Cameroon: Felix Agbor Balla rejects bail, stands firm on Federalism

The detained leader of the Anglophone Civil Society Consortium, Barrister Felix Agbor Balla has rejected the idea of a conditional release on bail which has been under negotiation for several weeks now.

Agbor Balla’s message is contained in a tweet posted on Monday @maenowtabetrust. “  IT’S OFFICIAL@Free FelixAgborB HAS DENIED BAIL, HE SAYS ONE FOR ALL AND ALL FOR ONE,” the tweet reads.

Barrister Agbor Balla, Fontem Neba, Ayah Paul Abine and several other Anglophone Cameroonians are currently being deprived of liberty in Yaounde, in connection with the unrest in Southern Cameroons.

Recently, the case against Agbor Balla and the 27 others held in a military tribunal in Yaounde was adjourned for June, as the defending team demands a release on bail.

Barrister Balla’s message which has been retweeted  27 times  or so comes as a surprise to many who were hoping for at least a temporary release.
