AFRICA/CAMEROON - Head of the “Catholic Immaculate Conception” clinic in Njmafor in Bamenda murdered

Wednesday, 8 November 2023 missionaries killed

Yaoundé (Agenzia Fides) - A member of the Congregation of the Sons of the Immaculate Conception was killed in a road attack in Cameroon.
Brother Cyprian Ngeh was stabbed to death in the Ndamukong district of Bamenda on the evening of November 7th. He was a nurse and director of the Catholic Immaculate Conception (CFIC) clinic in Njmafor. He was attacked on his way back to the hospital after accompanying a member of his team home. Bamenda is the capital of Cameroon's northwestern region, one of the country's two English-speaking regions, which has been in a war since 2016 to separate from the rest of the predominantly French-speaking country. The hospital where Brother Cyprian worked "is specialized in the care of mothers and infants and aims to provide the population, especially expectant mothers, mothers and newborns, with quality service and not only medical but also human and spiritual accompaniment for those who live in a situation of suffering," reports the Dokita association on its website, which supports the humanitarian works of the missionaries of the Congregation of the Sons of the Immaculate Conception throughout the world.
