Nov 21, 2012 – Rev. Father Wilson Nwanu Robbers Arrested In Imo State

Three armed robbery suspects have been arrested for breaking into and robbing the house of Rev. Father Wilson Nwanu of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Imo State Polytechnic, Umuagwo.

The suspects, armed with an axe, iron cutter, iron rods, and a locally-made pistol, were said to have broken into the house of the priest on 17 November.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Vitalis Onugu, told newsmen in Owerri on Tuesday that the suspects robbed the priest of N150,000, one laptop and four cell phones.

Onugu said some youths from the community who noticed unusual activities at the Rev. Father’s resident, alerted the Chief Security Officer of the Polytechnic who called the police.

He said the suspects opened fire as soon as the police got to the scene, resulting in an exchange of gunfire.

The PPRO said three of the suspects were arrested with some weapons while the fourth escaped.

Onugu said the suspects, who had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Owerri, had provided useful information that could lead to the arrest of the fourth member of the gang.(Source: PMnews)

      Don’t forget the the church has alot of work that requires urgent attention, whence money should be made available. After all =N=150,000 is mininal for a parish to function proper.

      Is there anything wrong with having 4 hand sets with the problem of network we encounter from service providers? For daring to touch the annointed, they have met their waterloo.
