So far so not good in Cameroon on election day [Photos]

Presidential elections in Cameroon took place on Sunday with Paul Biya, one of Africa’s longest serving presidents seeking to extend his 36-year rule.

In a post-election statement released by the Electoral Commission, vote counting is currently underway and the results would be released within fifteen days.

Security in the highly volatile Anglophone regions was beefed up and this constituted to a very low voter turnout due to fears from locals.

Photos and videos of empty ballot boxes at polling stations shared on social media proved people weren’t too keen on exercising their franchise.

Below are some more photos of what transpired on Sunday:
