    We didn’t plan to kill Catholic priest, Fr. Cyriacus Onunkwo – Suspect





    We didn’t plan to kill Catholic priest, Fr. Cyriacus Onunkwo – Suspect

    Mr. Izuchukwu Okafor, one of the members of the squad that masterminded the abduction and murder of Reverend Father Cyriacus Onunkwo, has claimed that it was never their intention to kill the cleric.

    He made this statement when six of them were paraded alongside other suspects on different offences, at the Imo state police headquarters.

    Okafor claimed that he was second in command and that a policeman, Ex Corporal, Jude Madu, organized the operation.

    He said, “I don’t know he will die. We covered the nose of the catholic priest that was why died. We saw him on the road and we did not know he was a Reverend Father and we kidnapped him. I was not the owner of the vehicle used in kidnapping the Catholic priest.

    “I was not the person who led the gang, it was a policeman. When we got to the junction, he asked us to stop in the front of the Catholic priest Toyota Corrola, and he asked the priest to come down and that he was under arrest.

    “I want to tell you that it was Jude Madu that requested that I should get a car and that we were going to somewhere. He did not tell me where we were going.”
