Sunday September 30, 2018 will go down memory-lane in the two English Speaking Regions of Cameroon. Denizens woke up to a dead city this Sunday, as no one dared step foot out of their houses, for fear of the unknown.
This is coming on the heels of an imposed dusk-to-dawn curfew enforced by the administrative authorities of the Northwest and Southwest regions. According to the communique circulated on Social Media, denizens all of the two regions, were warned to remain indoors all day and night, on Sunday September 30, to Tuesday October 2.
The communiques further indicated that the raison d’être for the imposed curfew, is to prevent offensive attacks from the Ambazonian separatist fighters.
From buea, through Limbe, Kumba, Mamfe, Bamenda, Ndop, Mbengwi, to name but this, echoes of dead town resonated across the quarters, streets and towns.
No one dared step foot outside even to check on their neighbours.
Sunday, a characteristic worship day for the predominantly Christian regions, was very dead. No church services, held.
From the look of things, this Monday October 1, 2018, will experience the same fate.
That however, may be perturbed with fighting if the Ambazonian soldiers decide to enforce the celebrations of the supposed Independence Day of Southern Cameroons.
Nonetheless, the govern has taken all security dispositions to ensure that no celebrations of the takes place.
Security forces have been deployed to the nooks and crannies, ready to shoot at anyone who steps out.
It should be noted that, more than half of the population of rhe two English speaking regions, have fled to the Francophone regions, for safety.
Many, as late as Saturday September 29, 2018 night, were seen at various bus tops, boarding vehicles to flee away from the uncertainties that looms on October 1, 2018.
