Having restricted the movement of motorbikes around specific counties last week, the colonial governor Lele Lafrique Adolphe of the Northern Zone wasn’t pleased with the outcome. He went further ahead with a press release marked No.11 and made public Monday ordering the prohibition of movements of ”persons and property” starting March 11, between 09:00 PM to 05:00 AM throughout the entire Northern Zone until further notice.
Faced with what civil administrator calls ”growing threats” from pro-independence fighters directed toward La Republique security forces, colonial governor Lele Lafrique Adolphe is implementing a curfew across the region under his jurisdiction as a precaution while appealing to the population for their cooperation.
The restriction of motorbikes from circulation has already seen a pushback by denizens whose source of revenue and livelihood have been stifled, now his latest attempt in the desperate quest for the return to ”normalcy” is a full-blown curfew, testing the resolve yet again of the people of the Northern Zone to remain indoors so that La Republique’s security forces could put an end to ”detrimental activities” of Pro-Independence fighters of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.
This comes as a response to the video making rounds on social media, purporting the abduction of a Social Affairs delegate, urging the extradited leaders to be made visible and warning of the mayhem to follow suit should La Republique government, fail to comply. Whether the curfew will be observed, remains to be seen but knowing the defiant nature of the people of Northen Zone, one can readily expect some resistance.
