Catholic priests order herdsmen to leave Enugu: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
They were shooting and he kept moving even as they were shooting and because they have shot and deflated his tyres, he and the boy that accompanied him ran into the bush but they cut up with them and eventually killed him.“They left the boy that accompanied him but they killed the priest because they said the priest was the one driving and that he refused to stop by the time they were shooting at him. According to the young man who came to speak with us this morning, he said that one of them suggested that they take him and ask for ransom but the other said because he had given them troubles, they were going to kill him.“According to the boy, one of the killers said that even if they take him, the ransom may not be paid. So out of anger they decided to kill him, his body was raided with bullets. They Youngman is not a seminarian, he is a young boy of about 17 years.
Since the herdsmen have become so murderous and are still killing our people, we are no longer comfortable with them, we are demanding that they leave the state. We have leaved with herdsmen and cohabited with them over the years but this time their stay has become inimical to our people and we are no longer comfortable with that.“So if they can no longer leave peacefully with us, we demand that they leave our state and we are demanding that the government should see to that exist. The governor received us and we left our statement with him.”
