In Nkoteng, a small town in the Centre region of Cameroon, the perpetrator behind the recent heinous murder of his 18-year-old in-law, Akamba Marie has confessed to his crime.

Donald Mevoungou Mevoungou, aged 21, brutally attacked his victim with a machete a few days back, precisely on March 16, 2024.

Reports say the young girl was alone at home with her 10-month-old baby and her 11-year-old sister when the merciless act took place.

It is equally revealed that the assailant, who happens to be her brother-in-law seized the opportunity to commit the abominable act while Marie’s mother was attending the funeral of a relative.
