The Bamenda 3 council hall, situated beside the main Council building in Mile 4 Nkwen, was burnt to ashes on Saturday, September 30, 2023, by 1:30 AM.
Everything in the council hall was razed to ashes, sources told CNA.
No firefighters showed up to put out the flames. Only the military and a few people around the Council premises tried to put out the fire, the source narrated.
The Bamenda 3 council, the lone surviving of the SDF party in the North West region has been doing all it could to restore peace in the municipality, reunite the people separated by the ongoing Anglophone crisis, promote inclusiveness in the socio-economic, and cultural aspects and most essentially to enhance development as well as well-being in the municipality.
A Council worker told CNA that surrounding residents heard noises around the building before it went up into flames. They suspect it was an arson attack.
