Photo: Pastor butchered and shot dead in Abia

The police in Abia state are currently on the trail of a six-man gang that butchered and shot dead 48 year old Pastor Nnaemeka Ukenye (pictured above), who is the leader of one of the popular Pentecostal churches in Umuahia, Behold He Commeth Pentecostal Church in Ikwuano Local Government Area of Abia  State on Saturday May 13th.
Pastor Ukenye was killed on his farmland. He had gone to feed the birds in his poultry located at the Umuobia Housing Estate, Umuahia, Abia State capital when his killers came out from the bush,  chased away his workers, shot him dead and then butchered his body.

One of his workers who said he witnessed the killing, told the Sun that the gang members had first asked Ukenye if he knew any Ngozi who worked for him before they attacked him and killed him.
“My Oga said no and turned to us to ask if there was anybody like that. We said no. The assailant claimed that our oga was owing the said Ngozi salary.  One of them brought out a cutlass and hit me on the back, asking me to disappear. Others and I ran in different directions. They held our oga down.  We heard our Oga shouting, after which three gunshots were fired. Everywhere became quiet thereafter. When I waited for a long time without hearing anything, I sneaked to where they held our Oga and behold, his butchered body was lying at the centre of the road. We called his brothers, who came and we rushed him to the hospital, because we noticed that he was breathing very slowly. On getting to the hospital,   he was confirmed dead.  We then took his corpse to the state CID to make entry and they directed us to Ubakala police station, where we made entry before taking his corpse to mortuary. The whole scenario looked like he wanted to run before they hewed him down, then dealt several machete blows on him, probably, to make sure that he was dead. They came with a black Toyota car. They were about six in number, two came out from the bush and the other four came with the vehicle. It happened at the back of Holy Ghost Secondary School. They collected his phones and the money on him.”
