Kenyan missionary was killed by terrorists, Cameroon Gov't says

Administrative authorities in Cameroon say they are tracking armed terrorists who killed a Kenyan missionary.

The man identified as Rev. Cosmas Ondari in a Washington Post report, was killed on Wednesday in the town of Eyumojock in the restive southwest region.

This comes as many missionaries and foreign workers continue leaving the area following other attacks.

The government of Cameroon and foreign embassies have urged foreign workers to leave the war-torn area.

On Saturday, Nigerians living in the Cameroonian capital Yaounde welcomed seven fellow citizens who fled fighting in the towns of Kumba and Kumbo.

Among them are Okafor Stanley, his wife Okafor Emmaculate Ngoze and their one-year-old baby.

Okafor Emmaculate Ngoze says she fled from Kumbo in the northwest after she and her husband were kidnapped by armed men and tortured until they paid a $6,000 (Ksh.600,000) ransom last week.
