Yaounde Kodengui Maximum Prison

18 Anglophones were transferred yesterday (Monday July 2) from Buea Central Prison to Kondengui Prison, Yaounde. These 18 detainees are currently detained in ‘Kosovo’, a section of Kondengui maximum security prison.

They have been kept in tight chains and were brutally tortured last night by prison guards who repeatedly called them Ambazonians. This prompted a strike action in prison by other Anglophone inmates today. One of them has a decaying wound, another is suffering with a broken arm.

As a result of pressure and the strike action by other Anglophone inmates, the prison registrar said, orders from hierarchy demanded him to keep the detainees in chains for observation.

This is a repeated pattern of treatment upon Southern Cameroonians and alleged separatists, none of their rights are respected, presumption of innocence seems not to exist and authorities act with impunity.
