NAIJ.com gathered that a pastor was murdered by a six-man gang who attacked him while he was feeding his poultry on Umuahia, Abia state.

According to reports, 48-year-old Pastor Nnaemeka Ukenye, was ambushed and murdered on his farm recently.

The leader of Behold He Cometh Pentecostal Church, in Ikwuano local government area, Abia state, was reportedly shot and butchered by a suspected six-man gang, on May 13.

He had gone to feed his poultry at his farm in Umuobia Housing Estate, Umuahia, when his assailants came out of hiding, sent his workers running away in fear, and then shot and butchered him.

One of his workers who witnessed the murder, said they had first asked the deceased if he knew any Ngozi who worked for him.

Here's what the Oga said:

My Oga said no and turned to us to ask if there was anybody like that. We said no. The assailant claimed that our oga was owing the said Ngozi salary. One of them brought out a cutlass and hit me on the back, asking me to disappear. Others and I ran in different directions. They held our oga down. We heard our Oga shouting, after which three gunshots were fired. Everywhere became quiet thereafter.

When I waited for a long time without hearing anything, I sneaked to where they held our Oga and behold, his butchered body was lying at the centre of the road. We called his brothers, who came and we rushed him to the hospital, because we noticed that he was breathing very slowly. On getting to the hospital, he was confirmed dead.

We then took his corpse to the state CID to make entry and they directed us to Ubakala police station, where we made entry before taking his corpse to mortuary. The whole scenario looked like he wanted to run before they hewed him down, then dealt several machete blows on him, probably, to make sure that he was dead. They came with a black Toyota car. They were about six in number, two came out from the bush and the other four came with the vehicle. It happened at the back of Holy Ghost Secondary School. They collected his phones and the money on him.
