He wrote: “THIS IS NIGERIA TODAY NOBODY IS SAFE!
ADIEU REV. FATHER JOSEPH MULIMIBI
This is one of the numerous reasons why you shouldn’t vote for Buhari/APC come 2019
Rev. Father Joseph Mulimibi preached against Fulani Herdsmen on the 10th January 2018 wednesday, next day he was murdered. That is how bad the situation is in Nigeria now. Rest In Peace Father.
Enternal rest grant unto your soul and let perpetual light shine upon you.
Rest On Padre!
OPINION: THE SHORT STORY OF FATHER MULIMIBI
I didn’t know this man personally but as a Catholic Priest I can predict what he would have been preaching.
He probably stood up and spoke against Fulani Herdsmen killings. He probably told them you can’t hold guns and ask for your rights. He also must have spoken against the injustice meted out on Christian farmers. I am sure he was a man of Peace, he must have told the Christians don’t pick up guns, trust in God, He will avenge you, He will protect you He will defend you.
Today he watches and joins the fight from Heaven!
Each time they slaughter a Christian a standard is erected against them. Each time these vermin’s take another life, Buhari is getting closer to the exit door.
Adieu! Dear Father Mulimibi.
Your precious martyrdom will not be in vain!”
