Biya compensates fishermen who found Bishop Bala’s corpse

As a sign of appreciation for the great job which the fishermen did, President Paul Biya thought it wise to give the men some money which was handed to them by the Governor of the Centre Region, Naseri Paul Bea.

Among the beneficiaries, was the Malian Fisherman who found the corpse. He was the one to whom highest credits were given. He saw the corpse after three days of intensive search by both members of the National Marine and local fishermen. “I thank the government, we all are happy” the Malian expressed his feelings.


The amount in the envelope was not disclosed but the content of the envelope was obviously heavy.

While the fishermen are being appreciated, the Bishops of the National Episcopal Conference of Cameroon, are cracking their heads on how to lay hands on the person or people behind this assassination according to them, as they don’t believe the state’s verdict on Bishop Jean Marie Benoit’s death. Government says the man of God got drowned.
