Mbah Raoul is in detention in a police station in Yaounde since Saturday, July 3, 2021. The North West Regional Youth President of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement, CRM, says he was arrested on the instruction of an unidentified individual.
“I and my friend and colleague Fabrice Lena got into a hotel at Biyamasi neighborhood in Yaounde to lodge. We met another customer who was expressing himself in the French language. He started questioning us to identify ourselves. As we told him he had no right to do that to us and other Cameroonians, he got a stick and started beating and brutalizing us. In the course of that, he called policemen and I was arrested while Fabrice Lena succeeded to escape,” Mbah Raoul told Mimi Mefo Info Monday, July 5th, 2021.
On his third day in detention, the member of the National Youth Wing of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement party says the police commissioner has seen no fault in him following the weekend’s incident in the hotel premises. Despite this, at the time of this report, Mbah Raoul is still in detention.
“I think that is how many Anglophones in Yaounde and other places in Cameroon are victimized, arrested, detained, and sometimes killed for nothing. Some civilians consider anglophones as criminals,” he lamented from his detention cell. “I have wounds in my hands and legs just as Fabrice Lena. Since my arrest, I have not received any medical attention,” he added.
According to a reliable source, Fabrice Lena, secretary-general of Popular Action Party-PAP and Mbah Raoul, North West youth president of Cameroon Renaissance Movement party finished a meeting that fateful Saturday, July 3rd, and headed to a hotel to lodge when an individual suspected them of being criminals, brutalized them and later called the police.
