This crude, gruesome treatment is barbaric and condemnation. How on earth can such awkward attitude from the Gendarmerie elements of Cameroon at such a moment when human Right has become topical? This torture chamber discovered in Ndogbong, Douala is a typical example of the various detention centers across the Nation that have such torture chambers.
The disappearance of Ibrahim Chayi for more than a week,despite frantic, search efforts by relations across the Douala Gendarmerie cells, forced this shameful exposure.
Ibrahim Chayi before his kidnapping, was a drug vendor and his crime was that " He was selling fake drugs to his clients " He was kept in custody at the Gendarmerie at Ndogbong, where he was terribly tortured. On its Publication on the 22 of February, 2018, Nouvelle Expression detailed the presence of such torture chambers across Cameroon. " The arrested person was invited to the Gendarmerie by a plain clothed Gendarmerie element. This was on the 25th of January 2018.
The Plain clothed Gendarmerie element requested if he had Laroxyl, a drug prescribed for neurological disorder or Hypertension" He was then accused for selling fake drugs illicitly produced by himself. The family members were requested to pay an initial one million francs but had to pay 300,000 FRS just because he sold a fake drug.
The Operational Commander of the military for the Littoral was so disappointed at this shameful attitude. Such attitude according to him only helps to tarnish the image of the Gendarmerie and the Military in Cameroon.
