Asked what could be the reason for the murder, the source said, “The church has a school on the premises. His attackers might have been angry that the slain priest was giving security protection to the students of the school who were writing this year’s WASSCE for Senior Secondary schools.”
A senior member of the church in the Orlu Anglican diocese who preferred to be anonymous confirmed the incident to our correspondent.
He told our correspondent that the diocese had been thrown into a morning mood.
When contacted, the police spokesperson in the state, Micheal Abattam, confirmed the murder incident and added that investigation had commenced with the intention of arresting the suspects.
