Bishop Dieudonné Nzapalainga, Archbishop of Bangui and president of Caritas Central Africa has announced with deep regret the news of the assassination of Father Christ Forman WILIBONA from the Diocese of Bossangoa. He was killed on Friday, April 18, 2014 by a group of armed men in TALE .
His murder came after the kidnapping of Archbishop Nestor-Désiré Nongo AZIAGBYA , Bishop of Bossangoa and three other priests of the diocese in Batangafo by former Seleka fighters on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 during their Easter time pastoral tour.
Bishop Dieudonné notes with bitterness the upsurge in religious-oriented violence especially in the north-western part of the country.
He denounces and condemns these barbaric acts of another age that could challenge the desired national reconciliation efforts.
He invites all the Central Africans as well as all men and women of good will to pray for the return of peace and security in this country and have their heart in dialogue and reconciliation.
He appeals to the government to restore the rule of law and to the forces of the Sangaris operation and of the Misca to disarm all militias and guarantee the free movement of people throughout the territory.
