A well-placed source has hinted Cameroon Concord News that the Francophone Minister of Finance, Alamine Ousmane Mey reported a burglary in his ministerial department that took place between Thursday the 11th and Friday the 12th of May to the police. A security agent who confirmed the incident observed that the alleged burglars made away with several hundreds of millions of CFA francs including several documents classified as “top secrets” in the offices of the Minister and His private secretary.
Camcordnews understands the robbery took place without any breaking-in, an act that raises many questions. A highly placed civil servant at the ministry who spoke to our undercover reporter said many people have been seeking to know if Minister Alamine Mey and his secretary share offices with third parties or whether it is a job ordered by some “rogues” in Etoudi.
A journalist with the state radio and television who contributed to this report also noted that the perpetrators of the alleged burglary are not in the populous neighborhoods of Yaoundé city but are all lined up in the corridors of the Ministry of Finance.
