Confusion in Cameron as famous pastor who lays hands on dozens of confirmed and suspected coronavirus sufferers has dies from the virus.
Frankline Ndifor, popular Cameroon pastor and candidate in the central African stateâs last presidential election, died of COVID-19 following his prayers that hundreds of his supporters get cured of the virus.
Cameroon police used force to gain access to his residence in the economic capital city Douala, as some of his supporters blocked entrances, praying for his resurrection.
Hundreds of followers sang Sunday morning at Ndiforâs Douala residence that the man popularly referred to as the prophet is not dead, but he is rather on a spiritual retreat with God and will return soon. Their singing and prayers were broadcast by several local radio stations.
Ndifor died and was buried in front of his residence Saturday by workers of Cameroonâs COVID-19 response team in Douala.
Doctor Gaelle Nnanga said by messaging application from Douala that Ndifor died less than a week after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

He says that some members of Ndiforâs Kingship International Ministries Church called him to come to the pastorâs aid when they found out Ndifor was in agony, and that when the medical team he leads arrived, Ndifor was having severe respiratory difficulties. He says the pastor died less than 10 minutes after they treated him.
The governor of Cameroonâs coastal region, where Douala is, said in a release he deployed police to force their way to Ndiforâs residence when his followers chased medical staff away, claiming that the pastor was on a spiritual retreat with God, rather than dead, and should not be buried.
Ndifor follower Rigobert Che says the âprophetâ last Wednesday prayed for him and several dozen people diagnosed with COVID-19, and some who suspected they were carriers or had symptoms. He says via a messaging application that Ndiforâs death has brought panic to the hundreds of people who have been visiting him for prayers for a divine cure.
âThis is a pastor that has been laying hands [on the sick] and claiming that he cures COVID-19,â Che said. âIf 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? Now that he is dead, I do not know how the people that he was laying hands on will be healed.â
Medical staff are asking all those who came in contact with the pastor to report to hospitals to be tested for COVID-19.
Besides praying for COVID-19 patients at his home and his church, Ndifor was also donating buckets and soap to the poor to protect themselves from the coronavirus by washing their hands. His last public outing was on April 20, when he went out into Doualaâs streets to distribute facemasks.
Ndifor had a reputation as a miracle healer, and he was a contender in Cameroonâs 2018 presidential election, emerging seventh out of nine candidates, with 23, 687 votes
