A manhunt has been launched by a special unit of the police force in the Southwest part of Cameroon to track down and arrest Yitchou Gueyep Cyrille Leolin, Ngalame Thomas, Neba Suh, Ewane Paul, Sone Felix among others all close allies of the erstwhile Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium, CASCS .
This manhunt is coming after the government of Cameroon in on Tuesday, January 17 arrested two leaders of the Anglophone Civil Society Consortium, ACSC, Barrister Nkongho Felix Agbor-Balla and Dr. Fontem Neba in Buea.
After the arrest and detention of these top CASCS executives, the government believes that arresting all those close to the consortium will put an end to the uprising Anglophone Crisis which seems to be gathering so much momentum.
In other to see that the situation is arrested, a manhunt has been initiated to arrest the aforementioned activists above with special emphasis on Yitchou Gueyep who is said to be part of those galvanising the people of Tombel in the Anglophone struggle.
Yitchou Gueyep Cyrille Leolin has narrowly escaped arrests on two occasions with the recent one being that which was carried on March 8,2017 in the early morning hours in Tombel. According to some inside sources in the government, the state is determine to arrest him as they believed that it is only through his arrest and that of others that the situation in Tombel can be calm.
A source at the Special Police branch in the Southwest Regional Headquarters told cameroonnewsline.com that although these activists have been lucky to escape on so many occasions; they are doing everything possible to see that they are apprehended this time so as to set an example to others.
The where about of Yitchou Gueyep Cyrille Leolin and other activists remains a misery as security agents continue their manhunt in their quest to see that the government destabilises the struggle.
What became known today as the Anglophone Crisis began on October 10, 2016 with claims from trade unionists, but it quickly transposed into the political arena.
This was supported by the fact that some fellow compatriots whose confessed purpose was none other than the partition of Cameroon for the most extremists, or the revision of the present form of the State, saw it as a kind of panacea to the issues raised.
