Cameroon – Yaounde: A Canal 2 Journalist given the beatings of his life by thugs

Written by Deckson N.

Almost beaten to death and left in a gutter at the Melen neighborhood last Saturday, Tabie Clarkson is in critical condition.

He looks like a victim of mob justice. Swollen face to the left eye, a serious fracture of the jaw and right arm, numerous bruises in the back, feet and body and several broken teeth. It is in this state deemed critical by doctors that Tabie Clarkson, former Deputy Editor at Radio Siantou (RTS) is now.

The man, we learn from the daily Le Messager on newsstands this Monday, July 11, 2016, was found lying in a pool of blood by passers-by and taken to a health facility last Sunday at dawn. While he returned home in the night of Saturday, he was squeezed by a group of robbers whose violence and animosity equaled the critical state in which he was abandoned.

To believe to sources close to the victim, the incident occurred at Melen neighborhood. After brutally molested and stared, his tormentors he thinks he can identify stripped of his identification and his cellphone. To believe him, he almost lost his life for reasons that have so far not been elucidated. Currently employed at the private television channel Canal 2 International, the unfortunate who could undergo surgery, runs the risk of losing the use of his left eye, the paper says.

However, this aggression convene a rain of questions. “If the unfortunate says to recognize his executioners, was it so simple assault or a setup?” Asks the newspaper. Presented in his business as a professional, a humble man, what could really push this individuals to attack him? For now, after getting help for writing a complaint, the former member of the Communication Committee of the Cameroon Athletics Federation has been admitted to intensive care in a hospital whose name has not been revealed for security reasons.
