It has emerged from from an online video circulated on social media that the state prosecutor is deliberately stalling the legal trial of the detained anglophone leaders and journalists held at the Yaoundé Kodengui Maximum prison. In the video, Mancho Bibixy seen interviewed with a hidden camara says neither the state prosecutor at the Military tribunal or judicial investigators pressing a case against them have interrogated or questioned them since their arrest last January.

This new revelation  seems to indicate that the state has no case against them and is applying a dilatory tactics to drag the case for as long as possible, hoping to find a solution somewhere in between.

 Mancho Bibixy, in this online video promises to spit venom whenever the courts would decide to question him. Speaking in Pidgin English he said he had known beforehand that he would be arrested because they have tried to do so unsuccessfully eight times before his arrest.

The Anglohone crisis hit top speed on November  21, 2016 when teachers decided to down tools and join striking lawyers to demand for some sweeping changes in the English educational system and when Mancho Bibixy launched his coffin revolution on the same day at the Liberty Square Bamenda.  The rulling CPDM later added more salt to injury when it unsuccessfully tried to hold a mass rally in Bamenda on December 8, 2016, leading to at least four deaths and several others injured. The crisis soon degenerated to general disobedience when the consortium leaders were arrested in January this year, leaving in its wake, a crippling ghost town that continue to paralyses economic activities in the two Anglophone regions.
