Amba fighters have declared war on commercial motorbike riders in Funding, chief town of Boyo division of the North West Region.
The decision was taken after the said riders ignored calls for the boycott of the 20th May celebration.
On Wednesday June 1,nine bikers were reportedly caught and had their bikes set ablaze by suspected Ambazonia fighters.
This however came more than a week after inhabitants were banned from using the roads linking Fundong to Bamenda, passing through Njinikom.
According to reports, vehicles had been banned in Fundong, leaving inhabitants with bike riding as the only means of transportation.
Amba fighters according to sources, blocked the highway leading to Njinikom, which was later re-opened following an operation staged by the forces of defense and security.
The fighters have repeatedly blocked the Fundong-Bamenda road, which according to them is a way of punishing the Fundong people for going against their rules.
