After a very tensed strike yesterday November 21st 2016 in Bamenda which saw all stores, shops, financial institutions and markets closed, the US Embabsy warned their citizens not to travel to the NW and SW regions where the said strike was to take place. Below is what was posted in their website https://yaounde.usembassy.gov/m-11182016.html

The U.S. Embassy informs U.S. citizens that strikes and demonstrations are planned for November 21, 2016, in the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon, particularly in the cities of Buea, Bamenda and Limbe. The U.S. Embassy has deferred all non-essential travel for U.S. Embassy personnel to these regions from November 21 to 23.

U.S. citizens are advised to adjust travel plans accordingly. Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. Avoid areas where demonstrations are taking place and exercise caution when in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
