Catholic Bishop

The Catholic Bishop of Okigwe Diocese, Most Rev Dr Solomon Amatu today condemned the attack on the construction company working on Owerri- Umuahia road and Owerri-Okigwe roads which led to the killing of their security personnel.

The Bishop wondered why those behind the attacks want to stop the good works of the Governor.

Amatu who spoke during his sermon at the Golden jubilee wedding anniversary of Prof Maurice Iwu and his wife, Lady Kate asked if those engaged in the violence do not want the governor to bring progress to the state.

” I drove from Anara to Owerri today and the road was smooth, with no pothole or bad spot. That is the good road the governor is doing which these people don’t seem to be happy with.

The Bishop said
Gunmen had in the last two days murdered two policemen and an army officer providing security for construction workers along Owerri- Okigwe road and Owerri Umuahia road

He said there is need for the people of the state to support the governor to accomplish his developmental agenda in the state.
