The large sum of money was stolen from the MP’s home in Tokombere in the Far North region.
Two suspects were arrested after a complaint was lodged at the gendarmerie in Tokombere and an investigation was launched. According to media sources, they are a servant, the younger brother of Cavaye Yeguie Djibril, and a prominent member of the village chiefdom. Both were taken into custody.
In the framework of the investigation, they will be prosecuted for theft of 85 million CFA francs. As with Cavaye, 83, president of the National Assembly since 1992, hundreds of millions of CFA francs have been stolen from other high ranking personalities of the Republic in the past.
