Catholic priest kidnapped and murdered in Imo State

  • The Imo State Police Command has confirmed the reported kidnap and murder of a Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Cyriacus Onunkwo. 

  • Confirming the ugly incident, the Commissioner of Police, CP, Mr. Chris Ezike, said the priest’s corpse has been recovered. 

    “The matter was properly reported to the police and we went into action. Less than 24 hours after, the Orsu Divisional Police Officer, DPO, reported the discovery of an abandoned corpse in its area of jurisdiction”, Ezike said. 

    “Although we are working on all leads over the matter. For now, it is a clear case of abduction and murder. If it was a case of kidnapping, his captives would have put a call across to anybody close their victim and made a demand”, Ezike said. 

  • Answering a question, the CP said that “although nobody has been arrested in connection with the crime, we are investigating it".
