17, November 2017
The National Assembly building at Ngoa-Ekelle has suffered its third fire since its construction. But that which occurred yesterday, November 16, 2017 remains the most serious.
Cameroon Concord News gathered that it took about three hours to completely extinguish the fire that broke out around 9 pm yesterday.
The fury of the flames consumed the third and fourth floors before firefighters could control the spread of the flames. The fire was reportedly turned off shortly after midnight.
Some French Cameroun MPs, including the Honorable Cavaye Yegui Djibril, rushed to the scene and watched helplessly.
After 1995 and 2013, it is the third time since its construction that the glass house at Ngoa Ekelle is attacked by fire. The Francophone dominated security agencies have opened an investigation.
