Biya’s Belated Amnesty May Not Douse Flaring Tempers, Fru Ndi Warns

The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Front(SDF), Ni John Fru Ndi has asserted that the amnesty granted by President Biya to the detained Anglophone Leaders is a little too late and may not douse the flaring tempers of Anglophones who have suffered the brunt of political highhandedness and military brutality for ten months now.

 

The SDF Chieftain was reacting to the press, a few hours after the presidential decree of August 30, ordering the release of all Anglophones who were arrested in the wake of the Crisis.

Here him: I want to tell Biya that his amnesty is coming a bit too late. I would want to know whether it is unconditional release of all Anglophones, which is what we have requested for nine months. I have the firm belief that when you are fighting with a person and he gives one, take and continue. If that is the case, I will also want to know if the president has also included teachers and lawyers on the run or on exile to come back. Our sigh of relief is in the direction of lawyers and teachers whether they can resume work. Mind you, we the SDF did not call for boycott of schools and courts. The regime should stop further arrests, intimidation and torture of people who request for their rights.
