Speaking on Equinoxe Television, a Douala based popular Channel; the legal mind said his pictures are flooding Social Media with Red Cross on his face and an inscription, “Wanted Dead or Alive.” Barrister ACHU Julius, who is the lawyer for the Consortium of Parents which has embarked on a legal battle with the Catholic Church in Bamenda, is claiming the sum of 150.000.000 FCFA as special and general damages for non school resumption. The Consortium of Parents is accusing the Bishops, Principals, Reverend Fathers and Sisters for their role in ensuring that school does not resume basing their arguments on numerous outings by the latter which according to the legal representative were offences and punishable under the Penal Code. Samuel Kleda Reacts, Says Catholic Church Is Innocent Reacting on the accusations, the President of National Episcopal Conference, Archbishop Samuel Kleda said the, “The Catholic Church did not begin the strike and cannot be accused today of preventing students from going to school.” The Archbishop of the Douala Archdiocese wondered why only the Catholic Church when schools have been paralyzed in almost all sectors both in Public, Private and Confessional schools. However His Lordship Samuel Kleda said the Church has no lawyer but will be in Court for Justice to prevail.
