The divisional officer of Tiko sun division Mr. Asongwe Cletus has today November 5th 2018 signed a decree prohibiting the movement of motorbikes, cars and opening of nightclubs, bars etc in his sub division from 6 pm till dawn
The late night curfew which effectively grounds night activities in the sub division comes amidst rising insecurity there.
News of 7 CDC workers who got their fingers chopped off by Ambazonian fighters for defiling their ban by going to work in the corporation three days ago as well as other security concerns might have pushed the chief administrative officer of Tiko to rollout these measures to curb the rising insecurity there.
Issuing such restrictive decrees isn’t new in the entire Anglophone regions as governors, SDOs and other state officials have been issuing executive orders of their own almost every month as they battle to contained the crisis
But perhaps what is so surprising with Mr Asongwe Cletus’ decree is different administrative structures he copied in the document to as required by law
In the release, the DO copied the former ministry of territorial administration and Decentralization known by its French acronym as MINATD even though the ministry was disintegrated in the March 3 cabinet shakeup to two different ministries
