“The situation is under control”. That is how Njoketunjia SDO, Kuela Valeri Norbert summed up the situation, 48 hours after the violent confrontation that pitted some inhabitants of Bamali, Ngoketungia Division against the forces of law and order on Monday, December 29, 2014. The results include injuries suffered by some three civilians and 12 elements of the forces of Law and Order. Ngoketunjia SDO, Kuela Valeri Norbert also suffered injuries in the squabble.
At press time, the Chief Medical Officer of the Ndop District hospital, Dr Joseph Kwa told Cameroon Tribune in a telephone chat that all the 15 victims had been treated and had retired to their respective homes and job sites. To blame was a resistance mounted by Bamali inhabitants against the forces of law and order who were out on the field to recover firearms allegedly stocked in the Bamali palace. It resulted to the disturbance of social peace but for the timely intervention of the administration.
In effect, North West Governor, Adolphe Lele Lafrique travelled to Bamali on December 30, 2014 where he sized up the situation, saluted the professionalism of the forces of Law and Order in the face of the violence and stated the preparedness of the administration to ensure that elite who fuel regular crises in the neighbourhood are prosecuted.
