“In October 2016, I fell sick so I asked for permission from my boss, the captain of our unit in Kousserie to go to a hospital in Garoua (CHU) in order to carry out some medical tests. He gave me four days. At the hospital, the doctor asked me to wait for five more days before I could have the results. Looking at the situation at hand, and discovering that I had no means to pay my fare back to my work post and then to the hospital again after five days, I begged my boss to understand the circumstances of my prolonged stay, but he refused.
I had no choice but to wait for those five days. On the sixth day, I took the results and left for Kousserie. On reaching there, the captain had already sent my message to Yaounde for absence from work in times of war. My salary was suspended and I equally had to answer before the military tribunal.
I stayed calm even though I still needed more money for my treatment. I begged for permission again from our head, who refused again. I went to another captain who was not under our unit and explained my situation, then he gave me 15 days. I travelled and I came back when I had to return, in 15 days.
When I came back, the head of our unit was not happy with the fact that I took my problem to another person. I had no place in the office for over a month. After the one month, I was reconsidered but under strict conditions for more than 30 days which I humbly accepted.
In early March 2017, I missed the promotion of Gendarme officers to higher ranks. Frustrated, I made up my mind to go to our boss’s office on Friday to ask him to at least reinstate my salary. All of a sudden he ruthlessly chased me out of his office and even brandished his pistol at me.
I went out quietly and looked for a well loaded AK47. Afterwards, I came back to the office and shot the captain. Going outside, I saw the secretary trying to escape, I equally gave her own dose of bullets. I also shot one of my gendarme mates but before I did that, I told him “my man forgive me, between you and I, there is no problem”.
Somewhere behind the building, two female gendarmes were discussing with a woman who lived beside. I shot the woman. The other two started running. One of them while running, hit an obstacle, fell down and started begging “please don’t kill me I’m getting married in November” she pleaded. Despite that, I hit her with six bullets. Her colleague sought refuge in a nearby police station. I followed her there and asked the authorities to release her to me. They refused saying “this is not a gendarmerie station, go and wait for her at the gendarmerie”.
The reason why I killed the two ladies was because they were the ones fuelling up my situation with the captain. They did not call to inform me that a message about me had been sent to Yaounde and they also spent their time telling the captain everything that I did in town”.
