Cameroon: Phone chats under surveillance as Mass arrest of Secessionists looms

A spiral of arrests will soon hit the North West and South West regions as government plans to continue its crackdown  on those fueling the prevailing socio political heat in these regions . South West Governor, Bernard Okalia made the revelation earlier this week  in Buea, while evaluating the security situation of his zone of command.

He even confessed to have 10 names already, people he says continue to disturb the peace of the region.

"We are contemplating arresting all those involved in the uprising" he says.
This follows an ongoing wire tapping of private conversations of the population to fish out those linked to the crisis.

Okalia Bilai has frown at the double faces of some people who pretend to be disturbed about the situation but are backing secessionists behind the scenes.
He has announced the deployment of more troops in response to calls to disturb examinations, insisting that the South West region can not be demilitarised  when people still carry out ghost towns, burn public property and intimidate the population.

Government disconnected internet connection from the two Anglophone regions  for close to 3 months, over what it said was abusive use to distabilise the country in the heat of the Anglophone crisis.

When it was reinstated, the Minister of Communication, Issa Tchiroma Bakary said Government could be cut it off if the country's stability was threatened.
