Cameroon: Traffic paralysed on Buea-Kumba road after heavy gunshots

Traffic on the road between Buea and Kumba was paralysed at the weekend following heavy exchange of gunshots between security forces and separatist fighters, sources have confirmed.

Sources said the separatist fighters engaged security forces arond Ekona blocking the road with similar battles taking place in Muyuka where a truck transporting cocoa was burnt down. Several vehicles were also burnt down as passengers were stranded.

A source travelling on the road told journalducameroun.com that they were escorted in a convoy through the road on Thursday morning by security forces in the midst of sporadic gunshots.

However, the situation degenerated early on Friday morning with heavy gunshots as separatist took control of parts of the road where they mounted road blocks and were quick to post images on social media.

The tensed atmosphere comes to add to the woes of the local population especially those in Kumba who have gone for several days without electricity following a power breakdown on one of the transformers at the entrance to town.

Sources say, workers of the electricity supply company would only get to the area to fix the technical fault when the security situation in the area must have improved.

Circulation was however partially restored on the road later on Sunday evening by security forces but the atmosphere remained tense.
