A military police officer shot 5 year old Caro Louise Ndialle in the head. The incident sparked protests and ultimately the lynching of the officer.
Buea, Cameroon | Protesters took the street to show their hurt over the death of five year old girl Caro Louise Ndialle whom was shot in the head by a military police officer in Buea, Cameroon.
Close to 3,000 protesters took to the street with tree branches as a sign of peace.
In a statement, the Defense minister explained what happened at the checkpoint.
The vehicle’s driver initially refused to stop at a gendarmerie checkpoint and then tried to drive away from the officers.
That’s when, one of the officers fired shots at the vehicle in order to mobilise the vehicle.
Unfortunately, one of the bullets hit little Caro in the head. She died in the stop.
A little after that, the mob caught up to the military police officer and killed him.
“All they do is intimidate people. If you have an identity card, it’s a problem. If you don’t have an identity card, it’s a problem,” said one protester, who declined to give her name for security reasons
