Reliable witnesses and pictures revealed huge property damages. Dozens of shops burned down as well as merchandise stalls. “This is the second disaster in the market within a month,” said Kum Leonard, a Bamenda journalist. The first tragedy of the month occurred November 16. Let’s also recall that back in March 2007, the market burned down.
Victims said this is probably a criminal action relating to socio-political tensions due to the Anglophone crisis in the northwest and southwest. A police investigation is underway.
