Reports have it that, one of Cameroon’s Bishops, His lordship Andrew Nkea of Mamfe, has said according to what he observed and following eye witness accounts, the Kenyan priest who was gunned down in the Southwest Region of Cameroon, was murdered by government soldiers, who were shooting at random from their passing vehicle.
As Ndi Eugene Ndi of the “East African” reports, Bishop Andrew revealed that, Father Cosmas Omboto Ondari, a Mill Hill missionary, who was serving as the parochial vicar of the St Martin of Tours Parish, got “brutally and recklessly murdered” at the Kembong church.
“I visited Kembong Parish on Thursday, November 22 and personally counted 21 bullet holes on the church building… the blood of the murdered priest was still clearly seen on the cemented entrance, just at the door,” Bishop Andrew recounted.
He went on to call for thorough investigations into the crime committed against an innocent and peace loving missionary, adding that the culprits be brought to justice.
The Cameroon military have denied having any links to the murder, saying the Kenyan priest was killed by armed assailants.
