Two Cameroonians citizens aged 37 and 39 have been arrested in neighboring Gabon for allegedly trafficking fake bank notes across the Central African Country.
The two men, Sidoine Fogang Tsasse and Charly Oyane Owono were arrested by the Gabonese authorities since August 5, 2021.
The fake bank notes in question are said to have been smuggled into the country from Cameroon by the duo, and spent in various business places in Libreville, the capital of Gabon.
The two suspects were singled out when one of them went out shopping in one of Libreville’s business centers. The shopkeeper found out the money he had was fake and so alerted the police who nabbed him.
An investigation was opened and his house searched. More fake notes were also discovered inside his home, reports say.
Both men are expected to be taken to court where they will be tried and sentenced if guilty.
