Residents and Students of a public school in Bangem in Cameroon’s South West Region have ‘taken cover’ under the beds and benches, after sounds of gunshots were heard in several parts of the town this Tuesday afternoon.
“We hear gunshots from the Nguti Security Control Post, but we are unsure what caused it,” said one of the frightened student.
Students are now trapped in their classrooms. “We are unsure how to get home,” said one of them.
Gunshots have become the new normal in Cameroon’s English-speaking North West and South West Regions where Separatists have been fighting for a breakaway state called ‘Ambazonia’
