Merlin, a serial killer
Monday December 16, 2019, Merlin Mpianga is alone on Boris's motorbike and finds himself in the village Mvada (located more than 50 kilometers from Mbell) on the axis Nguelmendouka - YaoundéAmong Samuel Tsigue one of his friends. It was by asking his friend for asylum that he confessed to the latter that he had accidentally killed his nephew the day before, in the forest.
An alibi that did not last long because of the reputation of the killer he built and the fact that he wanted to hide his crime. Samuel Tsigue agrees to offer hospitality to his old acquaintance, but while the assassin rests, he takes the opportunity to seize by telephone the gendarmerie brigade of Nguelmendouka. It is the latter who will come to question Merlin.
The first suspicions of the investigators will emerge as soon as the body of the victim is discovered: Boris lies in a pool of blood, with a thorax riddled with several bullets, the thesis of the accident therefore becomes inadmissible all the more since the murderer has everything a killer and is on his third assassination! Indeed, in 2005 he already had during a hunting party in the village Ebah, killed Govinal Mabé a hunter he teamed up with, and in 2011 he was charged with the murder of a Bororo breeder and buried his body in a termite hill.
For the time being, the uncle has been imprisoned in a cell of the gendarmerie brigade of Nguelmendouka while waiting to be presented to the public prosecutor in the chief town of the department at Abong Mbang to answer for his actions. Abruptly taken to life, Boris leaves behind two grieving wives and seven orphans.
