The Mandela Center International has raised worries over the illegal detention of Yaya Sule, a carpenter based in Ndop, North West region of Cameroon.
“According to our sources, he was subjected to acts of torture, degrading, inhumane and cruel treatment and is still being held incommunicado” the center states in its latest statement.
Detained since Wednesday, July 1, 2020, on the premises of the Ndop Public Security Station, the Mandela Center International reveals “he was mistaken for a certain Yaya from Banso who is said to be one of the donors to the separatist armed groups operating in the North West.”
The NGO has also “enjoined the Senior Divisional Officer of Ngohketunjia Division, in Ndop, Mr. Quetong Handerson kongeh to secure Yaya Sule’s release”.
Yaya Sule is one of several victims of the Anglophone crisis that has left thousands dead in Cameroon’s English-speaking regions. The conflict which escalated into an armed bloody conflict has displaced over one million citizens.
