The most likely seems to be Long-crested Eagle (Lophaetus occipitalis) given the plumage I can make out and those very obvious white windows in the wings. Won't bet on it though

Hmmmm.... Neither Birdlife or Borrow & Demey have l-c eagles occurring on Bioko--not that it means it can't be a vagrant. Looking through the underwing shots of B&D, maybe a pale European honey buzzard juvenile? Or reaching even more, a juvie fish eagle (not that the habitat or tail supports it)?
