About a week after he was reportedly kidnapped by unknown gunmen, the remains of Reverend Father Clement Rapuluchukwu Ugwu, the Catholic Priest of St. Mark Catholic Church, Obinofia Ndiuno in Ezeagu Local Government Area (LGA) of Enugu State were found dead yesterday.
He was reportedly abducted on March 13, 2019, at about 9 p.m. in his parish. It was gathered that the gunmen suspected to be kidnappers, had shot him before they took him away in his blue-coloured Prado Jeep.
Speaking shortly after his remains were laid to rest at the Catholic cemetery of the Holy Ghost Cathedral, the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga, called on the police to fish out the killers of his priest.
This Day, Thursday 21, March.
