A French Cameroun judge whose name we are withholding on Friday last week had a secret meeting with President Paul Biya at the Unity Palace in Yaounde. The meeting took place after that of the members of the so-called Constitutional Council who left the State House with huge envelopes.
The outcome of the meeting is still unknown as there was no communication between the judge and our Unity Palace source. The judge was in the Presidential Villa to take instructions on how to manage the trial of the Interim President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, Sisiku Julius Ayuk Tabe.
Biya had requested a delay to enable the staging of the presidential polls by ELECAM. This was not the first time the same judge would hold such a private meeting with President Biya in Etoudi. The duo met during the trial of Inoni Ephraim, Prof. Titus Edzoa and the release of Lord Justice Ayah Paul.
