Cameroon: Fecafoot warns against fake news to summon Indomitable Lions

The Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) has issued a communiqué urging the football community in Cameroon and abroad to be vigilant in the face of fake letters to summon players of the national senior male squad.

 In the communiqué issued on 12TH May, Fecafoot reiterated that the right to summon players was the exclusive priority of the general secretariat of the federation, based on a list of players drafted by the head coach of the squad.

The release comes as a response to a series of fake letters sent to some Cameroonian players and their clubs at home and abroad.

The letters are calling on the clubs to release their plays for a training session in preparation for series of matches the lions are to play soon.

 The letters are authored by a certain Paul Blaise Moussa. Jacques Haman, who plays for Victoria Club of Guinãeres in Portugal, is one of the players targeted by the letter, according to Cameroon Tribune(national bilingual daily).

Cameroon will play against Morocco on 10th  June in  the qualification for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Three days later they will clash with Colombia in an international friendly match before participating in the Confederations Cup in Russia.

The message invites people to keep Fecafoot posted if they run into anybody in possession of such fabricated document, via 222201928 or by email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Fecafoot ,however, used the communiqué to remind the public that it reserved the right to take legal actions against the perpetrator(s) of such act.

At a time when the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon are still celebrating victory after beating their all-time rival (the Pharaohs of Egypt) at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, the letters are seen by some as a an attempt todestabilize the peaceful den of the kings of the forest.

The 2-1 victory in Gabon had put Cameroon second on the classification table with five titles behind Egypt who have seven titles.
