Simplice Nguemo jumped into the Nun river in the evening of June 20, 2016.

The outbreak of bird flu raging in Cameroon for several weeks has just caused the death of a man. Radio Equinoxe, a radio emitting from Douala reports this Thursday, June 23, 2016 that Nguemo Simplice, a breeder based in Foumban decided to commit suicide because of material losses suffered. He dreaded having to repay all the rest of his life the credit contracted from his bank. It is an explanation that the man in his forties left in the letter found in his car after his suicide.

The owner of a large farm in Foumban had parked his car on June 20 in the early evening near the tollgate of Foumbot. “The officers and petty traders at the toll plaza of Foumbot report that he parked his car on the sidewalk before entering the bush. We thought that he went to relieve himself in nature. But the next day the car of the man was still parked in the same place. We discovered a letter in which Simplice says he was going to rest, ” reported Radio Equinoxe. Our colleague also quotes his sister and a childhood friend to whom the deceased ever confided that he was going to die. Except that his interlocutors believed that Simplice Nguemo was joking.
