Freed Southern Cameroonians Ask for Release of Separatist Leaders

The detainees’ release last week came after Biya ordered charges against them dropped.

Evelyn Ako, a mother of four, says she spent the night with her husband for the first time in 22 months. She says he was arrested in the English-speaking Southwest town of Mamfe and taken to Yaounde.

“With him besides me, we can work harder,” she said. “He used to give me money to support my children but this year, they are in the house. They have not gone to school because of [his absence].
