Information reaching BaretaNews confirms Hon. Ayah Paul Abine is presently in Yaounde Appeal Court awaiting trail. It should be recalled that Hon. Ayah Paul Abine has been in detention for over three months at the Secretariat of Defence (SED) in Yaounde after several court sessions have been held and adjourned without any concrete verdict arrived at.
While in detention, on several occasions, the Ayah’s family and his defence counsel have appealed to the government of La Republique for his immediate release following his deteriorating health condition but the government authorities turned down all appeals for a bail or eventual release.
Meanwhile, Southern Cameroonians have been calling on the government through various means of communication for the immediate release of Hon. Ayah Paul Abine, Barrister Agbor Balla and Doctor Fontem Neba, Mancho Bibixy, and all other Southern Cameroonians arrested and detained amidst the ongoing crisis.
It should be recalled that the United Nations Secretary General Representative for Central Africa was in Cameroon yesterday 12th April where he granted a press conference and calls for the release of all Southern Cameroonians detained. As Hon. Ayah goes to court, will Biya’s regime release him according to UN instructions?
As of the time of writing, Southern Cameroonians are fingers crossed while hoping for a positive outcome on today’s verdict.
