The Governor of the North West Region has signed an order restricting the “movement of persons and property” from “6pm to 6am within the North West region till further notice.”  

According to the regional order signed Sunday September 9, Governor Lele L’afrique Tchoffo Deben Adolph’s order is necessitated by “the exigencies of security, the preservation of peace and the maintenance of law and order.”  

During the said period the order adds “movements of vehicles, persons and goods shall be strictly forbidden, all off licenses, snack bars and night clubs shall remain closed. Motor parks shall remain closed and night travel suspended. The circulation of motor bikes shall be completely suspended. The circulation of motor bikes shall completely be suspended during said hours.” 

The regional order No 462 specify that the “measures shall not apply to administrative authorities, forces of law and order, persons and vehicles in possession of special authorization to circulate and ambulances.”  

The order comes just a few hours after a major attack by an armed group left thousands of passengers stranded on National road Number six between Bamenda and Akum, people killed, buses destroyed, an excavator caterpillar burnt and a trench dug on the main road preventing circulation. 

The current decision replaces another which was ongoing restricting movement from 9pm to 5am. 

In the meantime Bamenda city dwellers and visitors to the city will learn to limit their activities between 6am and 6pm from now till further notice.

Various administrative authorities have been charged with the strict implementation of the order which took effect yesterday evening.
