The Douala police service has banned the distribution of any newspaper calling on President Biya to retire. The decision was made to prevent activists of the African Movement for New Independence and Democracy (Manidem) from circulating a party publication bearing the message: "No to Biya's bid for the presidency in 2018".
Cameroon Concord's Douala bureau chief reported earlier that security agents have been deployed all over the streets of Douala confiscating anti Biya leaflets. The president of the Manidem group, Dieudonne Yebga in one of the press releases noted that Biya has the last chance to leave through the front door.
Copies of the Manidem newspaper were seized and destroyed from the hands of vendors who were selling at the Deido Roundabout.
