Cameroonian football professional Samuel Etoo, is very angry with Jeune Afrique and France 24 for using him for their April fool prank.
The media organs presented Etoo as a future candidate of the 2018 presidential elections, an idea which the Cameroonian celebrated footballer did not like.
While the public had taken it serious, Samuel Etoo considers it an act of defamation "as a Cameroonian, I have always respected the institutions of my country. I think that something like the presidential elections of Cameroon, is so important to be taken this lightly" Etoo said
In the April fool article about the former captain of the indomitable lions, one could find excerpts such as, "Samuel Etoo can play as a scorer as well as other positions in the field...... I don't see why I wouldn't be able to occupy the post of the president of the Republic".
