Anglican priest killed in Imo

An Anglican priest, Rev Emeka Merenu, was Tuesday murdered in his parsonage at Orsu Ihitte Ukwa in Orsu area of Imo state.

Blueprint gathered that the priest met his untimely death over an allegation that he brought some soldiers to the village to protect himself, the church and the school under his care.

The Amorji Nkwere born priest, according to reports, was murdered and his car was later burnt to ashes.

All efforts by to get the Imo Police Command’s spokesman, CSP Mike Abattam, to confirm the incident before going to press proved abortive as his line was switched off.
