After a brief dispute the Gendarmerie officer got the teachers violently brutalised, leaving the vice principal a certain Madam Mbock with an almost broken hand according to locals sources.
The violent scene created commotion on campus in early hours of the day and the school authorities alerted the DO for Douala IV and the Gendarmerie commander of the administrative unit.

The vehicle abandoned by the violent law enforcement officer was taken to the DO’s office, while the victim has been taken to the hospital.
