The Lomami Company was formed in 1898 and in 1899 started forcing the local people to harvest rubber. In 1905 two white officers of the Lomami Company were killed by warriors from Yaboila. Mr. Pimpurnaux, District Commissioner of Aruwimi, led punitive expeditions. One of the Topoke men accused of the murder was hung at Basoko in November 1905.
