The Minister of Territorial administration Atanga Nji Paul, has restricted the sales of arms in some Regions of Cameroon and says his decision comes as a result of the threats public order is facing.
Atanga Nji signed a communique on 4 April 2018 to reveal to the public that the proliferation of illicit arms has reached a disturbing level at which public order is severely menaced.
He went on to say that, several persons own both modern and locally made guns without authorisation from the government.
The six Regions involved in this suspension till further notice include, Adamawa, Centre, Litoral, West, Northwest and Southwest Regions.
The Minister warns and demands the owners of arms without authorisation to give them back to the competent authorities in 30 days from the date of release of this communique
