Violent clashes have reportedly erupted between armed gangs operating at Shell New Bell in Douala. Security sources revealed that the killing of a young Muslim man created the conflict. In some form of retaliation, a group of young men, armed with guns and machetes revolted.
The gang attacked houses and fired bullets in the air. Our source noted that several people were wounded. The residents of the area made desperate calls to the police who only arrived hours later.
This is not the first time that an urban vendetta has taken place in the heart of Douala. In 2016, unidentified armed men sowed terror in Douala and vandalized many businesses.
