Omgba Bissogo was an Ewondo ruler who, during the colonial period in Cameroon in 1895, led a rebellion against forces of the German Empire. Omgba Bissogo was head of the Ewondo Mvog Ottou sublineage. Bissogo and his forces surprised the Germans and won their initial skirmishes. However, the Germans responded with a strike on the Mvog Ottou. Bissogo was arrested and imprisoned in the German station at Jaunde (present-day Yaoundé).
