On the invitation of Yves-Michel Fotso, Colonel Justin Mitlassou and Lt. Col Charles Ndongue from the Presidential Security unit visited the Boeing construction plant in Seattle, Washington State between September 8-12, 2001; where they were received by GIA President Russell Meek, March Goodrich of Boeing and Fotso. The two Presidential envoys were shown a plane under construction and told the plane will be delivered latest March 29, 2002 in Georgetown, Baltimore in Maryland.
When they returned to conduct the first test flight on April 5, 2002, all they could take back to Yaoundé was a set of keys purported to be the plane’s keys and the Marquette of the BBJ-2, which they never saw till this day. Chief Ephraim Inoni was never a part of this arrangement!! He deserves his freedom and deserves better.
