Russian Mercenaries Kill Cameroonian Bizman In Central African Republic

A Cameroonian businessman who was identified as Abdourahim has been reported killed by Russian mercenaries

A Cameroonian businessman who was identified as Abdourahim has been reported killed by Russian mercenaries of the Wagner Security Group in Sagaini, a town situated not far away from Lamy-Pont town.

The incident happened on Tuesday, Dec. 14, according to local sources.

Sources in Sagaini told HumAngle  that since the arrival of Russian mercenaries in the town, most business people have left because of the exactions visited on them by the Russians.

“Abdourahim however decided to stay and continue with his business. Unfortunately for him, on Tuesday Dec. 14,  while on his way to Douala in Cameroon to buy supplies, he came face-to-face with the Russian mercenaries a few kilometres to Nguia-Bouar, precisely on the crossroad leading to Yidere, Baboua and Nguia-Bouar,” a source said.

“The Russian mercenaries took all his money and a quantity of gold he had on him. They eventually dragged him some metres into the forest and shot him to death. News of his assassination has sent shock waves throughout the town of Sagaini.”

A Central African Republic national who has been an interpreter for the Russians for about four months now has made the shocking revelation that 95 per cent of civilians the Russians come across on isolated roads always end up being killed or arrested and their possessions seized.
