The incident occurred on the night of Tuesday, June 14, 2016 around 9:00 PM while the master of the place was traveling abroad.
The home of the Minister of Public Health (MINSANTE), André Mama Fouda, located at the Obobogo neighborhood in Yaounde, was visited by thugs on the night of Tuesday, June 14, 2016.
According to the daily newspaper Mutations of Thursday, June 16, 2016, one of the guards who had been tied up by the thugs said that “one of the three bandits climbed the fence of the house by the back wall. It was he who tied up the guards before opening the gate to his accomplices. “
Another source close to the Minister of Public Health indicates that the wife of Mama Fouda was beaten. “It’s hard, though, to have a clear idea about the losses suffered by the MINSANTE in this other coup. For some, only a large sum of money was taken away by criminals. While other witnesses have reported the disappearance of valuable jewelry and firearms, “said Mutations.
Several elements of the Special Rapid Intervention Team (ESIR) police were deployed in the area after the incident. Those who had spent the night on patrol in the area were calling all passers of the lane that leads to Mama Fouda’s resident, we learn.
This is not the first time that theft is perpetrated at André Mama Fouda’s. Last year, he was taken at the residence of the presiding Association for mutual aid and solidarity of the elites and forces of Mfoundi, with a significant amount of money collected by the association for soldiers and populations of the Far North Region, victims of abuses of the Boko Haram sect.
In 2012, an investigation of the Repères newspaper reported that following repetitive flights, more than 300 million CFA francs had been stolen in the Villa of Mama Fouda, at Obobogo in Yaounde.
