The Archbishop also explained how he initially learned of the kidnapping: “Late in the evening on Wednesday, I received a telephone call from the Bishop of Bossangoa, who told me that he had been taken from his home together with three other religious”. MISCA forces, the African peacekeeping mission deployed in the country and who are present in the city, made contact with the kidnappers.
