Atanga Nji meets with freed Buea chiefs

JDC | The Minister of Territorial Administration Paul Atanga Nji is this morning granting an audience to the seven Buea traditional rulers who were freed from captivity earlier this week.

The chiefs who arrived Yaounde on Thursday evening alongside other dignitories of the region are about meeting Paul Atanga Nji where they are expected to narrate their ordeal in captivity.

The seven chiefs were released at the start of this week after spending over two weeks in captivity after they were picked up by suspected separatist fighters.

One of the chiefs even died in captivity provoking outrage with the mayor of Buea, Patrick Ekema Esunge organising a march to advocate for the release of seven others but the were released on the eve of the march.

The march however went on as planned taking an anti secession stance with the mayor threatening violence if the Anglophone General Conference holds in Cameroon.
