A man by name Mantouo Tiatsop has been captured for posing as a Field Marshall in Douala, the economic capital of Cameroon.
Mantouo, popularly called “le maréchal papillon” reportedly acted as head of the inspection mission for vehicles in several parts of the city — before he was discovered recently.
“He had used the opportunity to train new gendarmes on how to control vehicles at checkpoints,” revealed a source.
His schemes were suddenly unmasked by the chief warrant officer of the Logbessou Territorial Brigade, Anthony Ankiabom, where he has been put behind bars.
Mantouo Tiatsop becomes the third man arrested for impersonation of government forces in less than one week.
A 47-year-old man and another young man in his twenties were recently arrested and put behind bars for faking their proffesion as military officials.
