Fulani herdsmen attack catholic priest in Enugu


A priest of the Catholic Church and the Vicar of St Theresa’s Parish Agulu, Rev Fr Cornelius Okoye ‘miraculously’ escaped attack by suspected herdsmen on 20th of October, 2021.

The clergy who recounted his ordeal said the herdsmen attacked him along Ugwuoba/Amansea, Enugu Onitsha expressway, Enugu State.

According to him, his attackers shot at him and made attempts to open his heart before “thunder struck” and they took to their heels.

“I thank God for delivering me from Fulani gunmen at Ugwuoba/Amansea, Enugwu Onitsha expressway.

They shot sporadically at me. They Used knife to cut my body and wanted to open my heart before thunder struck and they ran away. At that point God gave me the energy to stroll and saw someone that took me to the hospital,” he said.

The priest hails from Nawgu, Anambra and belongs to Awka Diocese.
