The Slain Priest In Imo Had The Right To Offer Protection To Students In Church Premises

According to AIT, an Anglican Priest, Reverend Emeka Merenu was allegedly murdered by the ESN, they said he brought soldiers to secure his church and its school. We are gradually having a replica of Boko Haram in the South East, the earlier this madness is halted, the better. Those urging on the monster being created under ESN will later be consumed by it. A word is enough for the discerning.

They didn't spare a priest, what was his sin. He offered the students writing WAEC exams in his church premises protection. The church has a school. The priest invited soldiers to protect the students. When the soldiers left, they butchered the priest and burnt his car. His body has been deposited in a mortuary.

Personal self-determination is first, it comes before a group or ethnic self-determination. Everybody has the right to freedom of expression. Everybody has the right to freedom of association and dissociation. People have the right to chart their life paths, you can't bully them into submission and can't become their prefects. You can't trample on personal self-determination while marching to group self-determination.

How can any group crying for self-determination make tyranny its Modus Operandi? Now they have murdered a priest. Very sad it happens this way. May eternal rest grant unto him and May perpetual light shine upon him. Nigerians have warned them when they turned and made their pulpit, platform, and altar a channel for promoting the shenanigans and questionable practice of these lots, we tried to call them to order when they became the major campaigners, spoke persons and bandwagon for this is insubordinate lots, we cried and called for caution when they spur this armed group to curse, kill and desecrate the sanctity and sacredness of our land.

We even warn that they will be a victim of these groups they are breeding because this same group will grow too wild and dangerous to be curtailed by them but they threatened, cursed, insult, assault, and attempt to banish us from our father's land. Just imagine what they have done, they have caused the untimely death of a man of God.
