A Catholic priest who went missing in Burkina Faso has been found dead, the Agence France Presse, AFP, reports.

The priest who went missing since Tuesday in Burkina Faso’s jihadist-plagued southwest has been found dead, security and local sources said Thursday.

“The priest’s lifeless body was found in the Toumousseni Forest” in the Cascades region bordering Ivory Coast and Mali, a security source said.

A local politician confirmed that the priest, Abbot Rodrigue Sanon from the Notre Dame de Soubaganyedougou parish, had been found dead.

While the priest’s disappearance and death remain unexplained, Burkina Faso’s southeast harbours jihadists and bandits — much like parts of neighbouring states in the Sahel region.

Sanon had left his parish on Tuesday heading for the regional capital Banfora, but “never arrived”, bishop Lucas Kalfa Sanou said Wednesday in a statement.

His car was found empty on the main road and security forces launched a search operation.

“Everything looks like a kidnapping by armed terrorist groups,”
a security source in the capital Ouagadougou told AFP, using Sahel governments’ preferred terminology for jihadists.

“They must have executed their hostage to slip by the military cordon,”
the source added.
