Trafficking of human bones in Cameroon is turning out to be a whole new phenomenon as numerous traffickers keep on being arrested with each passing day across the national territory.
On Friday, December 11, 2020, the police in Garoua arrested another individual engaged in human bones trafficking while he was on transit to Lom Pangar.
Bouba Aminou was arrested during a routine police check at the entrance into Garoua, as he travelled to Lom Pangar.
Police say he might have got away with his act and cargo had it not been for his suspicious agitations.
“He fell under the watchful gaze of a police officer who immediately noticed that he was trying to conceal a bag from being checked. When he was asked to give the bag for inspection, he rather threw it away and started fleeing. That was when the chase started and he was eventually caught,” narrated commissioner Mathew Claude Abondo.
The bag was discovered to contain old human bones.
At the time of this report, the human bones trafficker was under police custody.
