Ntarikon in Hold Up

These are pictures of more barricades erected by the population around Ntarikon where we have tried unsuccesfully to cross a heavy police line mounted just after the Ntarikon market to report on what is happening at the other side of town. 

More truck loads of police men backed by the army and an over head flying helecopter have been dispatched toawards the Ntarikon area. Meanwhile we just gathered that more people are gathering at the Natrikon residence of Ni John Fru where we are heading on foot now to gather information.

There have also been barricades and burning tyres mounted at Meta Quarter and other parts of town which we are still unable to confirm. Mobilty in Bamenda has been greatly limited by these barricades and many can only trek to get to the other side of town. The police meanwhile have been desperatedly clearing the road blocks one after the other only for them to be mounted minutes later. 

 

The streets of Ntarikon have been blocked with these burning tyres

every available object is used to block the road
