Dragon Yaounde FC winger Vivien Frédéric Koloto has been arrested and detained after footages of him molesting a police officer on duty at the historic Lycee Leclerc in Yaounde surfaced on social media.
Koloto, Dragon’s skipper for most of their Elite One matches during the 2022/23 season is said to have resisted instructions to leave the campus currently hosting end of course examinations, before resulting to molest the office as he attempted to physically get him off campus last Wednesday, May 3.
Police bosses were briefed on the incident, and they decided to detain the player.
Koloto has been behind bars at the Central Police in Yaounde since Wednesday and could be sent to a greater correctional facility while waiting for trials in the days ahead.
This is what Article 156 of the Cameroon penal code says about Violence against civil servants
“(1) Any person who commits violence or assault against a civil servant shall be punished by imprisonment of one (01) month to three (03) years and a fine of five thousand (5,000) to one hundred thousand (100,000) francs.
(2) The penalty shall be imprisonment for a term of five (05) to ten (10) years and a fine of twenty thousand (20,000) to five hundred thousand (500,000) francs, if the violence or assault is premeditated or if it results, even unintentionally, in injuries as provided for in Articles 277 and 280 of this Code.
We understand it’s ot the first time Koloto is involved in violence. Two years ago, he stopped a local football game at a neighborhood in Yaounde after entering the field to punch the match officials.
The former APEJES of Mfou forward, who scored for Dragon Yaounde against YOSA in a 2-3 defeat less than six weeks ago could face up to five years in Prison for this act.
