Secessionist attacks: 200 people arrested in Douala


A large police raid operation has been under way for several hours in several districts of Douala, the economic capital of Cameroon.

According to information received by CameroonWeb editors, more than 200 people were arrested on Friday night at Makepe Misoke in the Douala district.

These individuals were arrested during a raid of the police elements of the Mobile Rapid Response Unit. The arrested persons were not in possession of any identity document according to our source.

In addition to Makepe Misoke, other neighborhoods such as Bonaberi in the 4th district of Douala have also witnessed a raid of elements of police forces that night Friday.

A police source contacted by the CameroonWeb editorial indicates that this operation was initiated following the many secessionist threats hovering over the city of Douala in recent days.

With the introduction of a curfew in the North West region since last Sunday, several populations in the English-speaking cities of the North-West and South-West have left their region of origin in the direction of Douala or Yaounde.

A movement that makes fear of secessionist attacks in the political and economic capitals of Cameroon.
