Cameroon(Mission Network News)— The Fulani herdsmen are known to frequent Nigeria. However, their nomadic lifestyle recently brought them to Cameroon. On Sunday, a Bible translator participating in the Wycliffe Bible Translators movement was killed in his home during an attack by the Fulani herdsmen. The attack took place in Wum, a village located in the Northwest of the country.
The attackers used a machete to dismember Angus Abraham Fung. The Christian Post reports Fung’s wife, Eveline, had her arm cut off. However, she and another person who was staying in their home did manage to escape. Per the report, Eveline is currently receiving a blood transfusion.
However, the “why” for the attack is still fuzzy. It is likely related to the escalating conflict in Cameroon surrounding the Anglophone crisis.
