Exclusive: Inoni Ephraim in trouble after a journalist uploaded his video interview in Kondengui online?

Ephraïm Inoni was the Prime Minister of Cameroon from 8 December 2004 – 30 June 2009. On April 16, 2012 he was arrested for embezzlement and held at the Kondengui maximum security prison. In 2013, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison even though the prosecution had argued for a life sentence.

The Examining Magistrate, charged Inoni with swindling FCFA 1.4 billion. The money was said to have been the surplus of a huge amount of money that the National Hydrocarbons Corporation (SNH) disbursed for the payment of arrears related to the leasing of planes to CAMAIR. He was accused of grabbing the surplus when the money was paid through an account at the Standard Chartered Bank, which the former Prime Minister served at the time as Board Chair.

Chief Inoni, who is the traditional ruler of the Bankingli village in Fako Division of the Southwest Region, has been very quiet serving his time until March 8, 2016 when a footage of a video interview from Kondengui maximum security prison of him was posted online.

According to an anonymous source, the whole prison was  allegedly searched after the video was uploaded online. Chief Inoni was reportedly searched by the state soldiers.
