Limbe: One dead, a dozen injured from an explosion

The Senior Divisional Officer of Fako Mr. Chaibou has called for calm, vigilance, and full collaboration from the population of Limbe following a suspected separatist attack in Limbe that killed one person and injured dozens on the night of September 8, 2023.

Witnesses said someone onboard a motorbike, threw a bag which exploded at the junction of the Ambas Bay along the Gardens stretch of road with several business places, and drinking spots, close to a commercial motorbike park. The Soccer City spot which is close by with a massive crowd last night, was the luckiest as witnesses said, this would have caused enormous damages.

One person who died had blood stains on his body and arm. while most of the injured were those who ran helter-skelter for safety.

Government forces and administrative officials by Fako SDO immediately arrived at the scene and gathered fragments of the explosive device for onward analysis.

Sources close to the Fako administration say owners of business places along the road might be asked to put in place CCTV cameras as measures to beef up security in Limbe.

The incident, observers say, was aimed at instilling fear in the people, as Limbe remains one of the most calm towns in the two English-speaking regions of Cameroon.
