Cameroon: Arrested for Robbing Chinese Business Man

Three suspected bandits; Ibrahim Nsangou Wandji, Mohamed Nforen and Ibrahim Garba have been caught with a toy gun.

They were arrested behind the Fire Fighters Brigade in Akwa on Thursday at about 11:30am. They have just raided the residence of a Chinese businessman, Zhang Jianhe and were about dispossessing him of some items when occupants up the storey began screaming. Before they tried to escape, surrounding neighbours and other residents closed up on them, helping police on routine patrol to arrest them. On hand was a toy gun they had used to frighten their victim. Zhang told the police that on December 29, five armed robbers broke into his residence and collected the sum of CFA 3 million F, a mobile phone valued at CFA 650.000 and the keys of his vehicle of mark M.L. The men claimed to have assaulted him last December. With the toy gun, the three were taken to the judicial police for investigations to completely dismantle the gang.
