Police in Yaoundé have identified the body found behind the Presbyterian Church at Nkolbison as that of Revered Ewala Jeremiah who served as Parish Pastor in the Nkolbison congregation. Police hinted Cameroon Concord News that the death was deemed suspicious.
According to an earlier message posted on social media by the Presbyterian Secretary for East Moungo North, Rev. Emmanuel B. Masok, Pastor Ewala Jeremiah went missing since Tuesday the 19th of December 2017.
Search efforts earlier had included calls and messages send to his cell phone. The body will be examined medically for positive identification. At the moment, Anglophone Christians in Yaoundé do suspect “foul play.”
Rev Ewala Jeremiah’s demise comes after that of Bishop Jean Balla of the Diocese of Bafia. Our Yaoundé city reporter who contributed to this report pointed out that “Cameroon is experiencing too many ritual killings.”
