Ayuk Tabe Sesiku Julius and nine others refused to leave the court room when forces of law and order attempted to stop friends and relatives from greeting them. the request of the detainees was later granted.
Colonel Mem Michel, the presiding judge of the case of Ayuk Tabe Julius and Co was transferred to Buea Military court this week.
