Mamfe, 01 June, 2021 / 8:58 pm (ACI Africa).
The Cameroonian Catholic Priest who has secured his freedom after 10 days of captivity says he is “hale and hearty.”
Addressing a gathering of Christians at St. Joseph Cathedral of Mamfe Diocese shortly after his release Tuesday, June 1, Fr. Christopher Eboka who had been abducted May 22 said, “I am very Happy; the Lord has done it for us. As you can see, I am very fine. Nobody has touched me. I am hale and hearty.”
“I thank the Almighty God for making it possible for me to regain my freedom. I thank you all for your prayers and for everything,” Fr. Eboka said.
The Cameroonian Cleric went missing May 21. In a May 26 statement, the Chancellor of Mamfe Diocese, Fr. Sebastine Sinju, indicated that Fr. Eboka who had “left Mamfe town for a brief Pastoral trek … to some Mission Stations of the Cathedral Parish” had been “taken hostage on May 22, 2021 by some separatist fighters.”
