Mr. John Nsoh, one of the defendants’ lawyers confirmed the transfer of his clients
Since Thursday evening, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, president of the pro-independence interim government of Ambazonia, has been transferred from the illegal military prison of the State Defense Ministry in charge of the Gendarmerie (SED), for the central prison of Kondengui in Yaoundé. The news was confirmed by a source close to Kondengui Prison.
“It was done in the afternoon. They first went before the Government Commissioner at the Yaoundé Military Court before being placed under a detention warrant, “said a security source.
Mr. John Nsoh, one of the defendants’ lawyers confirmed the transfer of his clients, while stating that it was without his knowledge.
A self-proclaimed president of Ambazonia, the name of the independent state that the separatists want to create in English-speaking Cameroon, Ayuk Tabe and 46 other English-speaking activists were arrested in Nigeria and extradited in late January to Cameroon.
Mr. Ayuk Tabe and most other English-speaking activists arrested in Nigeria were the political wing of the Cameroonian separatist movement, advocating negotiation with Yaoundé to arrive for their purposes.
Since the end of 2017, dozens of armed separatists have taken up arms in the two English-speaking regions of North West and South West.
Clashes between the army deployed in large numbers and these separatists, grouped in scattered groups in the equatorial forest, have been happening there almost every day.
According to corroborating sources, armed separatists have been joined by gangs of bandits and looters, who rack up the population and the companies.
