Heavy fightings continue for a second consecutive day in Bambili, Tubah Sub division, North West region of Cameroon between French Cameroun security forces and Ambazonia fighters, sources have confirmed.
A source in Bambili said suspected armed Ambazonia fighters attacked the Bambili gendarmerie brigade on Tuesday morning prompting a heavy gun battle.
The fighting has forced many residents to remain indoors while some businesses have shut down as residents flee for their safety.
Tuesday’s clashes followed on from Monday where the Ambazonia fighters engaged Cameroun security forces around the Fon’s palace as well as towards the ENS street as residents were all indoors observing the traditional “ghost town” Mondays.
It is still difficult to identify casualties but Bambili has been under tension since the end of last week after a lecturer of the University of Bamenda Paul Mbufong was brutally killed in neighboring Bambui.
