The Struggle for Mastery in the British Southern Cameroons recounts the efforts/challenges of Nigerians and French Cameroonians who “occupied" or settled in the British Southern Cameroons between 1916 and 1961. Sandwiched between Nigeria and the French Administered territory of Cameroon, British Southern Cameroons was considered by both Nigerians and French Cameroonians as their backyard which could be occupied, colonised or annexed at any time. This was so because of the ethnic and historic relations between the two Cameroons which were a German Colony from 1884 to 1916 and also because the British decided to administer British Southern Cameroons as an integral part of Nigeria from 1922 to 1961. This book is focused on the competition, rivalry and diplomatic manoeuvres that characterised relations between the French Cameroon settlers and those from Nigeria as they struggled for the mastery in the Southern Cameroons.
