Gunmen invades Church and Kills Reverend Father

It was sad as unidentified gunmen have attacked a church in Lagos killing a Reverend Father in the early hours of Friday.

 The victim, Daniel Nwankwo, was the parish priest of St Thomas Catholic Church, Onireke, Lagos.
A parishoner, Valentine, told Thecable online newspaper that the assailant struck around 9am killing the priest on the spot.
He explained the Reverend Father had finished attending to a church member when he was attacked by his assailants.
“They were three in number. The men came into the church as if they were parishioners.
“When they arrived here, father was taking confession.  As he was walking away after rounding off, they approached him and told him they need N5,000 to use in paying the hospital bill of someone.

“Before you knew what was happening, they had shot him on the stomach” he said.
