A Chadian trader stabs a Togolese soldier to death

A Togolese gendarme was fatally stabbed on Thursday by a Chadian trader who also injured a policeman. The Minister of Security and Civil Protection of Togo, Gal Yark Damehame, commenting on the case, communicated the circumstances of the tragedy.

According to him, the defendant is a Chadian, named Ousmane Mouhamed Aboubakar. The 51 years old is a thrift dealer at the big market in Lomé.

According to the press release, he “attacked with a knife two security force agents deployed within the security system of the large Adawlato market”.

Addressing the circumstances of this tragedy, Yark Damehame said that Mouhamed “went to the post located at the entrance to the Atikpodji market where he first stabbed a gendarme in the chest by surprise before wounding seriously his second, who is a policeman… then seized his victim’s weapon giving the impression of wanting to use it and thus creating a panic at the scene of the crime”.

Nevertheless, the attacker was brought under control by other agents alerted by the population and with the help of the population.

Unfortunately, one of the two injured officers succumbed to his injuries after being evacuated to intensive care at CHU Sylvanus Omlympio.

The Minister in charge of Security, thanking the population for its collaboration with the police, announced the opening of an investigation to elucidate the circumstances of the tragedy.

He probably snapped under pressure from the security forces and took things in his own hands. One family is now missing a husband, father, son, uncle, friend, colleague etc. So sad.

Togo-Yacoubou Moutawakilou, condamné à mort et exécuté pour son engagement pour le Togo

Depuis ce triste jour du 13 janvier 1963 où Sylvanius Olympio fut assassiné, tous ceux qui ont essayé d´affronter la dictature en se mettant sur son chemin, furent impitoyablement éliminés. La liste de tous ces martyrs, assassinés d´une façon ou d´une autre, est longue. Les nombreuses tentatives depuis le début des années ´90 pour humaniser le pouvoir d´état et le rendre aux Togolais, n´ont pas pu résister à la terreur militaire, seule légitimité de la dictature du père en fils.
