Millitary men brutalise journalist in Yaounde

A journalist of the Afrik 2 radio station based in Yaounde, is reported to have been inhumanely dealt with by millitary men, cameroon-info.net relates.

Polycarpe Essomba, the Director General of the media organ, made it public in his Facebook post on the 26 May, that one of his journalists, Bertrand Mvondo had been molested by unscrupulous men of the law.

According to the story the DG told, Bertrand Mvondo, a sports reporter of the concerned radio station, had gone to cover a Division 2 championship match at the millitary football stadium in Yaounde.

It happened that, a dispute erupted between a club president and a uninformed officer. Bertrand Mvondo being a journalist put his camera in use. The military man did not welcome the idea of taking images of their dispute, so he asked the reporter to stop and delete all the images he had taken.

Afrik 2's sports journalist stood on his grounds, saying no such thing will happen. In reaction to Bertrand's resitance, the enraged soldier called his colleagues who together with him, mercilessly inflicted pain on Polycarpe Essomba's employee.

The DG further added that, they will make sure the authors of this irresponsible act pay for it.
