About three Reverend Fathers have been attacked and one shot in the head by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Enugu State.
According to one of the Reverend Fathers who was attacked, another Reverend Father was abducted by the herdsmen and one other is recovering from serious burns he suffered during the incident.
One of the priests from the Chaplain of St Camillus de Lelis Chaplaincy College of Health Science, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Chetanna Jude Chukwuneke shared details of the shocking encounter. He wrote: “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.”
