Anglophone Crisis ... “Untouchable” Akere MUNA Enters And Leaves “Lion’s Den”

Ever since the Anglophone struggle began, everyone who entered the ‘Lion’s den’, SED, was arrested. This is not the case with renowed Barrister Akere Muna who arrived SED by 9am and only came out by 2pm. 

It filtered that he was questioned by interrogators his numerous media outings especially an interview granted to Le Jour Newspaper last December 2016 in which it is alleged that he incited secession, rebellion and terrorism.

The summon of Akere MUNA which attracted even international attention was seen by many as a means by the Government to lay hands on one of the Defense Counsel of arrested Anglophone leaders but his coming out has also been seen by observers as a major victory on the part of the legal luminary. Many say it is like the biblical Daniel in the Lion’s Den.

According to Barrister Ngnie Kamga Jackson, President of the Cameroon Bar who accompanied Barrister Akere MUNA, the response he gave were taken down by interrogators and will hand them over to public Commissioners who will decide whether or not to open trial against him. He said, “Enquiries are being opened against Batonnier Muna in the context you know, what is happening in the North West and South West region. You know there are many people charged in Yaoundé for terrorism, secession among others so he has given explanations on two articles he had published on Le Jour Newspaper; one in December and the other in January. He gave his explanations and we were told to leave the office.”

Members of the Cameroon Bar and friends of Barrister Akere MUNA showed up in their numbers to cheer him up. Legal minds came from South West, North West, Littoral, Centre, West and others areas. They also gathered at his Bastos residence after the ‘victory’.

Observers hold that the Government could not have arrested Barrister Akere MUNA because they do not only have little evidence but will have to face the international community more than any other case in Cameroon.
