A Catholic priest identified as Reverend Fr Jude, has slumped and died while preaching the homily during a Sunday Mass.
The unfortunate incident took place on Sunday, August 30, in Diedo, Cameroon.
The video showed Rev.Fr Jude, the Spiritual Director of Catholic Men Association (CMA) in Deido, who was preaching on the altar with a face mask when it felt like he wasn’t breathing properly and while trying to adjust the mask, he slumped.
Fellow Priests and some church members rushed to his aid as he fell, but it was too late to revive him as he died few moments later.
According to the Former chairman and Chairman of National Human Rights Commission and lawyer, Chidi Odinkalu who shared the video on Twitter, he wrote;
