Bamenda: Traders, Bikers Defy Governor Okalia’s Curfew


Some traders and commercial motor bike riders today defied a 40 hours curfew imposed on the population by the Governor of the Southwest Region, Bernard Okalia Bilai.

While, the population was rushing into the Buea Central Market and the Great Soppo Market to get food stuff for tomorrow as uncertainty looms, police officers who attempted to stop them were simply brushed off. The traders refused too to quit the market.

In some neighbourhoods like Muea and Mile 16, there were sporadic skirmishes between some bikers and the forces of law and other. The bikers swore that tomorrow Sunday, October 1, they will be marching on to their independence.

Governor Okalia Bilai slammed a curfew on the Southwest Region from Friday, September 29 to Monday October 2.

In the communiqué published on September 28, the Governor prohibited all movement in and out of the Southwest Region, all activities of Commercial bike riders, all inter-urban transportation, the closure of markets, snack bars, night clubs, wharves, seaports and borders among others.
