Six Cameroonian Professors Teaching In Nigeria Illegally Imprisoned, Lawyer Tells Reps



Lawyer for the six Cameroonian professors teaching in Nigerian universities and four others Joseph Fruon Tuesday told the House of Representatives that the dons were illegally imprisoned by the Cameroonian authorities.

Addressing journalists after appearing before the House of Representatives Committee on Public Petitions, Fru said they were optimistic that with the intervention of the legislature, the matter would be resolved.

Fru, in the company of family members of the incarcerated professors, lamented that the representative of the United Nations and other government agencies were absent from the public hearing.

He said those who failed to turn up included the Attorney General of the Federation, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, the UN High Commission Country Representative, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the National Intelligence Agency and the Department of State Services (DSS).

He said: “There is a clarification that we need to make that is fundamental and cardinal.”
