    Gunmen Kill Priest, Emeka Merenu For Inviting Soldiers to Protect School in Imo Stale

    Gunmen

    Gunmen assassinated Reverend Emeka Merenu, an Anglican Priest, at his parsonage in Orsu Ihiteukwa, Orsu Local Government Area, Imo State.

    Rev Emeka Merenu was the priest-in-charge of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Ihitte Ukwa, in the state’s Orsu LGA until his brutal murder on Tuesday.

    According to reports, the attackers stormed the church grounds and butchered the priest before setting fire to his vehicle in the early hours of Tuesday.

    According to a source, the priest was assassinated because of an unfounded allegation that he brought in military personnel to secure the secondary school under his supervision.

    “The priest in charge of St Andrew’s Anglican Church in Ihitte-Ukwa in Orsu Local Government Area of Imo State was killed this morning.

    “His attackers stormed the church compound where he lived, butchered him and burnt his car before running away.”

    When asked what could be the reason for the murder, the source said:

    “The church has a school on the premises. His attackers were probably angry that the priest gave security protection to the students of the school who were sitting this year’s West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination.”

    When contacted, Micheal Abattam, the state police spokesperson, confirmed the priest’s murder, adding, “Investigation has begun with a view to arresting the suspects.”

    The priest’s assassination comes just hours after gunmen stormed a school in Imo on Monday, chasing away students taking part in the ongoing 2021 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
