The Pidgin news caster of the Buea based CMTV channel, Samuel Wazizi has been arrested and placed under police custody.
Arrested in connection with the escalating Anglophone crisis hitting Cameroon’s North West and South West regions, reports hold that Samuel Wazizi has been in detention for days now.
He was reportedly picked up by forces of law and order of the Muea 3rd Police District after having been investigated for alleged collaboration with separatist fighters. His working tools are equally reported to having been seized in the process.
According to Cameroon-info.net, the former manager of CMTV, Tah Mai Javis wrote on his Facebook page “He (Wazizi) is one of the best most animative pidgin newscasters in the South West region of Cameroon. Arrested and still in detention…When I was the station manager of CMTV, I worked with him…Today he is behind wires. I don’t know what took him there as of now, but let’s pray for him for God to see him through.
