Some Catholic priests were recently attacked by Fulani Herdsmen in Enugu State. According to reports, the priests, Rev Fr Chetanna Jude Chukwuneke, Fr Emmanuel Dim and Fr Prof Ezeokana were in a car when the incident occurred. Chukwuenke was driving his car along Obimo in Uzo-Uwani when the suspected herdsmen emerged from a bush in a bad spot of the road and shot him in the head but thankfully he didn’t die. They also injured the passengers, kidnapping one in the process.
In a post shared on his Facebook Page, Chukwuneke confirmed the incident. He said:
“Dear friends, thank you so much for your solidarity, goodwill messages, calls and most importantly your prayers. I am very much stable, hale and hearty. Our Lord did the greatest miracle for me: I was shot in the head through the side window of the drivers side by Fulani hoodlums along Obimo in Uzo-Uwani, near Nimbo both in Enugu state. The pellets stopped few inches to my brain/skull, and left orbit and ear. It could have been the end but GOD SAID IT’S NOT YET TIME. However, I still have some pellets in my face.Finally continue to pray for Fr Emmanuel Dim who was abducted. Also Fr Prof Ezeokana is recovering from burns.”
