Bali: Native Doctor Cheats Death


A man who identified himself as a traditional doctor from Limbe, South West Region, yesterday narrowly escaped from being lynched by an angry mob at the Tikali quarters Bali, for allegedly stealing a patient’s money.

Residents around the area told BamendaOnline that the man was brought to Bali from Douala by one Bobga to treat his brother who has been ill for a long time and was brought home from Gabon for native treatment. The native doctor while working on the patient allegedly stole a purse containing 50 000 Frs.  When the patient noticed that his money was missing he raised an alarm. When family members and neighbours came by, they noticed that only the native doctor had been by his beside. The doctor was brought back and when he could not give a satisfactory explanation, the crowd pounced on him beating him with sticks and stones.

The man who brought him to Bali, Bobga was instead the one that insisted that he should be lynched as the crowd pounded him from every direction. He was dragged along the Prescraft street and was about to be burned alive when a close neighbour to the site he was about to by burned asked the crowd to take him elsewhere. When the crowd resisted, he got an engine saw and started it to disperse the mob.

It was only then that the native doctor mustered enough energy to tell the few people around that Bobga and an unidentified commercial bike rider were those who brought him to Bali to help extort money from his brother. Be this time, Bobga had disappeared and has not been seen by press time.

The angry mob later on went to the native doctor’s rented room at the Titam quarters and took out all his belongings and destroyed them. The whereabouts of both Bobga and the Doctor still remains unknown.
