Reports reaching Somtoo Okoye blog is suggesting that 3 Catholic priests were attacked by Fulani herdsmen in Uzo-Uwani, Nimbo LGA of Enugu State. Back in March, scores of people were killed in Nimbo when armed Fulani herdsmen stormed the community in the wee hours of the morning.
According to Rev Fr. Chetanna Jude Chukwuneke, the chaplain of St. Camillus de Lellis Chaplaincy in Nnamdi Azikiwe University, who was involved in the latest attack:
THANKS BE TO GOD
Dear friends, thank you so much for your solidarity, goodwill messages,calls and most importantly your prayers. I am very much stable, hale and hearty.
Our Lord did the greatest miracle for me: I was shot in the head through the side window of the drivers side by Fulani hoodlums along Obimo in Uzo-Uwani, near Nimbo both in Enugu state. The pellets stopped few inches to my brain/skull, and left orbit and ear. It could have been the end but GOD SAID IT’S NOT YET TIME. However, I still have some pellets in my face.
Finally continue to pray for Fr Emmanuel Dim who was abducted. Also Fr Prof Ezeokana is recovering from burns.
Please let’s support them in prayers and let our voices echo for justice..
