Paddy Asanga, a Cameroonian based in Hambourg- Germany, has been reportedly arrested at the Yaounde Central Prison in Kondengui.

He was caught taking pictures and making videos of the maximum security prison, while on a visit to the facility. Sources say he has been transferred the national gendarmerie brigade known as SED.

The federalist Asanga was amongst the diasporan community who attended the just ended major national dialogue. He is one of those who pushed for federalism at the commission for decentralisation and local development.

Very critical of the regime, many thought he would be arrested immediately he lands in Cameroon for the national dialogue.
While in Yaounde during the dialogue that ran from September 30 to October 4, the activist expressed disappointment over the delegates represented at the dialgue, stating they were not connected to the Anglophone Crisis.

Interviewed by the media at the Yaounde Conference Centre, Paddy said they came purposely to discuss politics and not to sit and watch decisions taken on their behalf. He also boasted they weren't afraid of any arrests.

Cameroonian activists in the diaspora has recently been vying for asylum, with the fear of been repatriated to their country of origin, where they could be arrested and face heavy jail terms. Many of them boycotted the Major National Dialogue.
