Hoodlums invaded and attacked St. Peters Anglican Church, Aguleri, Anambra-East of Anambra State, over the weekend.
Concise News gathered that the hoodlums inflicted injuries on the priest and other church workers.
According to reports, the church teacher Christopher Chukwu had come out in the dead of the night to urinate when he saw strange flashlights in the church’s premises and proceeded towards the direction.
It was learned that the hoodlums pounced on Chukwu, using machetes and other weapons on him.
Rev. Ikedilo, who narrated the ordeal to journalists, said that it was the church’s teacher and the gardener that were attacked.
“When I came down to ascertain what happened, the criminals had fled and left the church teacher and the gardener in a pool of their blood,” the priest said.
The President-General of Aguleri Community Assembly, Chief Barr. Hipo Onwuegbuke, who also narrated the event, recalled that he got a distress call at about 3:45 am from one of their relatives.
He said, “I immediately alerted the police and local vigilantes, who stormed the church premises just in time but unfortunately the miscreants, had escaped through Umueri, a neighbouring community.
“The police and local vigilante operatives saw the ladder with which the hoodlums wanted to use to climb into the residence of the priest.”
