Cameroonian police on high alert following two explosions in capital

YAOUNDE, June 24 (Xinhua) — Cameroonian police are on high alert for dangerous weapons after two improvised devices exploded in the capital, Yaounde, a senior police officer said on Wednesday.

Didier Ngah, police commissioner, said security has been enhanced and counter-terror measures have been put in place to secure the capital after two devices exploded on Sunday in the Central African country.

He did not give details about the explosion but local media reported that two security posts were attacked by gunmen using the improvised devices.

There will be systematic checks of all vehicles and neighbourhoods in the capital in view of finding arms, ammunitions and dangerous drugs, Ngah said in an order issued to police in the city.

In January, Cameroon police chief Martin Mbarga Nguelle warned of possible separatist attacks in the capital, urging the police to adopt a higher level of vigilance in “sensitive posts” and to report any suspicious activities.

Armed separatists want the Northwest and Southwest English-speaking regions to secede from the majority French-speaking Cameroon and form a new country called “Ambazonia.” They have been clashing with government forces since 2017. Enditem

  1. This is just the start. The chickens are coming home to roost.

  2. Point of correction,the people of the British southern Cameroons want out of lrc and not armed separatist.
    The war draft is almost done,so phase two of the war that lrc declared upon an innocent people is just about to begin.

    • @ Palapala, you should be ashamed of yourself to be calling Cameroonians in the 21st century ” the people of the British Southern Cameroons”. If you want to be British why don’t you move to Britain and honor your queen there. Cameroon is Cameroon and there is nothing like the British Cameroon or the French Cameroon. Cameroon was one before the imperialists came and divided us to evenly distribute our resources. My brother just as late Bob advised people like you: Emancipate yourself from mental slavery for none but ourselves can free our minds. You seriously need help. The Biya regime is Cameroon’s problem. We have nothing to do with British or France. We have to look for a way to get rid of Biya and his corrupt regime and reinstall democracy. This is the only way forward.

      • @bobjazz now listen to me well,i have no reason to be ashamed of calling my region the peoples of the British southern Cameroons.we can call ourselves whatever we want without any aota of shame.
        You can go start by changing your national language,your currency and all the accords you signed with france and then we can have a are french in every imaginable way,but yet you turn around to accuse a people who apart from the language they speak have no other strings attached to their former colonial masters.we are fighting for our freedom and not to go back to can take all the shiit from france but not the peoples of the British southern Cameroons.
        I think you are the one to be ashamed of yourself.go organise your march past in yaounde,biya will be very scared.

        • @ Palapala, you make me laugh. I am a so-called anglophone like you my friend. The fact is that the majority of sensible so-called anglophone Cameroonians don’t support your foolishness. Use your f’cking brain stupid Ambazonian. You can never ever succeed with what you are doing and you know it. Stop deceiving some naive anglophones while collecting their money and buying your houses, good cars and sending your kids to the best schools in the diaspora. It is not fair to deprive poor anglophone kids from going to school while yours are going to the best schools in the West. It is not fair chopping off the fingers of fathers who are trying to work hard to feed their families while you are working and feeding your family in the diaspora. God is watching and you will be punished one day.

        • @bobjazz,listen you little dimwit,if your definition of majority if frogs like you,or those that are benefiting from the crumbs in yaounde and asking British Southern Cameroonians to go face the bullet in his delusional march past and be killed,then i will suggest you go visit a psychiatrist asap.
          Neither i nor our people need no lessons from your type.we have been in this for too long to know what we want.

          Talking about atrocities,what happened to baby Martha,mami Apiah and the rest,don’t even get me there.

          You talk about education in that jungle called lrc,how has it benefited my people.many graduate,buy bendskins and end up under 18 wheelers,and when they rise up against the system they are brutally shot down,but yet you are asking for a march past.just go see a psychiatrist man.

  3. Now look at what have become of cameroon who knew that the 2cubes of sugar will refused to melt. This is sad .The people of Abakwa will never give up it is high time an adult step in and bring an end to the cancer that is eating cameroon which is macabre junta in Yaounde.

      Me too ah dong turn hear bad for dis grong, true-true…

  4. Violence begets violence. The shortsightedness of Yaounde is in believing that with Yaounde being alive, the NW and SW can burn themselves to the ground. So Yaounde can afford to be arrogant, but then what happens is that as the war goes on the fighters will become emboldened, overtime they will develop new ways of fighting, and will again experience in warfare. In the long run, this experience and determination will enable the infiltration of the rest of the country. This is a war Yaounde can never win, even if they used the most sophisticated army. No army can defeat a people’s determination. The source of this problem is clear. It should therefore almost be straight forward to resolve by dialogue, instead of the wanton killing & the burning down of villages, if lrc had wise leadership.

  5. We r about to see the IRA style of attack in the colonial capital Yaounde.Get ready.

    • Hear dis newspaper vendor…war di cam finish but you still dey for Sweden di mash fire, ana wey dem di wait you for bush for cam show ya IRA style.

      Eske you di even teik sia read some of da newspapers dem wey you di deliver’am for le sharp?…

  6. Les forces de défense et de sécurité du Cameroun ont incendié des maisons et des magasins en AMBAZONIE. Nous avons la liste de ce qu’ils font en plus de leurs actes barbares. 20.000+ personnes ont déjà été tués par la ripoublique de 600 villages décimés.

    Ils pillent, ils brûlent, ils tuent, ils mangent des chiens, volent du bétail
    Pour se faire passer pour des Ambazoniens. Ils s’habillent en clochards dans les rues et cachent des armes.Ils infiltrent pour écouter ce qui se dit.

    Les fonctionnaires vivent dans le chantage permanentIls volent les pc, les téléphones et tout ce qu’ils trouvent.
    LA RIPOUBLIQUE thief our ressources, buy weapons with the money then come and kill us with the weapons from the money of our ressources way dem thiefam. La Ripoublique Voleur.
