In response, the Director of the Bamenda Regional Hospital, said a total of five victims ranging between the ages of 12 years and 20 years sustained severe wounds after the blast and were ferried to the Bamenda Regional Hospital through a helicopter.

Of the five, three have had both limbs amputated. One other amputated on the right limb and she lost her pregnancy and the fifth had her face almost shattered. All five of them have undergone a successful surgery and are responding to treatment. 

The female Mayors handed to the five survivors, pallets of water and some cash. They encouraged them to be positive while receiving their treatment.

In an appreciation tone, Dr Nsame Denis told the Mayors that the medical bill is footed by the Ministry of public health but the survivors need psychological support and food. 

He encouraged the Mayors to also visit other patients receiving medical care at the health institution.

The Association of female Mayors encompasses all female Mayors of the North West who seek to spread love in an atmosphere that has been characterised by hate for the last eight years.

The outing of the Mayors comes at the time when the world is preparing to celebrate the international Women's Day on March 8 under the theme; "Invest in women, accelerate progress."
