Pastor Laying Hands On COVID-19 Patients Dies After Contracting The Virus


Report says a 39-year-old Cameroonian Pastor identified as Frankline Ndifor has died of COVID-19 after laying hands on both confirmed and suspected cases.

The pastor was said to be a candidate in the central African state of Cameroon’s presidential election in 2018.

It was gathered that sufferers who had symptoms of the virus had flocked to his church, after he claimed to cure the virus.

Immediately after his death, his members and supporters blocked entrances to his home in the capital city of Doula for about eight hours as medical staff tried to retrieve his body.

They sang and prayed for his resurrection throughout the weekend. He was buried in front of the house on the day of his death.

Dr Gaelle Nnanga, who was called to treat Ndifor after he started suffering severe respiratory difficulties a week after falling ill with the virus, said the pastor died ten minutes after treatment.

The Governor of the coastal region said a police force had to be deployed when supporters blocked the entrance to his home and claimed the pastor was on a spiritual retreat with God so could not be buried.

Meanwhile, a follower identified as Rigobert Che said ‘the prophet’ prayed for him and several dozen others who had been diagnosed with or were suspected of having coronavirus.

‘This is a pastor that has been laying hands [on the sick] and claiming that he cures COVID-19,’ Che said. ‘If you, the person that claims that you are curing COVID-19, you are dead, what about the fellow people that were affected by the COVID-19? She added.
