PRESS RELEASE: CCMN member Ambe Macmillian Awa released
The CCMN – Cameroon Community Media Network can now confirm that one of its members, journalist Ambe Macmillian Awawho was abducted on Thursday February 21 2019 in Bamenda, has been released.
He was picked up by alleged separatists fighters in one of the neighborhoods of Bamenda Chief town of the restive Anglophone North West Regions of Cameroon.
