Bamenda, 26 August, 2021 / 10:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Following the attack on a Presbyterian Church in Cameroon’s Northwestern region last weekend, Catholic Bishops in the Central African nation have expressed their solidarity with victims of the attack that left one worshiper dead and others injured, including a Pastor.
On Sunday, August 22, gunmen attacked the Presbyterian Church Ntanfoang in Bali during church service killing one female worshiper and injuring others, among them, the Pastor.
“The National Episcopal Conference of Cameroon (NECC) expresses deep sadness following the armed attacks perpetrated in a Sister Church in Bali on Sunday 22 August, which resulted in the death of a Christian woman and the hospitalization of other faithful, including a pastor who was shot,” Catholic Bishops in Cameroon say in a statement issued Wednesday, August 25.
NECC members add, “On Monday 23 August, other acts of violence were recorded in ElakOku where houses were burnt down and properties destroyed.”
“We Strongly condemn these barbaric and desecrating acts and extend our spiritual and emotional closeness to the various victims,” the Catholic Bishops say in the statement shared with ACI Africa on August 26.
