The population of Marche Tanko in the Bonaberi neighbourhood of Douala was yesterday shocked by the discovery of the lifeless body of a 66 year old woman murdered in cold blood in her own apartment. The body of the woman who goes by the name of Julienne Ngwenga and originates from loum in the Mungo division of the country was discovered by her neighbours. Reports say the door to her room was forced open by the neighbours after her child looked for her without any success.
“We were shocked when we discovered the body of this woman full of wounds and carefully locked up in her own room” says a panicking neighbour.
According to eyes witnesses, the body of the 66 year old woman was covered with more than five wounds believed to be knife wounds. They say, there is high probability that the murder could have been caused by a close member of the family.
“I am very sure that this murder has been carried out by a close relative of the deceased. It is not suicide. Somebody wanting to commit suicide cannot be able to give herself more than five knife wounds before dying. I am sure a member of her family is involved in this”.
Although reports also say the said Julienne Ngwenga was involved in a fierce quarrel weeks earlier with one of her neighbours who promised her hard times, many still think that her murder could be linked to someone else who knows the in and out of her 5 bedroom house.
