Disputed Elections Lead to Rioting in Cameroon
On Oct. 27th, Cameroon police arrested dozens of protestors demonstrating against the re-election of incumbent president Paul Biya. The rally was attended by hundreds of locals calling for Biya’s 36-year reign to come to an end. Previous years have seen an upsurge in anti-government sentiment with the current regime often resorting to severe methods to quell opposition.

Almost any unauthorized protest with a considerable amount of people has the capacity to quickly escalate into larger uprisings as clearly demonstrated in the case of the rioting in Cameroon. The SKUNK Anti-Riot solution is a smart biological innovation, offering a very concentrated odor repellent released from a Riot Control Vehicle.
The substance is a 100% harmless, natural, and completely non-toxic liquid spray, that, with the viscosity of water, can be sprayed over a large area using a standard water cannon. The overpowering odor drives –and keeps rioters away, effectively shutting down an escalating riot.
In addition, it is the most cost-effective solution for Law Enforcement agencies concerned about keeping down budgetary expenses. Deployment of odor repellent is far less costly than any special riot control equipment or compliance weapon alternatives. Its use guarantees a substantial reduction in manpower expenses, as a lower amount of police officers can quickly and effectively restore order in large areas.
