According to Lieutenant Colonel Guy Hervé Mvogo Abanda, head of the judicial research and fight against organized crime service, “the victim was surprised that day around 2 a.m., by an ambush cleverly orchestrated by armed men. They certainly wanted to seize his motorcycle but faced with his resistance, had no choice but to stab him.”
