The horrifying gunfire exchanges in Bamenda brought activities to an abrupt end as locals ran helter-skelter for refuge.
Local media reported that the chief capital of Ambazonia’s Northern Zone was completely deserted around 3:00 pm following Tuesday snare.
Days back, a French Cameroun military General in Bamenda intimated that the colonial army was making great strides towards crushing Ambazonian forces in the Northern Zone.
