A senior catholic priest at St.Mary's Catholic Church, Eziama, Isiala Mbano LGA in Okigwe Diocese of Imo State has been alleged to have shot his follow priest over a dispute which has lasted between the Senior priest and his Junior colleague for awhile now.
The priest was reported to have shot his assistant last Wednesday if not the intervention of God, who saved the Amaraku born-priest (name withheld).
There is an indication that the bishop of the diocese has taken up the matter to save the image of the church.
However, Ifeanyicy.com gathered that Bishoperic has been making arrangements to remove the priest from the parish to face suspension in the coming days.
Earlier, when our reporter visited the Catholic priest today to hear his own side of the story, he refused to talk to the press and insisted that the diocese is on top of the matter.
