One of the counsels of jailed separatist leader, Ayuk Tabe Julius, Barrister Paddy Yong, abducted two days ago has regained freedom.
Barrister Yong is believed to have been abducted by separatist fighters at the entrance to his compound in Bamenda, Cameroon’s restive North West region.
The man of law was released from the unknown today.
In a video shortly after his release, diaspora separatist leader, Capo Daniel said though the lawyer wasn’t taken by the Ambazonian Defense Forces, ADF, they were right to abduct him.
“He was taken for a legitimate reason … He is not being held for ransom” the separatist kingpin said.
Capo added that, they had reached out to the Common Law Lawyers Association to reveal the reason for the abduction.
This is not the first time separatist fighters or Government forces are abducting or arresting lawyers of the detained separatist leaders.
The lawyers have continued to maintain their neutrality.Most of them have continued to describe what they termed attacks from both parties towards men of the law as victimisation.
