Molyko, Buea, Cameroon. December 2010 (Cameroon News) – Form Five Girl Disgraced Publicly For Stealing Mobile Phone
A form five girl in Molyko, Buea, has been disgraced after stealing a mobile handset. Erica was caught red handed at a crusade, from where the handset was stolen.
Reports say she arrived the crusade and was standing near a group of young men who belonged to the church organizing the crusade. The young men were so involved that one of them left his mobile handset near a loudspeaker a few minutes before prayers.
It is after the prayers that he noticed his phone was missing. All attempts to call on the person keeping the phone to confess and produce the phone went unheeded.
A woman who stood near Erica during the prayers recalled that Erica was fidgeting all the time: “when the man of God started, she was agitated and behaving as if she had a bad spirit.
That is why I did not hesitate. I pointed this out to the guys who searched her and found that she had hidden the phone in her bra. Before this, she succeeded to switch it off.”
Erica was then publicly disgraced before a large audience. It is reported that in explaining what had pushed her to the deed, she said it was the work of the devil.
