We must all together relentlessly ensure the minorities are served Justice” he went on.
To the scholar, “Southern Cameroons deserves Justice as much as the rest of the world”. It is in this same light he says that “I reaffirm my dedication to the the quest for Justice and peace especially for the people of Southern Cameroons. If you all went through all what you did to secure my release, it is because you believe in the principle of peace and my modest contribution to the peace process”.
Furthermore, he added ” I solicit your continual prayers, support and interventions for the thousands of Southern Cameroonians perishing in the jails and cells of Cameroun. Old women, women, men, girls and boys are living in precarious conditions in those horrific confinements”.
