idol worshippers attack catholic priest awka anambra

August 30, 2016 – Idol Worshippers Attack, Beat Up Catholic Priest, Rev. Father In Awka Anambra State 

Angry youths suspected to be idol worshippers yesterday attacked Rev. Father Fidelis Ugozo, the parish priest of St. Raphael’s Catholic Church, Obubo village, Ugbenu in Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The priest was attacked and beaten to a pulp by the youth who tore his humeral veil to shreds and stabbed him in the face. Other Christians also sustained various degrees of injury while performing their monthly Rosary procession.

A witness said Ugozo was carrying the ‘Blessed Sacrament’ in procession going round some villages in the community when he and members of his congregation were stopped by a man identified as Ikegbunam, who is now at large.

“Ikegbunem insisted that they will not enter his village named Obubo and when they overpowered him, he started making contacts, calling some youths from the village to attack the priest and others who were mainly women and children,” the witness said.

Ugozo, who is also the Spiritual Director of Amen and Amen Ministry, Omor in Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State, was first rushed to an undisclosed hospital in Ebenebe but because of his condition, he was transferred to St. Joseph’s Hospital, Adazi Ani by the Ebenebe Deanery Chaplain.

    Funny. This clearly shows that there is no Catholic Church branch there or better still, No Church in that village at all. The devil is still holding them captive or they refused to let go of their fore father‘s religion and embrace the Gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ. No wonder that Jesus have not return. There are places His message of Salvation have not gotten to. A place compeletly oblivious of the GoodNews and the saving grace in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    I take a stroll…

    Wishing him God’s divine healing and quick recovery. Rev.Fr, you can not force salvation into people, just preach the word of God and who ever receives it we thank God and who ever rejects it is left to the judgement of God

    Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm. I pity those youths/idol worshipers because they’ve just sign the warrant for hell unless they repent.
