Basile Atangana Kouna was removed from his ministerial position during President Paul Biya’s March 2 cabinet reshuffle. He had already been ordered the previous month not to leave the country.

It was not clear what charges Atangana Kouna was facing, but there was speculation on Thursday that he was arrested as part of an anti-corruption drive known as Operation Sparrowhawk.

Three men - a former Ministry of Public Works official, the head of a state company, and the ex-rector of the University of Douala - were arrested as part of the operation earlier this week.
