Some detained leaders of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia have resolved to observe a hunger strike, in protest to the non-disclosure of the whereabouts of some missing Anglophone detainees.

The information filtered from a court session this Monday July 29, at the Yaounde Military Tribunal.

A source revealed that, Sisiku and 7 others will begin a hunger strike on July 31, till political prisoners arrested in the two Anglophone minority regions of Cameroon are accounted for.

Lawyers defending the Southern Cameroon leaders appeared in court in an unusual attire. They tied red pieces of cloths on their arms, as a sign of mourning for political prisoners who continue to undergo torture and starvation in detention camps.

It is also to show their disgust in the recent torture of one of their colleagues by gendarmes in Yaounde recently.

After several deliberations at the military tribunal, the court case against Sisiku and co was ajourned to August 5 this year.
