Following the summons of the leaders of the Catholic Church early this week, the Okada boys from the two main towns of the North West region, Bamenda and Kumbo are strongly mobilizing to storm the premises of the Bamenda Court of First Instance on Friday April 21 2017.
According to one of the Bike riders, they cannot sit back while their church leaders are being dragged to court and accused of crimes they did not commit.
“What have our church leaders done to be taken to court?” asks the bike rider. “They were instead the ones praying for this struggle to be resolved peacefully. Because of this summons, we are planning to visit the premises of the court of first instance tomorrow in our numbers to witness it ourselves”.
While pundits fear that the plan of the Okada boys to go out on April 21 may be deadly, others say there are no two ways to address the issue; they say the boys need to show massive support in their parade to up station.
However many have warned against violent protests given the heavy presence of the military in the city of Bamenda.
