Work is yet to effectively resume at the Batibo District Hospital following an incident that occurred leading to gun shots in the hospital and even the loss of life though we cannot independently confirm.
Our sources at the hospital say “a set of people in uniform looking like soldiers carrying guns arrived the hospital. They walked into the hospital as if they were searching for someone and before we could know we heard gunshots. At this point we just had to be hiding. We however noticed that there was an interest in one end of hospital as the uniform people focused attention as if someone was running away from them there.”

As to what happened later, my source continued “When the people who dressed like soldiers returned to the hospital after what looked like they were chasing someone, they started beating up everyone pulling out patients from their beds and ordering others  to leave the hospital. According to these people, they say they are treating Abambazonia forces in the hospital.”
Another source in Batibo says in the course of the exchange in the hospital one man was carried away in the “military car looking as if he was dead after being shut.”
Information we cannot independently confirm say the incident was provoked by information that there was a young man admitted in the hospital with wounds said to be a member of the Amabazonia Defense forces. According to this source “he was guarded by two of his colleagues of the same force and immediately escaped as soon as the military came.”
I am here in Bamenda to continue my treatment. I was pulled out from my bed while in Batibo and asked to leave immediately.” A patient from Batibo tells me with signs of pains in Bamenda. Adding “I could not insist to stay though there was calm when they left but the nurses were beaten and I could not stay there alone since they (nurses) also left.”
It has been difficult to confirm why the incidence at the hospital with no official statement either from neither the hospital nor the gun shooters.
 Reacting to the Guardian Post Ndiegang Johnson a medical professional however says it is the responsibility and as a matter of oath for medical personal to save lives always no matter who is concerned.”
As at yesterday work was yet to effectively takeoff at the deserted facility.
