Cameroon: Manhunt Underway For Five Armed Robbers Who Reportedly Robbed An Express Union Agency In Obala

Five  armed robbers on Saturday, April 23, 2016, attacked the Express Union money transfer office at Ombolbigana on the southern exit of Obala in Lékié Division of the Centre Region, on the Yaounde-Bafoussam Highway.

According to the Commissioner of the Obala Public Security Police Station, Superintendent of Police Emmanuel Nkfurkwi, the incident took place at about 1.30 am. One of the men entered the office, saying he wanted to transfer 150,000 FCFA to a relative. It was while he was “filling” the form that his four colleagues joined him one after the other, the Commissioner explained.


They then held the day watchman, all four women employees and two customers, at gunpoint, collecting seven phones from them. They also beat up the cashier with the back of a machete, obliging her to hand over the keys to the safe. After emptying the safe of 876,000 FCFA, the five robbers drove off in a Toyota V6 with Chassis Number 0008X, probably a fake one, according to police.
