Imo: Police’ll apprehend killers of Fr. Cyriacus Onunkwo, says CP


The Imo State Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr. Chris Ezike, has said that the command is  determined to apprehend the murderers of Rev. Fr. Cyriacus Onunkwo.

The police commissioner, on Tuesday, that the police had begun their investigations which would eventually unmask the culprits.

NAN reports that some suspected kidnappers abducted the priest at a popular Banana junction in Orlu Local Government Area of the state on Friday

.Onunkwo was a priest in one of the Catholic dioceses in the state before he was murdered by yet-to-be-identified murderers last week.

The police during their search later discovered his corpse in Orsu Local Government Area where it was abandoned.

The commissioner of police described the incident as “inhuman and aberration” to human existence.

“How can anybody think of kidnapping or murdering a priest who is ordained to serve God?

“I am very optimistic that we will soon apprehend the culprits and bring them to book; this is my assurance to the Imo State Government, the family of the victim and the general public”, he said.

Meanwhile, Gov. Rochas Okorocha on Tuesday described the murder of Onunkwo as “senseless and wickedness”.

The governor’s reaction is contained in a statement issued to newsmen by Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS).

The governor said that the kidnappers would have to pay for their evil act.

The governor also directed the Commissioner of Police, Mr Chris Ezike, to leave no stone unturned in tracking those behind the abduction and killing of the priest. (NAN)

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it.
