Barrister Felix Nkongho Agbor Balla founder and Executive Director of Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa is once again on the table of character assassination, public judgment and general suspicion on his role in the ongoing Anglophone crisis in Cameroon.
This unprecedented waves came following the sudden suspension of his publicized TV interview on the Kenyan based Punchline Africa TV with Dr. David Nyekorach Matsanga yesterday March 27, 2018, on the topic “Anglophone Crisis in Cameroon”.
According to separatists activists, the legal practitioner was “punched out by Punchline Africa” after pressure from the Cameroon Anglophone online community who now detest his pro-federalist stance in face of the “Struggle” alleging further that Barrister Agbor Balla was sent by Minister Atanga Nji Paul to infiltrate the popular media house and propagate 10 state federation in Cameroon which is what they now abhor.
Unable to bear the continual online character assassination on his political person, the legal luminary took to a timely press release hours later after the cancelation of the interview to explain what really happened.
In the press release dated 27 March 2018 Barrister Agbor Balla confirmed that Punchline Africa suspended the interview due to concerns and attacks raised by the online community but refuted allegations that he was sent by Atanga Nji Pual, Cameroon’s current and “controversial” Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization. He condemned social media propaganda and allegations against him as “false, petty and shameful”. Read the full press release below
