The Governor of the South West Region Bernard Okalia Bilai has ordered all administrative and security officials within his jurisdiction to step up security measure amidst the upsurge of violence.

In a fax message addressed to the five Senior Divisional Officers in his region of jurisdiction, Bernard Okalia Bilai ordered them to take measures to erect security and major control posts in strategic areas of the town.

This is in a bid to counter the upsurge of violence and the numerous kidnappings registered of late in the South West Region.

Thus, security forces will ensure all passengers will be identified along the highway and their vehicles thoroughly searched, the Governor said.

The Buea-Kumba higway has been blocked since Friday night after armed men took control of sections of the road and erected road blocks and barricades. Even a shoot out with security forces has still not cleared the road for movement.
