Night Curfew Declared Over Bamenda

Bamenda City

Mezam SDO Songa Pierre Rene has signed an Order prohibiting all forms of movement in Mezam Division as from 10 pm to 5 am daily from today to October 3rd, 2017.

This decision follows a bomb blast this morning at the Hospital Round About neigbourhood in Bamenda that injured three police officers. The same order also preempts activities of Anglophone separatists who are planning to hold independent celebrations on October 1.  Earlier the same SDO had signed an order banning all public meetings within Mezam in the same period.

Another decision by the Governor of the Northwest also ban all forms of movement of persons between the divisions of the Northwest region from Midnight today to midnight Friday September 22.

The decision is expected to have a heavy toll on business and travelers, already suffering under the crippling weight of ghost towns. Many travel agencies that usually depart Bamenda by 10 pm and arrive in the wee hours of the morning would be force to readjust their departure times.
