The lifeless body of a three-year-old girl was dropped off by a woman, just out of a taxi in Douala.
The scene takes place in the Logbaba district, a district of the3rd arrondissement of Douala on December 23, 2021. According to several testimonies, "a lady got out of a taxi and left a package near a garbage can. It then turned out that the said package was in fact the remains of a girl of about 3 years old."
"A woman arrived this morning shortly before 7 a.m. in a taxi. She came out, put down the package she had in hand and left immediately. At first, we first thought it was waste, "says a witness quoted by Actu Cameroun. Driven by their curiosity, some passers-by decided to open the package. Great was their surprise.
"Wrapped in a white cloth holding both curtain and tablecloth, and then in a wider turquoise fabric, the body had a painful look to look at. Distended neck, head arched backwards as if the neck were broken, a small hand closed on a piece of fabric and bare feet…
The show caused a stir among passers-by and other onlookers on the scene," reports Cameroon Tribune.
The remains of the girl were removed by the services of the district town hall of Douala IIIe.
