The corpse of a French citizen was on Thursday discovered at the Kotto neighbourhood in the Douala V subdivision, sources have said.

Sources say the French citizen must have died by hanging but it is not clearly if he committed suicide or it was a criminal act committed by men of the under world. Neighbours testify they had not seen the man for the past two days but could not tell if stranges made way into his residence.

Security dorces were immediately alerted as they arrived the scene and collected corpse for post mortem as investigations continue to determine the cause of his death.
