Fire has consumed part of the Kumba District hospital causing enormous material damage.
The fire incident whose origin is still unclear, broke out early today, at about 1:45 am when locals were still asleep.
A video circulating on social media, said Ambazonian fighters who have been fighting for the independence of the two English speaking regions of Cameroon are responsible.
The video recorder who sounded like a security officer said: “This is the hospital in flames…burnt by Ambazonian fighters since 1:00am. The different defence units, the BIR, Gendarmes…were called up and the fire fighting brigade to put out the flames”
But taking a keen look at the video, no efforts in putting out the flames could be seen.
The affected areas of the fire incident, we gathered include the; Nurses quarters, Male Medical, Male and Female Surgical wards, Gen room amongst others.
On the other hand, Anglophone activists say the military triggered the incident.
“A Gendarme just confirmed to me now in anonymity. They did it because the hospital treats wounded Amba fighters…the military set the hospital ablaze” one of them confided in Mimi Mefo Info.
Our reporter on the ground is however still investigating. News of the fire incident at the Kumba District Hospital comes after a night of deafening gunshots in the town of Kumba.
Gunshots have equally been heard early this morning in many neighbourhoods across Kumba.
Meanwhile, houses were last weekend set ablaze in Mamfe, South West Region and in Boh, Jam-jam, Wosing in Bali Nyonga, leaving scores of persons homeless.
One of the victims whose house in Wosing was brought down to ashes, told MMI that the military were responsible and have been using the scotch earth policy to fish out suspected pro independence fighters.
Deafening gunshots have also been reported early today in Bamenda, as youths prepare to take part in the youth day.
