According to L’Oeil du Sahel published on August 8, 2016, three people were abducted in the night of 5 to 6 August at the home of the businessman Marcel Nono Flaubert, located at the Ngoumi junction.
The paper said that “according to security sources, the kidnappers arrived around 11:45 PM and search the house thoroughly before taking with them Bakam Fosso, 28, wife of Nono Marcel Flaubert, Fouamouwe Henri, 31, and Mewa Laure , 18 “. The kidnappers were quick to give news. The next day, we learn, they called twice to require payment of a ransom of 100 million FCFA.
“They called me twice in the day on August 6, 2016 with a Nexttel number: early morning and at 11:45 AM. They say to expect the sum of 100 million FCFA in a short time. But where would I take all this money? This is impossible. I’m off to Touboro, as I speak. That’s when I get there I can see more clearly, for all this happened in my absence. I was on the side of Yaounde, where I spent over a month. That’s all I can say because the big people in the house that could give me reliable information are the very ones who are taken hostage. That’s when I’ll be there I could possibly glean information. For now, I said all I knew, “said Nono Marcel Flaubert.
The forces of law and order are already in pursuit of the kidnappers, although it is very early to talk of any serious track. “The warning was given to us around midnight by the family of the hostages. We immediately mobilized our members and triggered a search immediately. We were hoping to catch them in their flight, but this has not been the case. But nevertheless, we do not intend to give up. We continue the research and they will eventually be, sooner or later caught, “admitted to L’Oeil du Sahel security sources.
