News spread over social media that the initiator of the Coffin revolution, described as the immediate cause of the Anglophone crisis, Mancho Bibixy died at the National Gendarmerie headquarter in Yaoundé SED, after he was transferred from Kondengui on the night of an uprising that left Yaoundé in panic.
Following the incident that occurred on the 22nd of July 2019, some front leaders spotted in videos were transferred to SED, and rumours circulated that a good number of Anglophone detainees had been killed, including Mancho.
Separatist leaders gave an ultimatum to the government of Cameroon to account for all Anglophone detainees in Kondengui or else they would order a lockdown until their request is attended to.
However, in a tweet, this Tuesday, the Ministry of Communication posted that all was well with Mancho and other detainees.
“ Mutiny at the Kondengui Central Prison #Cameroon: False allegations on the death of Mr. MACHO BIBIXY CHE.
The aforementioned, spotted among the 177 leaders, is doing well, just like the other fellow insurgent inmates held in remand for investigation.”, read the tweet.
Before this communiqué, the Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Justice, Momo Jean De Dieu posted a picture on social media, supposedly to convince irate separatists, that Mancho was fine.
