Cameroon Arrest Fraudulent Cooking Gaz Depot Owner

Reduce the quantity in a Gaz cylinder and redistribute in other empty cylinders to resell at FCfa 6,500 each. This is what Fidèle Fonkou, owner of a gas depot for 2 years in the suburbs of the Cameroonian capital-Yaounde, was doing. An activity dangerous and risky to the population living close by and detrimental to consumers.

He was arrested on 21 September 2016. “We have been carrying a surveillance on them for a month and two weeks now. When we had the confirmation of their activities, we sent our teams and around 4 AM (in the morning), we caught them red-handed”, the Departmental Delegate of the Ministry of Commerce for Mfoundi, Jules Obama, told the pro-government daily-Cameroon Tribune.

 

According to the officials in charge of the departmental delegation of Commerce for Mfoundi, this operator used to tampering with domestic gas cylinders will be tried in court, in addition to losing the authorisation which allowed him to operate in the domestic gas distribution sector in Cameroon.

Due to this lucrative activity for shady distributors, Cameroonian consumers have been constantly complaining about gas cylinders which officially weigh 12 Kg, but which are surprisingly often empty after only two or three days of use.
