Undeclared Curfew in Garoua as Late President Ahidjo’s Daughter Escapes Lynching

Aminatou Ahidjo
The daughter of the first President of Cameroon, Aminatou Ahidjo who recently joined the CPDM campaign team has recorded her first baptism of fire. Sources from the Northern Region say at about 6:30 pm, yesterday Wednesday September 18, the CPDM campaign caravan was blocked over river Benoue. The vandals we gathered wanted to give Aminatou Ahidjo a test of the political bitterness that has characterized Cameroon. If not of the timely intervention of the elements of the Rapid Intervention Unit-BIR, dark clouds would have surrounded Garoua. Hundreds of tired were burnt on the bridge with the intention of causing havoc and untold damages. Allegations are rife at that the main target was late President Ahidjo’s daughter who had staged a political rally at Lagdo and was on her way to Garoua. However, according to classified sources, a group known as ATM, (Anti-Amina) is bent on frustrating her campaigns in the Northern Region. Unconfirmed sources say the youths who are estimated in hundreds are certainly pro-Iya and pro-Marafa who have decided to take the laws into their hands. Sources have confirmed that yesterday dramatic twist is raising a lot of unanswered question on the safety of the late President’s daughter. The activists we gathered have vowed that they will not sit to watch Northerners being reduced to null. Yet security measures we gathered have been stepped up to ensure the safety of politicians in that part of the country. Others are suspecting that Bokom Haram infiltration as an undeclared curfew has surfaced in the city.
