Albert Dominique Ebossé Bodjongo Dika (6 October 1989 – 23 August 2014) was a Cameroonian football player who played for JS Kabylie in the Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1.

Career

He was signed by Perak FA on 15 April 2012 as a replacement for outgoing striker Lazar Popović. He made his league debut for Perak in a 2–2 draw with Sabah FA on 17 April 2012 and scored his first goal for Perak in a 2–2 draw with Terengganu FA on 4 May 2012.

Before joining Perak, Bodjongo last played with his hometown club Douala Athletic Club, a club in MTN Elite Two, Cameroon's National Second Division. He also have played for Coton Sport FC and Unisport Bafang in Cameroon.

In July 2013, Bodjongo signed for JS Kabylie (JSK). He was the top scorer of the Algerian Championship in 2014 with 17 goals.

Honours

Bodjongo reportedly had 6 caps with the Cameroon national football team (mainly with the 'B' team), and had also played for the under-20 team in 2009.

Death

On 23 August 2014, Bodjongo was struck on the head by a projectile thrown by one of the angry JSK fans while the teams were leaving the field at the end of a home game between JSK and USM Alger. The match had ended in a 2–1 defeat, with Bodjongo contributing the sole JSK goal. Bodjongo died a few hours later in hospital by a traumatic brain injury. He was aged 24. Following Bodjongo's death, the Algerian Football Federation suspended all football indefinitely and ordered the closure of the 1st November 1954 stadium.
