Emmanuel Bwacha, the Senator who represents the Taraba South, has raised the alarm that Nigeria’s territorial sovereignty is under threat following the invasion of Manga community in the Takum Local Government Area of Taraba by Ambazonia separatists from Southern Cameroon.

Coming under a point of order, the lawmaker during commencement of plenary bemoaned the killing of the village head of Manga community and some residents.

He said the invasion of the community by the separatists from neighbouring Cameroon led to the sacking of residents of Manga Village.

According to the lawmaker, Manga is 20 kilometres away from Kashimbilla Dam.

He, therefore, called on the military to immediately swing into action to prevent the eventual occupation of Manga by the separatists.

He said, “I rise to draw the attention of our countrymen and particularly our security agencies to this unfortunate incident which undermines our integrity and sovereignty as a nation.

“Takum Local Government Area houses the 23 Battalion of the Nigerian Army, and so it is my humble submission that the Nigerian Army should rise to the challenge and curb this wanton territorial expansion.

“Their (separatists) motive is yet unknown, whether they want to expand territory or lay claim for Southwest Cameroon is not yet clear.

“As I speak, a number of individuals have gone missing and their whereabouts are yet unknown. The village also is razed down.”

The Senate, thereafter, held a minute silence in honour of those killed by Ambazonia separatists from Southern Cameroon in Manga community.
