Updated: Aug 6, 2022

The Bishop of the Kumba Catholic Diocese has launched a campaign for the re-opening of all Catholic Schools in the Diocese shot down as a result of the Anglophone crisis in order to enable the children to return to school come next academic year.

Launching the campaign, Bishop Agapitus Nfon explained the move is intended to re-open all Catholic schools in the Diocese that closed down because of the Anglophone crisis. The Bishop went ahead to appeal to all Catholic Christians to assist financially, morally, and otherwise for the subdivision plan to be successful.

The Bishop's plan was presented to the Christians of the Catholic Church Kosala in Fiango Kumba 2, on Sunday 31st July 2022, where the Parish priest, Rev Father Ateh Bruno explained to the parishioners the importance of Christian education and the support the Bishop's initiative, especially financially.

After Ren. Father Bruno's explanation and appeal, some Christians generously financially contributed to flag off the Bishop initiative.

Other parishes have promised to beef up the Bishop's initiative, given the importance of Christian education.

Catholic schools in Meme Division were the worst affected within the context of the Anglophone crisis.

Still, within that context, gunmen opened fire in the air to disperse pupils in one of their primary schools in Fiango.

After the Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy Fiango Kumba 2 subdivision massacre, gunmen believed to be military visited the lone Catholic college in Fiango and Informed the gateman that they had been sent to protect the school.

The Bishop later confronted the alleged soldiers and told them he had not requested any Security.

The next day, the parents were invited to come to take their children home.
