Catholic Priest missing in western Burkina Faso

A catholic parish priest of Our Lady of Peace parish in Soubaganyedougou commune in western Burkina Faso, on the border with Côte d’Ivoire, has gone missing since Tuesday.

A statement issued on Wednesday by Bishop Lucas Kalfa Sanou of Banfora, capital of Comoé province, named the missing priest as Rev. Father Rodrigue Sanon.


It said that Fr. Sanon left Soubaganyedougou for Banfora to attend a meeting, but he never arrived at his destination.

“We implore the competent authorities who are doing everything possible to search for him. We ask anyone who has any information to notify the police of Soubaganyedougou, Banfora or the bishop or a priest of the diocese,” said Bishop Sanou.
