    Nothing like life in prison. Firing squad or by hanging. From sources the killing of Rev. Fathers started when Gov. Okorocha blamed Catholic priests for the trouble he is having in Imo state. The Reverend Fathers have been critical of his bad governance. Fingers are pointing at Uche Nwosu (Okorocha’s son in law) as the hatchet man.
