A 57-year-old woman by the name of Marie France Mbeya killed her sister-in-law after being promised the sum of 500 million FCFA on a Facebook page.
According to reports, the 57-year-old brought her sister-in-law to Mendzang hotel, located around the Biyem-Assi high school in Yaounde, Cameroon’s capital city, where she killed her by hitting her on the head with a bottle.
Sources reveal that she returned to the hotel with a box containing a machete the following day at around 10 pm.
She made use of the machete to cut the body into pieces, after which she parked the remains in the box and headed out of her room.
“Noticing she had difficulties in transporting the heavy box, a worker at the hotel opted to help the woman, but she vehemently refused. This left the hotel worker suspicious,” narrated an eyewitness.
It is in this light that the worker, alerted other workers of the hotel who insisted that the woman, opens the box so they could see what it contained but she refused. She insisted that the bag contained food and nothing else.
However, the hotel workers forced the box out of her hands when they discovered it was actually the dismembered corpse of a human being.
When interrogated, the woman indicated that joined a Facebook page where she was asked to deposit the corpse of a human being at a certain location in exchange for the sum of 500 million FCFA.
“I am in a meeting where I have been owing 4 million CFA. I asked my husband to give me the money but he said does not have it,” Marie France revealed in a viral video while explaining why she needed the money.
Upon learning of the crime, law enforcement officers and the mayor of Yaoundé 6, Jacques Yoki Onana went to the scene.
Meanwhile, the body of the victim has been deposited at the morgue of the Central Hospital of Yaoundé.
