Security forces have just arrested BBC English Correspondent in Cameroon at the Yaounde Military Tribunal this February 1, 2017 as he joined others to cover the trial of some Anglophone leaders arrested in the wake of Crises rocking the two English speaking regions.

According to some Journalists present at the tribunal, Randy is alleged to have been caught recording outside the court. A Journalist who pleaded not to be mentioned said, “Randy picked up at military court for recording an interview, his release is being negotiated, I am speaking from a hideout in that court, he is currently being arraigned in the chamber at the Military court, only CRTV we are told had access to the place, we have been coerced to stay where we are before our phones will be checked. Whatever the former Bar Presidents like Muna, Tchougang, Monthe, Eta Bissong and others are with Randy in the Chamber, he is certainly out of danger.

Journalists present at the court were coerced to delete any photos or videos taken at the court.

We gathered that Randy could be released anytime after the verification process to determine whether he works for the BBC must have taken place.

The court hearing of Ayah Paul, Nkongho Balla, Mancho Bibixy, Dr Fontem and others arrested was programmed for February 1, 2017 reasons why a college of lawyers answered present at the Court to defend them.
