Cameroon: Maroua Main Market Shutdown!

By Eric Tataw – Wednesday October 30, 2019.

Police officers try to contain angry traders at the Maroua Main Market, Cameroon.

The Maroua main market in the capital of the Far North Region of the Central African country, Cameroon has been shut down, National Telegraph has confirmed.

Business persons have taken to the streets, Wednesday October 30, 2019, to decry the undue extortion by a Gendarme Officer, a local Journalist on the spot has told National Telegraph.

Business persons say whenever their goods arrive from neighboring Nigeria, this Gendarme Officer collects their goods and resells them to some traders in the market.

This act they say is illegal, ridiculous and unacceptable as the officer is enriching himself at the detriment of the traders who are forced to pay heavy taxes.

For that reason, the Maroua Central Market has been shut down while the said officer has been taken away by his colleagues, eyewitnesses in the market have testified.
