Cameroon: Islamists Kill Christian Missionary, Burn Several Churches

For the glory of “Allah” and his “prophet” …

Qur’an Sura 4:76, “Those who believe [Muslims] fight in the cause of Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 3:151, “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they [Christians] joined companions with Allah [they believe in the Trinity], for which He had sent no authority …”

Qur’an Sura 47:4,  “So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them …”

WorldWatch Monitor – “A missionary has been killed and several churches set ablaze in attacks by Nigeria’s Islamist group Boko Haram in neighbouring Cameroon.

The Nigerian missionary, David Dina Mataware, with the Christian Missionary Foundation (CMF), was killed on November 13 by suspected Boko Haram militants in Ashigashia, a village which straddles the Nigeria-Cameroon border.

He was murdered on the same day as the kidnapping of a French priest, Father Georges Vandenbeusch, but the death was not reported by the media, a church leader told World Watch Monitor, even though both incidents happened in the same area.

The kidnap was claimed by Boko Haram ‘in an operation co-ordinated with Ansaru’, its spokesman told Agence France Presse. Ansaru is a Boko Haram splinter group that has attacked several Western and Nigerian targets. It claimed responsibility for the kidnap and murder of seven international construction workers earlier in 2013.

Mataware had worked with CMF since 2010. CMF is a Nigeria-based mission agency active in Cameroon since 1989. Its ministry is focused on the tribes of Mandara, Kanouri and Guemergou in the district of Mora in northern Cameroon.

‘An undetermined number of armed men crossed the border and entered into Cameroon at midnight. On their way back, they attacked the CMF compound. Unfortunately, one of the six missionaries had his throat cut. Five others managed to flee,’ said the church leader, who wished to remain nameless.

Cameroon is a secular country in Central Africa. Approximately 70 per cent of the population is at least nominally Christian and most of its population in the North are Muslims.

Over the weekend of November 15-17, a number of incidents took place alongside the porous border of Nigeria and Cameroon. Local sources contacted by World Watch Monitor say dozens of properties, including Ewy church in Tourou (in Cameroon) were attacked while at least one church was set ablaze and destroyed on the Nigerian side of Ashigashia.

At least four people were killed and many others wounded and transferred to health centres. Despite the reinforcement of security forces in the area, villagers fear continued attacks from Islamist militants from Nigeria.” Read more.

Flashback: Cameroon: Militant Muslims Warn Christian Converts To Return To Islam Or ‘Face Allah’s Wrath’ – “Christian converts in northern Cameroon are coming under intensifying pressure following a warning from militant Muslims to return to Islam or ‘face Allah’s wrath’. The handwritten threat from a group identifying itself as Boko Haram was put under the door of a church leader’s house earlier this month. It called on all Christian converts to return to Islam at the mosque on Friday 13 January or face the wrath of the god of Islam.” Read more.
