By Augustine Nyuykongi

Everything is said to have returned to normal at the University of Buea following yesterday’s explosion on campus. Some students of the Institution say classes have resumed and other activities as well.

Students, as well as administrative authorities of the school, were taken by surprise yesterday when an Improvised Explosive Device blew off inside the Amphitheatre 600 of University. At the time of the incident, first-year Economics students were attending their lessons in the hall. 

The blast injured at least 11 students in the Amphitheatre, with others picking up minor scars in the stampede caused by the explosion.

Tanjong Levis, a journalist with CRTV Buea, who coincidentally was on campus for a separate event, told us the whole institution was sent to a frenzy by the detonation. “The explosion was heard from where I was, but not too loudly. It didn’t raise any alarm regardless until the students started running from the Amphitheatre towards the staff canteen.” He revealed.

He also said the injured students were quickly rushed to the Solidarity Hospital, Molyko for treatment, except for one other student who was transferred to the Buea Regional Hospital for special attention. 

Many people have blamed the act Ambazonian separatists, however, the Vice-Chancellor of the University Professor Ngomo Horrace Manga remained neutral. According to the Vice-Chancellor, the culprits of the act would only be uncovered after thorough investigations.
