Former Aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Friday, while reacting to the murder of a Catholic Priest, Rev FR Paul Offu by suspected Fulani Herdsmen in Enugu State said insecurity situation is really getting out of hand.
Concise News earlier reports that Paul Offu who hailed from Okpatu in Udi LGA of Enugu State was shot dead by suspected Fulani Herdsmen on Thursday evening in the State.
Rev FR Paul Offu is the parish priest of St. James the Greater Parish, Ugbawka in Enugu until his death.
While reacting to the incident, Fani-Kayode said: “It provides yet another example of the barbaric nature and homicidal disposition of those that perpetuated the act.”
“I wonder how Catholic priests who appear to consistently defend the atrocities of the Fulani terrorists like Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah and Father Ihejike Mbaka feel about this latest act of barbarity and wickedness?
“Those who target women, children, and clerics for slaughter are nothing but cold-blooded killers, ravenous beasts and wholesale cowards who are too timid and scared to take on real men in open battle.”
The killing of the priest was announced on the Facebook page of the Diocese.
The post read: “With a deep sense of sorrow, the Catholic Diocese of Enugu announces the tragic death of REV FR PAUL OFFU who was shot dead this evening (1st August 2019) by some hoodlums suspected to be the notorious and murderous Fulani herdsmen, along Ihe-Agbudu Road in Awgu LGA”.
