Journalists in the South West region have announced a boycott of Prime Minister Philemon Yang’s visit to the region today. Cameroon Concord News was reliably informed that the media gurus and journalists are protesting against the arrest of one of their colleagues, Teke Julius serving with the Cameroon Radio and Television.
The South West reporters revealed that coverage of the Prime Minister’s visit that begins today in Buea will only go ahead if the head of government or the Senior Divisional Officer for Fako issues an open apology and order the immediate release from illegal detention since April the 9th 2016 of Teke Julius.
Nfor Hanson Nchanji, a long standing Cameroonian journalist championing the release of Teke Julius observed that the journalist was arrested on lame and ridiculous reasons that he recorded a conversation of the Prime Minister and a contractor.
