Priest

Rev Emeka Merenu

Rev Emeka Merenu, a priest of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) has been murdered by gunmen in his parsonage at Iheteukwa , Orsu Local Government Area of Imo State.

A reliable source in the Anglican Church told Dailypost on Tuesday that the Nkwerre born clergy was killed this morning over an unfounded allegation that he brought in soldiers to secure the Church and School under his supervision.

The source said the assailants burnt his car after killing him. “Everybody is sad at the moment and afraid for their lives.” he said.

The source explained, “Not only that he is from Nkwerre, he was the second runner up to the current Principal when they were looking for the current principal of St Augustine’s Grammar School, Nkwerre Imo State (SAGS).”

He hails from Amorji Agbomori Village in Nkwerre.
