There's relative calm in Bamenda after the head of a senior police officer, Nwana Paul Vawahat was dropped by suspected separatists around Mrs. Ngeng junction, causing panic and total shutdown of the town.

The incident occurred around 5 pm on Sunday October 20, where two people on board a motorcycle on high speed, deposited a bag on the street, and the head of Nwana Paul rolled out of it. A national identity card of the victim was also spotted around the head.

This caused panic within the town as some were seen rushing home, while businesses located in the quarter and other parts of the town immediately shut down for security purposes.

Nwana Paul who hails from Bali-Kumbat subdivision in the North West region has served in Bamenda for over 6 years and was popularly known too.

Reports say he had been kidnapped earlier that day around 2 pm after a short stop he made to the fourth district police office,where he once served.

Many are still in shock and filled with panic in Bamenda,as they expressed fear of a bleak future, following the murder of the police officer.

Armed separatists for the past two years, have been targettinv police officers and other military personnel. More than 100 military officials have been killed by the non state militia as a fallout to the crisis.

However, some civilians have been condemning the act, stating they are trapped whenever those murders are committed since the military hunts for the suspects within the communities, putting them at risk.
