The case for the Southern Cameroons . Tensions we are witnessing between French-speaking and English -speaking cameroonians goes back 60 years ago. The English-speaking believe they have been ruled in an authoritarian , and robbed without given a say . French Cameroon gained its independence on january 1st 1960, under the appellation of La République du Cameroon . Ten months later , the neighbouring Nigeria also gained its own indépendance from Britain , as A Federal Republic . Already detached from Nigeria , the English -speaking Cameroon was also on the verge of gaining its own independence , but were not given any other choice by the british government and United Nations , than between being attached to Nigeria or to French-speaking Cameroon.
