The killing of a Catholic cleric, the parish Priest of St. James Greater Parish, Ugbawka, Rev. Father Paul Offu on Thursday in Enugu State by yet to be identified gunmen has further increased the security tension in the country.
Former Minister of aviation, Chief Femi Fani Kayode has taken to his twitter handle to condemn the death of the priest whom he alleged was killed by herdsmen.
“The murder of a Catholic priest by Fulani terrorists in Enugu yesterday provides yet another example of the barbaric and homicidal disposition of the herdsmen.”
The former minister took a swipe on Bishop Kukah and Rev Father Mbaka accusing them of supporting the atrocities of these Fulani herdsmen .
“I wonder how clerics like Kukah and Mbaka, who consistently defend the atrocities of these vagrant beasts feel about this latest act of wickedness?
“Those who target innocent and defenceless women,children and clerics for butchery and slaughter are nothing but cold-blooded killers and wholesale cowards who are too weak and timid to take on real men in battle.”
