The incident which the Government Delegate says was targetted at frustrating National Day affected the roof and pillars.
A manhunt has been launched to fish out the person or persons behind the act, the City's Manager Victor Nkele Ngoh reveals. The Government Delegate has denounced in strong terms attempts by these persons to thwart the National Day which appears to be going "hitchfree" as he says.
The incident which occurred on the night of Wednesday breaking Thursday has brought to light the neglect of the ceremonial ground by municipal and administrative authorities.
During the heart of the anglophone crisis, various social networks showed the hoisting of the SCNC flag at the grnad stand.
The facility is gradually becoming a hideout for men of the underworld who consume marijuana and even mess it up with faeces. In the meantime, repairs are being carried out on the damaged section while elements of the Rapid Intervention Battalion , BIR are guarding the grand stand ahead of Saturday's showdown.
