Introduction
International human rights law ordains that the will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government. The evidence shows that Cameroun Republic, the former French Cameroun UN Trust Territory that gained independence on 1 January 1960, is in forcible occupation of the British Southern Cameroons, the former UN Trust Territory under British Administration. Firstly, there is no act of union between the two territories. Secondly, there is no international treaty by which the frontiers of independent French Cameroun have been extended from what they we re at the attainment of its independence on 1 January 1960 to now include the territory of the Southern Cameroons. Thirdly, every day the people of the Southern Cameroons reject, by word and conduct, the colonial occupation of their territory by Cameroun Republic and every day they demand the ending of that colonial occupation. Fourthly, there is no respite in Cameroun Republic’s savage ill-treatment of the people of the Southern Cameroons and its wanton plunder of the resources of their territory. Fifthly, it is patent even to the casual observer that the relationship between the Southern Cameroons and Cameroun Republic is that of horse and rider. The colonisation of the Southern Cameroons by Cameroun Republic is thus beyond serious dispute. The authority Cameroun Republic wields in the Southern Cameroons is not by will of the people of the territory. The colonial government of Cameroun Republic parades itself and is assumed by an uninformed section of the international community as having lawful jurisdiction over the Southern Cameroons and its people. But appearances can often be very deceptive. The reality is that Cameroun Republic, by the use of military force, is merely in de facto control of the Southern Cameroons and has so far managed to exact forced submission to its colonial rule only by the application of a deliberate policy of terrorization of the people of the Southern Cameroons. President George W Bush of the USA, speaking a few years ago in connection with the global coalition against individual, group and state terrorism, pertinently observed that an armed gang in a named country hijacked an entire people and has been terrorizing them for the gang’s own selfish ends. That characterization would aptly fit what obtains in the Southern Cameroons. Way back in 1960, some `bad guys`, backed by force, hijacked Cameroun Republic and have held the people of that unfortunate country in terror ever since. Worse, the hijackers moved on to extend their terror structures and armed network to the Southern Cameroons and have equally taken the people and territory of the Southern Cameroons hostage, issuing terroristic commands and exercising a poisoned authority by way of terrorization, brute force and slaughter. The image is that of a handful of fearful cowboys riding into a quiet town, terrorizing its peaceful inhabitants
