Cameroon’s North West and South West regions have been hit by sporadic gunshots and fierce confrontations between Security forces and pro-independence fighters this October 1 which marks the reunification of Southern Cameroon.
Though over 90% of the population stayed indoors following a-48hours curfew imposed on them by officials, the sounds of gunshots have been the frustration of many.
Gunshots were heard early today along the Mbonge road leading to Kumba, in Mile 14, Dibanda, the Baptist area near street 2 Buea, Bambui in Tubah Sub Division, Bafut, Kumbo.
” it is hot here in Kumbo, denizens are all on the floor…gunshots are coming from all directions..” a local wrote to Mimi Mefo info at 11am today.
Tension mounted in Bafut amid reports of military invasion in home in search of Amba boys. Calm is yet to return to the area like in neighbouring Mile 90 where gunshots were heard.
In Bafut, Mezam and Fundong chieftown of Boyo Division, Ambazonian flags were raised by pro independence fighters.
