Frankline Ndifor, 39, a candidate in the central African state of Cameroon’s presidential election in 2018, claimed to cure COVID-19.

His supporters called him a ‘prophet’ and blocked entrance to his home in the capital city of Douala for eight hours as medical staff tried to retrieve Ndifor’s body on Saturday morning.

Follower Rigobert Che said ‘the prophet’ prayed for him and several dozen others who had been diagnosed with or were suspected of having coronavirus.

“Now that he is dead, I do not know how the people that he was laying hands on will be healed.”

“This is a pastor that has been laying hands [on the sick] and claiming that he cures COVID-19,’ Che said. ‘If you, the person that claims that you are curing COVID-19, you are dead, what about the fellow people that were affected by the COVID-19?”
