Cameroon: Kenyan Missionary Killed in Mamfe

After the killing of the US missionary in Bamenda, a Kenyan missionary, Cosmas Omboto Ondar of the Roman Catholic church has been killed at the entrance of his parish in Mamfe, Southwest region of Cameroon on Wednesday, November 21, 2018, at around 3 pm by the Cameroon military forces.

Bishop Andrew Nkea over a telephone interview described the killing;

"I went to Kembong myself to meet the Christians who were with the father Cosmas at the time he was shot. They explained to me that there was a military vehicle that was coming into the village and the soldiers were shooting at random as they drove into the village. The Father tried to run into the church but was shut at the door of the church while other Christians ran to the back of the church;. I counted twenty-one bullet holes at the front wall of the church".

The Minister of Communications said Father Cosmas was killed by the separatist group but the Bishop of Mamfe Diosis denied this report and insisted that the Cameroon military was responsible for the death of Fr Cosmas.

The Bishop went on the reveal that many who were asked to return from the bushes were forced to flee into the bushes as there is no hope of security in their villages.
