Hundreds of anglophones, especially youths, residents of Kosala, Kumba 2 subdivision, are today, Sunday 23rd July 2022 spending the second day at various police detention cells in Kumba following a massive arrest on Saturday by a mixed security unit.
Motorbikes; especially commercial motorbikes, and push trucks were carted away by the security forces.
