Ntarikon youths took advantage of the civil disobedience campaign orchestrated by the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium and transformed the main motor way in the neighborhood into a playground. The young people organized a football encounter on the road linking Ntarikon to Nchuabuh in Bamenda. The ghost town operation which was widely observed throughout West Cameroon will continue tomorrow Tuesday the 17th of January 2017.
In areas in the Bamenda metropolis such as T-Junction, City Chemist, Mobil Nkwen and Meta Quarters, places were quiet as pedestrians walked to their different destinations with the absence of usual taxis or commercial motor bikes. Business activities were also grounded as the major shopping centers remained closed. The banking sector and its very active money transfer services were also shut down. Francophone security agents have been stationed in all the four cardinals’ points of the city of Bamenda.
The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium is expected to issue a statement late on Tuesday which will include an evaluation of the two-day civil disobedience campaign and the work done so far by the lawyers drafting the new constitution that will give birth to a new Southern Cameroons state.
