Victor Siksou, commander of the gendarmerie of Doualare in Maroua is being accused by his own elements.

The case has already been brought to the attention of the commander of the gendarmerie of the Far North Region, Colonel Nkameni Pamdjo. During a recent meeting with the head of the gendarmerie in the region, the gendarme Ndjidda in service at the Doualare brigade in Maroua publicly denounced the actions of his superior, reveals L’Œil du Sahel of August 29, 2016 .

The brigade commander sexually harasses my family. I did not count how many times that happened in the service. I’m not alone in suffering this attitude. All comrades are desperate, “denounced Ndjidda.

Another element of the same brigade approached by the newspaper warned that the situation could lead to a tragedy.

The high command must stop the actions of the gendarme, otherwise what happened in Mbalmayo and Tiko can happen here,” he said.

The main accused denies.

Ndjidda said publicly that I sexually harasses his wife and that I exaggerate on reports. Now, I do not know any gendarme woman in the brigade. They are all my children. I have problems with Ndjidda particularly because he locked a person in a cell without telling me and the person got sick and almost died, “says Chief Warrant Officer Victor Voksou.

Complainants were transferred to Yagoua and Makany. But the measures taken did not reduce the tension in the Doualare gendarmerie brigade. “For besides that nagging question of harassment, are also grafted corruption charges to the complaints made against the brigade commander Voksou Victor. According to the police on duty in the brigade, the brigade commander demanded of his elements assigned to the Joint control in Sécandé , an amount of 15 000 FCFA per day per policeman. But discord was born when the hierarchy strengthened the workforce in this strategic position, thereby reducing the individual envelopes of service gendarmes, “notes the newspaper.

The brigade commander would have seen the amount go down to 5 000 FCFA.

However, he warned, if a policeman failed to respect his orders, he would be sanctioned and suspended from the road and only assigned to guard the brigade,” he says.
