The Catholic Bishop of Mamfe Diocese in Cameroon has “vehemently condemned” the killing of innocent civilians following an attack at the new Layout Egbekaw, a locality within his Episcopal See.
The nine people who were Kidnapped on September 16 from St. Mary's Catholic Nchang Parish of Mamfe Diocese in Cameroon, including five Catholic Priests and a Nun, have been released.
A video has emerged on social media showing the five Catholic Priests, a Catholic Nun and three others Kidnapped in Cameroon’s Mamfe Diocese pleading with their Local Ordinary to secure their release.
Those behind the abduction of five Catholic Priests, a Catholic Nun and three others in Cameroon’s Mamfe Diocese are demanding a ransom of some US$100,000.00 in order to free them, a Catholic Archbishop in the Central African nation has told ACI Africa.
Catholic Bishops belonging to the Bamenda Province in Cameroon have termed as a “heinous act” that “has now crossed the red line” the September 16 arson attack on St. Mary's Catholic Nchang Parish of the country’s Mamfe Diocese during which five Priests and a Catholic Nun were among those kidnapped.
The newly consecrated Catholic Bishop of Mamfe Diocese in Cameroon has been encouraged to foster the virtue of hope in his Episcopal Ministry among the people of God in the Cameroonian Diocese.
