From Vatican News:
Father Paul Offu was reportedly shot dead by unidentified gunmen on the evening of Thursday, 1 August.
A note from the Diocese said that Fr. Offu hailed from Okpatu in Enugu State and until his death, was the parish priest of St. James the Greater Parish, Ugbawka. It said he was shot dead by suspected Fulani herdsmen, along Ihe-Agbudu Road in Awgu. Fr Offu’s murder comes just five months after the killing of Fr Clement Ugwu, the parish priest of St Mark Catholic Church, also in Enugu State. Fr. Ugwu, who was kidnapped on March 20, was found dead in a bush decomposing after a one-week search by his parishioners.
