A Cameroonian pastor named Franklin Ndifor has died of coronavirus after he laid hands on dozens of infected patients carrying the deadly disease.
The infected patients had gathered his church after he claimed he could cure the virus.
Immediately after his death, his members blocked entrances to his home in the capital city as medical staff tried to retrieve his body.
Franklin’s doctor who was called to treat him after he started suffering severe respiratory difficulties, said the pastor died ten minutes after receiving treatment.
The governor of the coastal region said a police force had to be introduced when his members blocked the entrance to his home claiming that the pastor was on a spiritual retreat with God so he could not be buried. Unfortunately, the pastor wasn’t revived and was buried in front of his house.
