Bags of money uncovered at residence of ousted Gabonese President’s son’s aide


After the coup in Gabon, revolutionaries reportedly uncovered suitcases and bags full of various banknotes in the residence of ousted President Ali Bongo’s son’s Chief of Staff.

They were found in Yann Ngulu’s house, the Chief of Staff to Nourredine Bongo, the eldest son of deposed President Bongo.‌‌

In the video making the rounds on X app (formerly Twitter) #Sprinter99800 posted on Thursday, the bags could be seen filled with bundles of CFA francs, dollars and Euros.

A group of top Gabonese military officers on Wednesday appeared on television to announce that they had taken power over the country following President Ali Bongo’s re-election after spending 14 years in power.

His father, Omar Bongo, was in power for 42 years. The Bongo family have been in power for a total of 56 years which led to the coup and has since caused a stir online.

Nourredine, who is the coordinator of presidential affairs that gave him the oversight of the administration, security and defence sectors, was also arrested on Wednesday for alleged corruption, embezzlement and treason.
