The ghost towns are evidence that Anglophones have decided to resist Government’s manipulation and repression through passive resistance which is far more potent than war.
The Government has clearly refused dialogue and has continued to intimidate Anglophones. In the SW, the State authorities have embarked on closing down shops of individuals who respect the protests.

Over the last four months, the English speaking Regions of the North West and South West in the West African State that styles itself as the Republic of Cameroon have been the grounds of protracted protests.
