The misleading information therein was attributed to the reason for the killing of the Enugu catholic priest, Rev Fr. Paul Offu by the Fulani herdsmen.

The information, Orient Daily learnt, led to numerous calls by the prelate’s friends and family to ascertain his state of health.

The Amichi diocesan communicator, Ven Chukwuebuka Chukwuemeka in a statement he personally signed, debunked the accompanying message to the trending video, saying its ill motivated and the handi work of mischief makers who, he said, seek to cause panic in the society.

“The action in itself is born out of ill will. It is total disservice to the society and should be condemned by all Nigerians.
