Lecturers of the University of Bamenda have reportedly suspended a strike action initially planned for this Friday and next Tuesday over persistent security threats on the lives of school officials and students in the North West region of Cameroon.

According to reports, the decision to suspend the strike is the outcome of a meeting held this morning between the lecturers and the Governor of the North West region, Adolphe Lele Lafrique on school campus in Bambili.

In a release issued earlier, the lecturers had announced they would embark on a peaceful strike against the persistent insecurity threats on both the lecturers and the students at the campus of the University of Bamenda in Bambili.

Reports say recently armed men attempted to assassinate the director of administrative affairs of the institution while on his way to the campus.

With the escalation of the crisis, such reports have been recurrent in the area. Many weeks ago, three female students were reportedly kidnapped by unidentified armed men before been released thanks to the intervention of security agents of the locality.
