Cameroon: Barrister Fru John Nsoh Speaks Out After Purported Arrest.

Barrister Fru John Nsoh is Lead Counsel for the Sisiku and Co. Case.

Barrister Fru John Nsoh, a Cameroonian lawyer who’s Lead Counsel for Anglophone Pro-Independence Leaders held at the Yaoundé Principal Prison in Kondengui has debunked news of his arrest, Monday, February 25, 2019.

Family members, friends, and colleagues of the Lawyer have also debunked the news, calling it a hoax. Barrister Fru John Nsoh has just recently returned from Yaoundé, Cameroon’s capital, we have been told.  

Barrister Fru told National Telegraph on phone from Douala, the capital city of Cameroon’s Littoral Region he’s doing good and going about his routine chores.

“Yeah! Listen Eric, I left this morning at 8:30 from my house in Bonaberi to my office and after my office, I went to meet a group of lawyers where we had a very heated discussion on the law”, Barrister Fru told National Telegraph’s Editor-in-chief.

The legal mind continued that; “After that, I came back to my office and I came back home.”, he said, adding that he started getting the news when he wanted to read social media.

You know I don’t read social media in the morning when I’m busy, the lawyer opined, stating that it’s at the moment when he got home that he started getting the fake new of his arrest.

I don’t know who’s doing this; the person either has evil intentions or it’s just a mad person, Barrister Fru echoed. Going forward, he said it’s the second time they’re doing it, adding he’s ready for whoever is doing it.

Barrister Fru John Nsoh corroborated an earlier report from National Telegraph, stating; on Thursday, February 21, 2019, they filed a Notice of Appeal at the Yaoundé Military Court that has been hearing the matter of their clients, adding that on Friday, February 22, 2019, a Memorandum and Grounds of Appeal was filed at Court of Appeal of the Centre Region over the same case.

Barrister Fru led a set of lawyers in Cameroon who are defending ten Anglophone leaders from the Cameroon Government to the country’s military court in the capital city of Yaoundé on Wednesday, February 20, 2019.

Sisiku Julius Ayuk Tabe and nine others were abducted in Nigeria on January 5, 2018, are facing terrorism-related charges after being blamed for an armed conflict in the North West and South West of the country.

The fake news of the Lawyer’s kidnap/arrest has spread on social media since the early hours of Monday, February 25, 2019, and it’s suspected to be an old post making rounds.

This is the second time news of his arrest is featuring. In October of 2018, he was said to have been kidnapped but the news was likely confused with that of Barrister Suh Fuh Ben of Amity Chambers in Bamenda who was kidnapped and released during the same period.
