The former player is at the medical ward 216, Pavilion B of the Yaounde General Hospital.

Thanks to Samuel Eto’o Fils and the Minster of Defense, Edgar Allain Mebe Ngo’o, he was evacuated to France for treatment.

His health later degenerated when he returned from France, resulting from a hunger strike for his unpaid dues.

He was hospitalized at the military hospital and since then had not completely regained his health.
