The body covered with wounds, scars, sadness invades the faces of all those who lay eyes on Germaine, aged 42.
All in tears, she claims to have suffered all kinds of physical abuse, sometimes with sharp objects inflicted by her companion who is now on the run. Cutlass, punches, kicks, his body had turned into a puntching ball for his executioner.
The last caning almost cost him his life, Germaine lost consciousness and had a broken rib. She then found refuge in the family home in the Gonsoua district in the 2nd Sub division of Douala. She reports that her partner went into a rage on Saturday, August 21, 2021 after spending all day at the bedside of her only sick son, from a previous relationship.
The couple had planned to go to a wedding, except that tired of the wait, their partner went without her. She arrived at the ceremony a few hours later. When he returned home, his suffering began. She was severely beaten to the point of unconsciousness. Germaine’s relatives say that she has been living this suffering with her man for 10 years. The latter, while she says she had a miscarriage recently, accuses her instead of having gotten rid of the pregnancy.
The man who is wanted by law enforcement today is named Dieudonné Akodia, a security officer. He is also accused of attacking neighbors who were trying to rescue Germaine. This one, who is writhing in pain, does not even have the means to consult a doctor, in order to assess the extent of her wounds, she hands the house to souls of good will.
