Muslim scholar Abdulkarim Ali has been abducted in Bamenda. Witnesses describe him being bundled away in an armoured car to Up Station Bamenda on Thursday 11 August 2022.
Concerned Southern Cameroons groups are calling for his immediate and unconditional release given that he has not been charged and has not even been acknowledged. His family were reportedly turned away on Friday 12 August 2022 when they went bring him food.
The personnel claimed ignorance of his whereabouts.
The Cameroun regime is renowned for arbitrary detentions without trial including some really tragic cases.
Though ministers like to recite “etat de droit” and in even occasionally “innocent until proven guilty” the vast majority of detainees in La Republique du Cameroun are held without trial, some for merely being accused of defamation.
