Damaged vehicles at the accident scene

Causes of the assassination of the late Bishop Jean Marie Benoît Bala have not yet been explained  to the Cameroonian community  and another bitter pill have been forced down their throats. 

This was following an accident that occurred in the Convoy that was transporting the mortal remains of the late Bishop to Bafia, to be laid to rest. 

A Gendarmerie van was reported to have collided with a lorry.  The five passengers on board were immediately rushed to the hospital.  Two Gendarmerie offices reportedly died on the spot. 

However, Adjoudant Bouba Roger,  driver of the Gendarmerie Ambulance Motorcycle which had a head on collision with a truck is no more. 

Reports say he gave up the ghost at the Ekot Hospital in Yaounde. The other injured victims are undergoing intense medical care. 

While the shock remains unsettled, Cameroonians are still asking for answers.
