It is over 2 years now since ghost town phenomenon started in the two restive Anglophone regions, since 2 years, the Mayor of Buea, Ekema Patrick Esunge, waged a ferocious fight against the civil disobedience without success. The Mayor has lamented that the enemies are very close to him, reasons why all efforts have proven futile.

Mr Ekema Patrick said that some in-house persons are involved concluding that not everyone within is for development, ” We have defended so well…some of our people, some of our brothers and sisters will galvanize resources to look for prolific players from a negative end to score goals. But we will remain vigilant to prevent goals from entering our net.” The Mayor told reporters in Buea.

It is over one year since Mr Ekema Patrick promised denizens that ghost town was going to be history. In a move to eliminate the phenomenon, he has carried out several campaigns including sealing of shops, impounding commercial vehicles(Taxis) to no avail.

Ambazonia Separatist fighters have for the past two year been reinforcing ghost towns every Monday Since January 9, 2017, with gunshots and threats of burning shops and cars.

They have on many occasions orchestrated the burning of cars especially around Bunduma in Buea and burning of shops in Mile 17.

Buea, capital of South West region has been worst hit after Bamenda town. A recent lock-down to sabotage the just ended Festival of Arts and Culture in Limbe, affected more than the targeted town.

The much talked about Ambazonia lockdown went into full force today across some cities and villages in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon, sources have confirmed.

As usual, the day has been characterised by exchange of fire between security forces and Ambazonia fighters, local sources report.

In Tiko, at the entrance to the South West region of Cameroon, activities were very timid with very few bikes and taxis moving in the early hours of the morning but picked up steam as the day wore through.

Further at Mutengene, it was rather a mixed atmosphere with a timid pace of activities while a few gunshots were heard around the “quarter rubber” neighbourhood.

In Buea, the entrance of the town was swept in a complete lockdown from Mile 14 through to Molyko as shops remained closed as while the streets remained deserted. However, there was a lease of life further up town as shops were open around Bongo Square right up to Buea Town.

Driving out of Buea, precisely around Muea, there were exchange of fire between security forces and Ambazonia fighters in Liongo village as well as the Wokaka new layout, sources said.

Muyuka was equally on lockdown as gunshots were heard throughout the morning and equally resumed later in the day, our sources said.

Further in Kumba, sources say most parts of the city are locked down compounded by the fact that the town has been in total black out.

In Bamenda, the lockdown was effective in most parts of the city with gunshots heard around Ntaruru though no cit has been quiet for the rest of the day.

In Ndu, sources talk of a dead town following a military operation last night aborted by heavy rains that forced the soldiers to retreat.

In summary, the lockdown was respected in some parts of the North West and South West regions of Cameroon while others went ahead with business as usual.
