A government teacher and leader of the non-governmental organisation (NGO) Menchum Cartel Association, as well as the president of the Menchum Cattle Breeders Association in Cameroon, has been found guilty of acts of terrorism and financing acts of terrorism.

Adamou Wakiri was found guilty by the Yaounde Military Tribunal on Sept. 21, 2022 and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment.

According to the prosecution, Wakiri, a teacher at the Government Primary School, Wum, had on several occasions been seen in the company of Anglophone separatist fighters in the area.

Wakiri was also accused of having stolen cattle from a prominent cattle breeder in Wum, which cattle he took to Nigeria and sold them and then used the money to procure arms for the separatists.

He was also accused of acting as a spy for the separatists to whom he fed information on the movements of the military and people in Wum.
Wakiri’s lawyer, Barrister Alima, described the trial as a “fantasy” and said she would appeal the judgement.

Barrister Alima said her client was jailed based on mere allegations without proof.
