Separatist fighters and the regular army are reported to have exchanged gunshots early this Wednesday morning at the Food Market in Bamenda, North West region of Cameroon, sources have confirmed.

Reports say early this morning, gunshots from separatist fighters and forces of law and order could be heard from the Food Market in Bamenda meanwhile the town was experiencing a partial ghost town.

Reports further say the atmosphere in that part of the country has been tensed since a life imprisonment was slammed on the 10 Ambazonia leaders by the Yaounde Military Court, with separatists warning civilians from going out of their houses.

Some parts of Bamenda have been reportedly shutdown with many people struggling to leave the town for fear of the unknown.
