At the origin of this commotion, an attack led by a squad of mototaximen coming from the side of Ngousso, and doc of the capital. We learn that they came from the Manguier district. “ I went down to Soa, and when I came back up, I noticed that there was a pack of benskiners behind me; I gave way, they passed, armed with clubs and machetes. That’s when I realize something is wrong. They continue, and I realize that they are threatening and beating the other bensikers. They arrived towards Wague (a private school in Nkolfoulou, editor’s note)), broke up businesses, then turned around. This is where my passengers and I abandoned the car to take shelter in a shop», says a transporter on the Yaoundé-Soa line. “ Arriving at Nkolfoulou, they pursued the benskiners in the area they were hitting and they fled.
