Policemen on Sunday 13th November in Yaounde assaulted journalists who wanted to interview the Lionesses and other match officials after a friendly 1-2 defeat from Twiga Stars of Tanzania.
Report says after the match, the journalists went to the section that the Communication Committee of the local organization of the AFCON had reserved for mixed zone interviews, but they were confronted with the Forces of Law and order who did not want anyone to trespass. The Forces of Law and order started brutalizing journalists, and Fils Daniel Injec from Radio Kiss FM was seriously wounded.
The journalists fought back and the when the situation became more chaotic, another group of policemen came in. Their arrival brought calm, but the journalists decided to boycott the interview. Consequently, no interview took place after the 1-2 defeat.
For the journalists, the uniform men should be called to order urgently before the start of the AFCON, which is just five days away especially as because this situation has been reoccurring since the reopening of the Amadou Ahidjo stadium.
