A 90-year-old archbishop has been abducted alongside eleven other people in a western Cameroon region.
The abduction was because of the conflicts between anglophone separatists and security forces.
Christian Tumi, an archbishop emeritus and retired cardinal who has frequently sought to mediate in the crisis, was kidnapped on Thursday near Kumbo in Northwest Region “along with his driver and about 10 other people,” Samuel Kleda, Archbishop of the port city of Douala, said in a statement.
