The ‘Anglophone’ Community is still in shock following the death of Rev. Father Alexander Sob, Parish Priest of Bomaka Local Government Area, Buea Diocese, Fako County. Father Sob passed on to glory yesterday in Muyuka Local Government Area as a result of gunshots. The Catholic church Vicar General Father Asek this morning released a statement announcing the death of Father Sob indicating that he was shot without details as to whose bullets did Father Sob bowed out of this earth. However, the how and the ways he died is still dangling in the tongues of the people of Ambazonia, Christians and family members as many versions are coming up. Ray Timah, Southern Cameroons Political Scientist presents an accurate eyewitness account which indicates Father Sob was deliberately shot at by La Republique Du Cameroun Soldiers. Ray Timah was speaking to a Muyuka Denizen who drove Father Sob to the hospital as he gave up the ghost. You may want to read on


Father Sob was shot at close range by the Military. I have spoken to an eyewitness who gave a vivid account about the incident. He maintained that Father Sob was no where near his Mothers house at the time of the unfortunate incident. Rev. had stopped in front of popular store known as ” CY STORE” around the Muyuka main park. His intention was to wait for the tense atmosphere between the Military and restoration forces to die down as gunshots could be heard from afar.

A few minutes later, a group of military men approaches his parked car and asked him to take down his windscreen. In the course of doing that, an officer open fire directly to his chest. Note that he was shot twice at two different positions through the screen on the drivers side. They shot him and left and the owner of the shop who had taken cover as a result of the gunshot attempted to rescue Father Sob.
He was moved to the passenger side of the same car he was shot in and transported to the hospital which was already late.

The Eyewitness added..” Nothing occurred like a stray bullet or crossfire. As a matter of fact, no exchange of gunfire was around CY store at the time of the incident. The area was a safe zone at the time, that is why Rev chose to park there for his safety. He was murdered. It was intentional. The position of the two bullet wounds could be seen on his right and left side of his chest. That tells a lot.”

What caught my attention

The picture on the Facebook wall of Father Sob caught my attention. You can see him smiling directly behind Jacque Fame Ndongo during a celebration in Sasse . He never knew he was standing behind one the devil behind this war that cut his life short.
Rest in Peace Father.

    RIP Father SOB! You would be alive today had a bunch of misguided baboons and sub-humans who walked naked in 1800 not declared a war they can’t win. They are pinning the blame now on Cameroon army while forgetting that they too bear the greater responsibility for this mayhem. The other day, these same gangs of marauding thugs and armed robbers called Ambazonia defense forces murdered a hotel proprietor in cold blood. while not being callous, the Online putative republicans can now see one thing: “THE CHICKENS are Coming home to roost! Fare you well padre!

    The thug, biya declared war on a peace loving people in order to destroy their livelihoods. Now biya and his criminals soldiers are after our prelates. they killed in lrc and hid under a bridge and now they are continuing their terror on Ambazonians. lrc evil will not go unpunished.

    May Father Sob rest in perfect peace. He is alive in our hearts and will be remembered for the love he had for his flock. May God comfort the grieving families going through biya’s terror in West Cameroon.

    From now on, its blood for blood, no mercy at all.

    Enough is enough, no more being nice and considerate. They too must mourn.

    By the way, we also know how to fire stray bullets that hit only LRC citizen.

    The sad thing is that Biya and his LRC military just killed one of their own, as Father Sob is actually a Bassa man from Cameroun, whose family moved over and settled in our country. I wonder why Father Sob did not simply relocate his family from Ambazonia back to their country in Bassa, Edea in LRC when he had that option, unlike us, who only have our one a only Ambaland. I hope Camerounese will use Father Sob’s death as reason to get out on the streets with arms in arm with arm and fight their little trouble. Even though he is a foreigner from LRC and not one of us, may Father Sob’s Soul Rest in Peace. Amen.

      Atem u can’t manipulate nor deceive anyone. Ur crimes have been exposed for the world to see wat a barbarian u guys r. We all know that it’s u guys who killed him bcz u expect francophone “bassa” to react against our Anglophone brother on the other side but rest assure that it will not work. In fact u guys r going to have the opposite effect. Right now as we speak lm housing a family of 7 from Bamenda right now is Douala free of charge. I use my energy, time n resources to build not to distroy like most u ambazozo here. Learn something 2day n stop distroying the little u have. Instead of funding the war why is it that u Anglo from the diaspora never funded gz with 21 century hospitals n school since u have money for war? Stupidity when u take hold of us😭😭😭
