Gun shots were fired and tear gas used by elements of the Rapid Intervention Battalion, BIR as the beautiful town of Njinikom in the Bamenda province of Southern Cameroons was today transformed into a battle ground.
Cameroon Concord News was reliably informed that an open confrontation erupted during the civil disobedience campaign between the youths and the Francophone elite force deployed to the area from Bamenda. Our informant also revealed that the atmosphere was chaotic in Wombong down town.
Calm finally returned following a truce deal struck by the mayor of Njinikom, Terence Chah Bam and the Divisional Officer Bontang Justine. All okada riders who were arrested during the troubles were released.
The people of Njinikom have promised to respect the orders of the Consortium and continue with ghost operations tomorrow. The Biya Francophone Beti Ewondo regime is yet to issue a statement.
