You have certainly been informed by your Regional Administrative Collaborators of the arrest and detention of 15 Anglophones whom various media organs refer to as Southern Cameroons National Council (SCNC) activists on July 16 2016 in a RESTAURANT in Molyko Buea. No reasons for the arrest were advanced by the Superintendent of Police Roger Nana Ngongang of the Molyko Police station. The activists were arraigned in Buea Magistrate Court on July 27th 2016, refused bail and hearing further adjourned to August 12 2016.
Sirs, you must also be aware that another Anglophone, Maxwell Oben, was arrested in 2014 while he was boarding an URBAN BUS from Buea to Yaounde and has been in detention in the Buea Central Prison.
