The Meme divisional chief town of Kumba in the South West region has been thrown in total panic and confusion this morning.
A planned peaceful walk is raising fears of an impending confrontation with security forces. Hundreds of youths mostly bike riders have turned out at the Town Green square for a solidarity march in connection with the red Thursday in Bamenda. They are denouncing the brutal crackdown of protesters by security forces which has left at least four people dead and many more injured in the North West capital city. The police and paramilitary elements are also mobilising to storm the scene. Correspondence reports say traders are closing their shops as everyone heads for their homes. Tension is mounting.
