A female student on her way back home after studies last night was robbed of her belongings at the Ndokoti neighborhood in Douala. Unfortunately for the robber, it was not a good moment to strike as some bike riders were passing by and the girl raised an alarm.
About ten riders took off behind the robber and he took refuge at the Ndokoti cemetery but the riders were determined to settle scores with him. More riders flooded the scene and whole graveyard was soon lite by their head lights and behold their target was hiding under a collapsed tomb.
The girl’s belongings were handed over to her but the riders had not settled matters with him. The timely intervention of the police on the scene guaranteed the survival of the robber in question for they seized him from the cold hands of death and gave him another chance to see another day again.
One of the riders whose name we got as Fabrice says “enough is enough with these petty robbers who do away with peoples belongings around here, we wanted to set an example on this guy so that his friends should withdraw from this area but luckily the police rescued him.”
Ndokoti has been marked with rampant incidents of pick pocketing and petty robbery because of its strategic location and this has thus called for an installation of a police post there.
