A fire destroyed the dormitory of the Presbyterian Secondary School (PSS) Bafut in the Bamenda County. According to a police source, unidentified men set fire on the building on Wednesday morning. The girls’ dormitory was heavily affected with huge loss of school equipment.
The students were receiving lectures in the classrooms when flames erupted in the dormitory. A Bafut police spokesperson said all the students were safe and sound. “At the moment we do not know the origin of the flames but we believe that it is a criminal act. The investigation opened by the judicial police of Bamenda will certainly prove that, “concluded the police source.
PSS Bafut had been closed for many months due to unrest in Southern Cameroons. After strengthening the security apparatus around Bamenda, the college reopened on August 2017.
