According to sources close to the case, we must go back to October 2018, when Alfred Bongo Ondimba, son of the former President of the Republic of Gabon Omar Bongo Ondimba filed a complaint against BGFIBank after the « disappearance » of 1.5 billion FCFA from the account of his notary office. It is therefore up to justice to say the law.
