The newly installed Divisional Officer of Mbengwi subdivision in Momo division, North West region has sealed business premises around the town for respecting separatist lockdown.
Installed just about a week ago, Ngidah Lawrence Che carried out the action on May 19, 2023 with the assistance of the Mbengwi council and security forces.
The shops and business premises sealed are located at the Mbon Park. Meanwhile the administrative authority warned that he will continue the process on other business premises.
Shop owners whose business premises have been sealed are told to report to the Mbengwi council.
This is coming at a time when the 2023 National Day is being celebrated in Cameroon. This period is always characterised with numerous lockdowns initiated by separatist fighters to frustrate the celebration in Anglophone regions since 2016.
Before the DO proceeded to seal the shops in Mbengwi, business premises even in the town of Bamenda were not opened and the situation was same in many towns across the North West region.
Report says DO Ngidah Lawrence first launched activities of the National Day, where he called on the population of Mbengwi to shun fear and come out in their numbers to celebrate this year’s 51st edition of the National Day.
Ngidah Laurence, former DO of Nkambe is noted for being hard on the population even during his old days in Nkambe subdivision, Donga-Mantung division.
