Mancho Bibixy was arrested on Wednesday (November 30th) in Bamenda and was released the same day after demands from the populations.
According to Le Messager of Thursday, December 1, 2016, the man who stood in a coffin on November 21 to denounce the bad state of the roads as well as the dirtiness in the city of Bamenda was arrested. Mancho Bibixy, since it was about him, then set fire and blood to the capital of the Northwest, along with several other vandals, before taking refuge “in a safe place.“
Subsequently, in an interview with the national radio station, the Permanent Secretary of the National Security Council, Minister of State for the Presidency of the Republic, Paul Atanga Nji, advised him to go to a police station or a police brigade.
If some people declared that Mancho Bibixy had taken refuge in Nigeria, the fugitive had made an appearance during the march of MPs and Senators of the Social Democratic Front on Monday 28 November 2016 in Bamenda. He had, moreover, been carried in triumph by the present crowd.
Unfortunately, two days later, on 30 November 206, he was arrested and taken into custody. According to the newspaper, his arrest and detention again resulted in a descent of motorcycle drivers and other vandals into the street, barricading the street and burning tires as a discontent. Some supporters stormed the facilities of the regional judicial police department of this city, demanding the immediate and unconditional release of Mancho Bibixy.
It took the descent of the Governor of the Northwest Region and even John Fru Ndi, chairman of the SDF, to calm the ardor of the demonstrators. A few moments later, Mancho Bibixy was released.
