They are at the disposal of the ongoing judicial inquiry announced by the Attorney General at the Court of Appeal of the Center.
According to sources in the daily newspaper Le Jour, on 8 June 2017, a driver and a guard from the diocese of Bafia were arrested on 2 June 2017 in connection with the death of Bishop Jean-Marie Benoît Bala, bishop of the diocese, whose circumstances of the death remain unresolved until now.
The two people arrested were placed in custody “in a place held secret for the moment“. Although the reasons for their arrest can not be determined at this time, it is known that they are at the disposal of the judicial inquiry announced by the Attorney General at the Court of Appeal of the Center. It is also known that they are considered as part of the entourage of the deceased bishop.
The newspaper that follows closely this case also reports that in addition to these two arrests aroused, many people continue to be auditioned. “The generally well informed sources of Le Jour add that the investigators carefully exploit the call list corresponding to the telephone contact of Bishop Bala.
Our sources do not say what filters out from the exploitation of these valuable data. It is therefore difficult to know whether or not they have highlighted elements that could justify the arrest of these two men, “he wrote.
However, it was noted that on May 31, 2017, when the bishop disappeared, it was said that a guard of the diocese would be the last person to have seen the deceased. Is this the guard questioned? That’s the question. For the time being, there is no element capable of answering the said question.
