Cameroon’s Minister of Territorial Administration Paul Atanga Nji on Thursday stressed on the need for the identification of gun holders in the country amid rising insecurity.

“It is extremely important to identify all those who are coming to purchase weapons. The rules must be respected for the interest of the nation,” Nji said in the capital Yaounde during a rare meeting with owners of gun shops.

Sale of weapons for self-defence has been banned in Cameroon indefinitely, Nji said.

The meeting was summoned following an upsurge in criminal activities in Yaounde and the country’s two Anglophone regions of Northwest and Southwest where a prolonged separatist conflict is in progress.

Gun holders in the Central African nation must obtain an “authentic” authorization from the government and defaulters will be punished, Nji said. Enditem
