Angry youths have burnt a Fulani herdsman suspected of killing an abducted Catholic Priest, Rev. Father Christopher Odia, at Ikabigbo community in Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State.
Fr Christopher Odia Killed
It was gathered that the Priest was preparing to go for Sunday Mass in the early hours of the morning when gunmen stormed his residence and abducted him into the bush.
Sources said two herdsmen were caught by the community youths after they killed the priest, but one of the suspects was rescued by policemen.
A Facebook user, Jim Edison Teddy wrote: “Two of the killers of Rev. Fr. Christopher Odia of St Micheal Catholic Church, Ikabigbo, were apprehended by community who were on the trail of the kidnappers.
“The Fulani terrorists opened fire on their pusuers, killed one of them and seriously injured 3 others. The kidnappers also gunned down the Reverend Father in anger.
“The youths wouldn’t give up even with the casualties on their side until they arrested two of the gang members. One of the terrorists was burnt to death and the other retrieved from the angry youths by policemen.”
A leader of the community, who also confirmed the incident, told Vanguard that one vigilante member was killed by the kidnappers.
He said, “Our boys pursued the kidnappers into the bush and they killed one of our boys but the mass servant who was shot is in Otibhor (ISTH) right now and he just came out of the theater and he survived it, it was the vigilante that died.
“Our boys went after them and were able to arrest one of the kidnappers who has confessed to the crime and he is presently at the Area Command of the Police in Auchi.
“After the incident, our boys surrounded the area and they started shooting anybody, they even shot a woman that was coming from the farm after they killed the vigilante member, they shot so many people.
“Everybody in our village is a warrior, when they killed the vigilante, the people mobilized and started pursuing the kidnappers with their bare hands.”
