A young Cameroonian who travelled to the Middle Eastern country of Cyprus, has died.
Ekon Franklin Motto moved to North Cyprus from Cameroon in February 2020, during the Spring intake into Higher Institutions to further his studies.
Ekon hails from Ndian Division-Bakundu, a village in Cameroon’s Southwest Region.
He reportedly fell very sick from a protracted illness from which he later died days ago. A Cameroonian student in North Cyprus informed Mimi Mefo Info that the University that hosted late Ekon Franklin had promised to take care of sending his corpse back to Cameroon but later on backed out. ” Ekon Franklin’s school had promised that there were going to send his corpse back to Cameroon when to be buried, but when the time came for the corpse to be sent home, they backed out and said they had nothing to do with the corpse. What they agreed to do was to pay for his removal of corpse from the mortuary,” a Cameroonian in North Cyprus told MMI.
Due to the lack of finances to send his corpse back to the Cameroon, he will now be buried in North Cyprus by the Cameroonian community tomorrow September 27, 2020.
