Catholic Priest Shot Dead by Gunmen in Front of a Barber's Shop

A catholic priest, identified as Jude Egbuom has been confirmed dead after he was shot dead by armed persons on Monday night.

The incident took place at the priest’s Nkwerre hometown in Nkwerre Local Government Area of the state.
It was also learnt that the gunmen after shooting the priest also stole his car. The hoodlums also killed another young man who was with the priest.
The late priest, who hailed from Umuwala village in Nkwerre, was until his death the parish priest of St Patrick’s Catholic Parish, Amucha, in neighbouring Njaba Local Government Area of the state.
According to Premium Times, the incident happened around 8 p.m. near a barber’s shop on Anara-Nkwerre Road in Nkwerre town.
The hoodlums were reportedly angered by the priest’s refusal to hand over his car keys.
“The circumstances surrounding the killing of the priest indicated that it was a case of armed robbery.
“It could not have been a case of assassination, who did the gentle priest offend? He was from our community, Nkwerre and was doing his missionary work at Njaba, a nearby LGA,” a source who asked not to be named said
Police spokesperson, Andrew Enwerem, confirmed the killings.
According to him, the police commissioner, Dasuki Galadanchi, has deployed the tactical unit of the command to the area.
