A man prevented his wife from boarding a flight to Paris at the Yaoundé Nsimalen airport last Thursday. The lady whose names we are withholding had gone through airport security and was waiting for the time to initiate the formalities for her boarding when her husband arrived and handed over their marriage certificate to the airport police officers who later denied the woman access to the plane.
The 32-year-old wife tried to leave her 39-year-old husband with their her 4 children and taking more than half of their family savings of over 2.5 million CFA francs from their credit union account. The husband, originally from the West region, is a taxi driver and the owner of several others. He was informed of the secret project by his wife’s best friend. Feeling betrayed, the husband hurried to Yaoundé Nsimalen airport on the day of the flight with their marriage certificate and managed to block his wife’s trip to Europe.
Cameroon Concord News gathered that the lady, who hails from Douala in the Littoral reportedly, met a man via Face Book who had promised her a better life and marriage in Europe. After several virtual exchanges, the young lady decided to make the trip. After the drama last Thursday, the husband, decided to seek divorce. But the two families took steps to bring back the serenity and the idea of divorce has been dropped.
