Two children aged three and five years old, have been discovered dead at their aunt’s home in the Bamessingue village, Bamboutos Division of the West region.
The two were sent from Douala, where their parents are based, to spend the third term holiday with their aunt.
Shockingly, they will not return home, as they were announced dead, with just about a month left for school to resume.
“I left the house in the morning, the children were there, all doing well, there was no problem. When I came back, I got into the house, I saw the one aged three years, she was lying down, with foam coming out of her mouth…I called her name and she did not respond. I then decided to shake her, and discovered she was already dead” said the man of the house where the children lived.
“At that time, I heard how the other one was coughing inside, I went in and saw him vomiting. Since he was still alive, I had to hurriedly take the bike and carry him to the departmental hospital. For him, it was also already late” the man added.
“The doctors at the departmental hospital, after conducting checks, made me understand that the anus…that the child was raped.”
Investigations are being carried out to bring to light the perpetrator of the hideous act.
