July 10, 2017 – Nigerian Catholic Bishop Who Shot Disobedient Assistant At Parish House In Imo State Sacked

Rt. Rev. Solomon Amatu, the Catholic Bishop of Okigwe Diocese has sacked Rev. Father Christian Amusuo for allegedly shooting his assistant, Rev Father Precious Osuji , who is the Parish priest of the Church, Eziama – Osuama, in the Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.

Our correspondent learnt on Saturday that his assistant was not also spared, as the prelate equally removed him from the parish.

The PUNCH had reported that Amusuo had on June 23 at the parish house reportedly shot his former assistant after a heated argument.

It was gathered that the former parish priest had reportedly accused Osuji of constantly disobeying him and flouting his orders.

Amusuo was later arrested by the police for being in possession of a firearm and shooting his former assistant.

The cleric, however, had been released on bail after he was interrogated at the state Criminal and Investigations Department of the police command in Owerri, the State capital.

Confirming the sacking of the priests by Bishop Amatu, a parishioner who did not want his name to be mentioned, said that a new priest had temporarily been drafted to the parish.

The parish laity leader, Sir Jude Obi, who confirmed to our correspondent that the two priests had been removed by the Bishop, said that a new parish priest would be assuming duties in a full capacity on Sunday, July 9.

Obi mentioned that the immediate intervention of the Bishop by transferring the two priests prevented the youths from locking up the church.

He also added that the new priest drafted to the parish celebrated Mass on Sunday the 2nd of July.

  1. Anywhere you see okorocha, problem dey always follow…. the gun maybe for the protection against herdsmen, but Okorocha connived and brainwashed him to use it against Christians.
