4 days travel ban within Cameroon’s South West region nullified today

The four days imposed travel ban by the governor of the South West region was nullified at 7 am today. 
Governor Bernard Okalia Bilai’s ban prohibited the movement of persons or any public gathering throughout the South West region from 9 Pm on Friday, 29 September to 7 am on Monday, 2 October 2017.
The governor said the move aimed at prohibiting public disorder.
His decision came at a time when citizens of the South West and North West regions were  planning a pro-independence protest on October 1 2017, to demand immediate independence of Anglophone Cameroon form La republic du Cameroon.
Governor Bilai’s travel ban included;

 -The total prohibition of the movement of commercial Moto-bykes. 
-The prohibition of the movement of persons and suspension of inter-urban transport between the different towns and localities.
– The closure of our territorial and maritime borders. 
-The total closure of all off-licences, bars, snack-bars and night clubs. 
– The prohibition of any public gatherings and assembly of more than four persons in any public location.
– The suspension of all activities at Moto-parks, sea or river ports and wharfs.
However, activities returned to normal from 7 am this morning, though very timidly.
Activities at Moto-parks have resumed, but some off-licences, bars, and provision shops remain closed.
