The Governor of the North West region, Adolphe Lelé Lafrique has reportedly been attacked by supposed Ambazonia fighters while on a back-to-school campaign.
Reports say Governor Lelé Lafrique came under attack on Monday July 28, during the traditional ghost town day, on his way to Nkambe in the Donga Mantung Division, to encourage parents to send their children to school.
Fierce gun bangs from boys who had seemingly waited for the governor’s convoy, greeted his entery to Kikaikiliki, but the security forces that accompanied him were able to arrest the situation.
Governor Lelé was attacked a second time by the Amba boys of Mah village in Kup subdivision in the Ndonga Mantung Division.
The fire exchange is said to have been tense, and unconfirmed reports say one of the governor’s driver was injured.
Despite the confrontation, the region’s chief administrator made it to Nkambe where he was treated to a grandiose reception by inhabitants, and traditional rulers, who promised to to send their children to school.
As Governor Adolphe Lelé Lafrique tours the region to preach school resumption, the Anglophone crisis keeps deteriorating. Schools which have been burnt down are yet to be rebuilt, and some students and teachers have been displaced owing to the socio-political imbroglio.
