Tabe released. That would be a new departure given that AgovC refused to have anything to do with his IG.
Ms Mundi was labelled and treated as an enabler meaning she is an Ambazonian accused of collaboration with the enemy. Yet AgovC proposed and expected to exchange their citizen for others of their citizens with a foreign occupier.
Apparently Ms Mundi was condemned to death before being kept to bargain with.
There are just too many inconsistencies and [lucky] coincidences to discount the prevailing theory among Ambazonians. It could well be a very acute case of inexperience but one thing is now certain. ADF has ground to make to lose the tag they have gained from previous writings of Michel Biem Tong.
Cho Ayaba has magnanimously claimed “responsibility” citing political gains in mitigation. He must be out of touch not to have known the expectations of the sufferers of Ground Zero who expected a measure of revenge for the daily indignities they undergo – and said so in the wake of the drama.
Without further explanation of the “political gains” we have to wonder where they have been made! Is LRC now going to cave to international pressure because they have failed to “handle that episode of the crisis internally”? Paradox. Does the international community now have an incentive to “intervene”? No! International community works on self interest and are more likely to be offering their offices to LRC to talk down future episodes, if indeed any of them took part in this charade.
