Cameroon – Buea: Who Set Shops Ablaze In Buea During Ghost Town?

Written by Deckson N.

Inhabitants of Buea Sub Division in the South West Region are still wondering what could have caused the fire outbreak Monday night which ravaged some shops whose owners are said to have opened on Ghost Town day.

Contents of over half a dozen of Council shops at Mile 17,the main entrance into the town of Buea went into flames Monday night January 30,2017 and no one knows the origin.

While the people of Buea say it must have been carried out by some disgruntled Cameroonians for the non respect of Ghost Town observed Monday and Tuesday, others say it might have been a plan put in place by Council authorities to have more reasons for sealing shops.

Most of the shops visited by fire were opened on Monday when others were observing Ghost Town. According to shop owners they were afraid of threats from Mayor Patrick Ekema Esunge who had been parading in town sealing shops that were respecting the Ghost Town.

Meantime one of the Taxis bought by the Mayor to frustrate Ghost Town has been set ablaze by an unknown man. The Passenger alighted from the taxi and set the back sit on fire before running away.
