Roman Catholic Priest in Southern Cameroon Found Dead Inside Home

Roman Catholic priest Augustine Ndi serving with the Diocese of Mamfe at Nguti was found dead on Wednesday inside his room. The Roman Catholic priest once was the Parish priest in the late 80s and early 1990s at the Saint Joseph Parish in Mamfe. He also served in Akwaya and was reported to fell out of Bishop Emeritus Francis Lysinge’s favor.  Police reliably informed some newsmen that they were treating the death of the priest as suspicious.

It was also learned that the now deceased Roman Catholic priest had openly supported the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium and in several of his homilies promoted the restoration of independence in Southern Cameroon. His body revealed no sign of illness or fatigue as reported by Medics who done the examination. The catastrophe continues within the Catholic Church.

As of this time, authorities still have no clue as to how and who killed Father Abbe Djama who was similarly found dead in his room like Augustine Ndi and Bishop Jean Marie Balla whose body was found in the waters of Sanaga river.  CPDM government officials including the Holy Roman Catholic Church are keeping their silence.

Leaks regarding the results of the autopsy of Bishop Balla reveal that his genital organs were mutilated and his left arm broken. There was no drop of water found in Balla’s lungs. There were signs of torture visible on his body. Also, his sandals were worn upside down which led to the conclusion that the death was neither of natural death nor suicide by drowning.

Uncertainty prevails as a Malian fisherman claimed that it was he who found the body of Bishop Balla floating above the water and before calling the rescue teams tied it on a foot of a tree, while a Rear Admiral of the Cameroonian Navy declared that his team had recovered the body. Meanwhile, the Vatican has assigned to a new post in Indonesia its ambassador Monsignor Prioro Pioppo from Yaoundé.
