Rumors recently surfaced claiming that Michèle Ndoki (a lawyer at the Cameroonian Bar Association and Vice President of Women of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon-MRC party) had been arrested. According to some media reports, she was arrested by police in the Southwest region while trying to clandestinely leave the country.
"The human rights lawyer has been taken to an unknown destination. Reports indicate that Michèle Ndoki went to Bakassi for humanitarian service and was on her way back to Limbe when she was arrested in Idenau, said our source, who refused to be named (…) The commissioner told Michèle Ndoki that she was 'banned' from leaving the country but Bakassi is located in Cameroon, and Ndoki has traveled abroad at least three times via Cameroon's international airport since her release from prison last year," wrote Mimi Mefo, a journalist and cyber-activist.
This is fake information. It was rejected by the lawyer herself in a video posted on social media on November 22nd.
"Good evening, I just heard the news when I switched on my phone, which was off since yesterday. As you can see, there are over 80 conversations discussing it and I even missed 30 calls… Your attention deeply moves me, but I want to tell everyone that I was not arrested. I’m fine and at home,” she said smiling.
