The Divisional Officer for Ndu subdivision, Adamu Shuaïbu Ibrahim has condemned the act of respecting ‘ghost towns’ and ‘lockdowns’ imposed by separatist fighters on the local population.
To this effect, he signed a release on January 20, stating clearly that markets and stores that have been sealed for not operating on Mondays, will be permanently closed. He added that should the traders want to continue operating their businesses, they will sign an undertaking, never to observe the ghost towns and lockdowns imposed by separatist fighters.
Going by the release, weekly markets in Ndu have henceforth been prohibited, while commercial bike riders and drivers who didn’t show up on Monday 18th January 2021 have been cautioned to stop work subsequently lest risk loosing their bikes and vehicles.
Ndu subdivision is in the Donga-Mantung division of the Northwest region of Cameroon, one of those places that have been severely hit by the ongoing crisis in the two english speaking regions of the country.
