It was a sad day at St Thomas Catholic Church, Onilekere, Ikeja Lagos as Parish Priest, Daniel Nwankwo was shot by gunmen on Friday.

Eyewitnesses said the clergyman’s assailants posed as parishioners attending the morning mass.

It was gathered that the incident occurred around 9 am.

One of the witnesses explained that the victim had just finished attending to a church member when he was attacked.


“They were three in number. The men came into the church as if they were parishioners,” a church member, simply identified as Valentine told TheCable.

“When they arrived here, father was taking confession. As he was walking away after rounding off, they approached him and told him they need N5,000 to use in paying the hospital bill of someone.

Another witness, who refused to disclose his identity, said the attackers scaled the fence after hitting their target.
