The new spokesman for Republican police was in front of press on friday. Mathias Achedemessi, since it is from him, presented to the men of the media the results of the various interventions carried out by the elements of Yaya Soumaila in “antigang” operations’s context.
According to Mathias Achedemessi’s point, three key points illustrate the results obtained. These include:
