Bodjongo played with his hometown club Douala Athletic Club, a club in MTN Elite Two, Cameroon's National Second Division. He also played for Coton Sport FC and Unisport Bafang in Cameroon.
He was signed by Malaysian club 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 the club in a 2–2 draw with Terengganu FA on 4 May 2012.
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.
Subsequent coroners post-mortem results released on 18 December 2014, showed Bodjongo may have died from a severe beating and not from a projectile, which was the initial claim.
