Multiple reports on social media suggest Cynthia Atangana aka Fiangan has been arrested and detained.
David Eboutou, a renowned civil society activists in Cameroon, has reported that she was being held in the nation’s capital, Yaounde where she is based.
Cynthia came to the limelight months back when videos of her unclad went viral on social media. Many had expressed pity and outrage, of them being leaked.
Weeks later, another set of Cynthia’s pictures again went viral.
This time, she appeared in a video claiming responsibility for her actions, and expressing no remorse for the leaks.
So far, it remains uncertain the charges being levied against her.
However, it is speculated she is going to be charged with public indecency, among other things.
Still, many hold that her arrest and detention will do little or nothing to give her the help she needs, given the nature of the country’s justice system.
