Romancing with the EU: Francophone governor lifts travel ban in Bamenda 0

Cameroon’s English-speaking region of Northwest on Friday removed an overnight travel ban on persons and property, according to a statement signed by the region’s governor Adolph Lele Lafrique.

Lafrique did not give any reason why the ban was cancelled in the region that is ravaged by armed separatism. The ban was imposed in November last year restricting movement from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. local time in the region in a bid to limit persistent separatists’ attacks at night.

Fighting is still ongoing in the two Anglophone regions of Northwest and Southwest where armed separatists want to create an independent nation they call “Ambazonia.”
