Monday August 13th goes in record as one of the worst ghost town day(s) in the English speaking regions of Cameroon.
The ghost in Buea paid a “vandalism visit” to the head office of Ecobank, Molyko.
Report on shuimonews table says unknown individuals attacked the financial institutions and partially destroyed its giant billboard just beside the main road, early today. This happened, sources confirm, in the presence of a helpless guard who could do nothing to stop the onslaught.
“I peeped through the window but could not identify any of the attackers. They were furious, cursing and insulting the bank as they vandalised the bill board. These individuals were also armed. This scared me from making an outside venture. I think this is a warning to any financial institution in Buea.” an eye witness told Shuimonews.
The reason for this attack is still to be established given that Ecobank was closed.
There was equally an attempt to block the stretch of road near the said bank and somewhere around check point, Buea.
It should be noted that financial institutions in Buea had signed an undertaking, sanctioned by the mayor of Buea to operate on ghost town days. Since the said undertaking was signed these financial institutions in Buea had respected ghost town to the latter, including the government owned NFC bank.
Government officials , including the mayor of Buea, Mr.Ekema Patrick Esunge are still to make a public pronouncement to this mishap.
