A statue of former French President, Charles de Gaulle has been destroyed in Douala. The attack on the statue was carried out by Andre Blaise Essama, the Cameroonian activist who recently built a statue of the late Dr. John Ngu Foncha and generated a national controversy.
Andre Blaise was recently released from prison after he orchestrated an attack on the statue of French General Le Clerc. Police said the incident, which was reported was being treated as criminal damage.
Andre Blaise Essama is now being considered the greatest Francophone Cameroonian of all time in a nationwide poll.
