Anglophone Crisis Cameroon -- School Set Ablaze In Bamenda In Spite Of "Tight Security"

Five classrooms of the Government Primary School Atuakom in Bamenda are reported burned down by unidentified individuals notwithstanding the frightening presence of the forces of law and order who have invaded Southern Cameroons, especially to ensure the safety of candidates taking official examinations. 

The incident occurred during the early hours of Monday morning, around 3 a.m., reports camerooninfo.net. According to reports, the unidentified persons perpetrated the act and disappeared before security forces could arrive at the scene.

But the fire fighting brigade arrived with the police and put out the fire. As investigations get underway, some sources claim that the incident is the handiwork of some activities fighting for the Anglophone Cause.

This is not the first time fire is consuming buildings in Southern Cameroons. Several places have been reduced to ashes, including markets ( in Bamenda and Limbe), a police station and several other schools).

The unrest in Southern Cameroons began in November 2016 when Common Law lawyers took to the street to decry (most importantly) the invasion of their legal culture by East Cameroon. Teachers and students followed and the strike took a different turn.

For months now, the majority of the students and pupils in the two English-speaking regions of Cameroon have been away from classes.

Ghost towns continue in spite of pressure and crackdown from Yaoundé.

The practical phase of the General Certificate of Education began on Monday, featuring just everybody including unregistered candidates.
