Some major towns in the English speaking Northwest and Southwest regions are in lockdown.
The Sako-led Interim Government of Ambazonia is reported to have called the lockdown in what they call,’a protest’ against the visit of French president Emmanuel Macron to Yaounde-nations political Capital.
Mr Emmanuel Macron is on an official visit to Cameroon since July 25 and is expected to end on July 27th, 2022.
Images from Bamenda and Buea show empty streets with most businesses closed.
Some inhabitants consider the lockdown as irrational given that Mr Macron is visiting Yaounde and not the North West and South West regions.
“What is the use of a lockdown in Bamenda for example when Macron is in Yaounde and will likely not come this way” a Bamenda local told MMI.
“Let those calling for this lockdown know we are tired of this kind of suffering they are giving us all the time” another inhabitant said.
It should be noted that separatists have been using lockdowns as means to prove control of the North West and South west regions.
